Arrow - Season 2 - Stephen Amell Interview

IGN TV: Was there any difficulty for you getting back into this role for Season 2, either mentally in terms of where Ollie is at now, or just the physical demands of the role?
Stephen Amell:
Physically, it was actually quite a challenge. There's no way to prepare yourself for a 23-episode shoot, which is just shy of 200 days of production, plus all the different outside demands that came with it. By the time I was at the end of the first season, I was totally burnt. And I got sick for about six weeks. So once I let myself get better, I tried to get a bit of a mental recharge. Like a month before we started shooting this season, I was probably 25 pounds overweight, because I needed to relax. My body was really tired. So it's important that I did that, and that I thought about new ways to approach this year, just mentally and physically. Because we're in this for the long haul. We don't want to do two seasons; we want six. I don't ever want to be sick again after we finish production when I'm supposed to be taking time to relax. So physically, it was challenging, but I'm glad I went through the experience of the first season, because it's just given me all the knowledge on how to pace myself. Right now, we're nine episodes in. We're pretty close to halfway down the season, it feels like, and I feel fantastic.

IGN TV: And that was going to be one of my questions - just how far into the season you guys are right now. And it sounds like you're moving at a pretty good pace.
Yeah, we're at a great pace. We're halfway through episode 9. It's a holiday up here in Canada today, so we have the day off. But halfway through episode 9. And the end of the ninth episode is the unofficial halfway point of the season for us. We came on the air last week, and we'll be on the air for nine consecutive weeks. The ninth episode is the last one before our Christmas break. Last year it was when we revealed the identity of the Dark Archer and set in motion the end-game for our season, and that's very much what happens this year too. It's also the second half of our introduction of Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. These are prime episodes that we're shooting right now. [laughs]

IGN TV: Barry is something I want to touch on in a little bit, but first I figured we could touch on the premiere episode a little more. One of the things that episode showed us is just how badly Ollie is taking Tommy's death, even after several months.

IGN TV: Is that something that's going to be casting a shadow over him for the entire season?
Yes, but not always in the negative sense. He's taking it very hard, but the declaration he makes in the premiere, and one that we hope honor, not just in this season, but through any subsequent seasons of the show, is that he's going to try and be a better person to honor Tommy, and because of what happened to him. The shadow of Colin's character will always be with the show, but I'm really hoping it's not just in a mournful, negative, sad way, but in a positive, character-building way.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
