Stephen Amell makes everything alright; Was all a misunderstanding; Originally: Arrow’s Stephen Amell blows off our interview to go to a bar.
Update: So things can happen and we all know that. On a press tour, particularly at a junket like a red carpet, a celebrity is dealing with not just the media, but fans and handlers. Sometimes certain media entities will butt in front of others so they don’t miss their chance, which is partially what happened with Kyle. It’s all a bit of a whirlwind and sometimes the celebrity is just in the middle of it. Wonder boy Kyle McMahon has updated us and Stephen Amell is once again a God in our eyes!
Wow! Well, that was something. The story went live and blew up. His fans were angry at me. Mine were angry at him – and he’s got a helluva lot more then I do. In the midst of all of that craziness, he personally reached out to me and wanted to make it right. Neither of us wanted this negativity. He offered not only to answer my question, but to do an inspirational video for Leukemia Research Foundation of Delaware – a charity very near and dear to my heart.
So to update, Stephen Amell isn’t just an good guy – he’s a fawking awesome guy!
As one fan tweeted, “If nothing else, this has been great publicity for today’s release of TMNT2!” Some stories do have a happy ending after all! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows starring Stephen Amell as Casey Jones is out now!

We sent boy wonder Kyle McMahon to Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con 2016 to let his geek flag fly! One of the highlights for both you our lovely readers and Kyle himself was a scheduled red carpet interview with Arrow and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows star Stephen Amell.
I left Day 1 one of the Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con to catch the red carpet premiere of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows and interview Stephen Amell on the red carpet. I was given an awesome place on the red carpet and patiently waited my turn. In fact, I was standing there for an hour and a half.
With about one person ahead of me, I excitedly made sure everything was in order with my gear and stood there smiling and waiting patiently. For some reason, he skipped over me for the people who were next to me who had just come up randomly at the end. That’s Okay I’m sure he’ll come back to me after he’s done with them. They asked multiple questions even though we were asked to have one.
Yay! They were finally done their questions and it was my turn! Except he told me and the final interviewer, “Sorry guys, I got to roll out.” With that, he left. I checked his Twitter soon after and he was going to a bar to watch a basketball game.
So, after leaving the Wizard World convention to go to a scheduled interview with Stephen Amell, he rolled early to go to a bar, with me literally standing there in front of him. Cool story, bro!
Ouch! We’d like to make an excuse for the actor but can’t think of one at all. He seems like a good guy but knowing that there’s only two people left who have been waiting there just for you is inexcusable.
