Stephen Amell to celebrate hitting 3 million LIKES on his fanpage, answered 50 questions submitted by fans.
Few of the questions were how cold it was during the battle with Ra’s al Ghul in the mid-season finale, another was if he wants to share a scene with his cousin Robbie Amell who plays Firestorm on The Flash and whether or not Arrow can beat Firestorm in a fight.
While answering how cold it was during the battle with Ra’s al Ghul, Amell goes into detail why he was shirtless during that scene and here’s the quote:
“I was really, really cold. It was — let’s go with Celsius since the majority of the world is going to watch this and not just the United States of America — it was I’d say two degrees Celsius. And it was windy and it was raining,” Amell said. “And that’s one of the reasons why my left pectoral twitched in one of the scenes. The fight in and of itself, I was fine, because we were fighting, but the whole lead-up, I was cold. Cold, cold, cold. We’d been planning to do the fight shirtless for a number of reasons. The first one, I had suggested it to the producers because I didn’t want my stunt double Simon doing one single thing. I love you, Simon. It turns out, though, that Batman and Ra’s al Ghul fighting shirtless on the top of a mountain is a very iconic image from the comic books, so we wanted to honor that as well.”
