Arrow is synonymous with action. On tonight’s menu at Port Metro Vancouver, Arrow stunt double Simon Burnett rappels down a zip wire from a lift and runs across a shipping container. Locals can expect the sound of simulated gunfire and the sight of a simulated explosion at the foot of the Main Street overpass. This afternoon, the Arrow stunt team tested the rig several times with a body weight black bag before putting Burnett in the harness for some rehearsals. Finals should look spectacular tonight against the lit-up backdrop of a working port. Update: Night shoot Arrow airs Wednesday nights on The CW in the U.S. and CTV in Canada. #AmellWednesdays
Photos by Sean Koo/@Scoobykoo. How can Sebastian Blood be a bad guy? Just look at his face on the Sebastian for Mayor buttons worn by his supporters at Arrow’s candlelight vigil in Robson Square last Thursday night. Fans spotted Sebastian Blood (Kevin Alejandro) on set under the Granville Bridge in mid-August at Arrow’s Ca$h for Gun$ rally. And he’s still around in some form on episode 2×10 Blast Radius.

An explosion at a “Sebastian Blood for Mayor” candlelight vigil in Starling City Square brings Arrow on his motorcycle. That was the hit CW show’s big sequence filmed in Robson Square in downtown Vancouver last night with 200+ background performers. Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) walks west on the stairs above the rally. Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) is down below with the other beat cops acting as security. Fans spotted Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), Thea Queen (Willa Holland) and Diggle (David Ramsey) on or near set as well. And there could have been others. Arrow filmed different parts of this rally and the explosion aftermath until about 5:00 a.m. this morning. Everyone we’ve ever known in the Arrowverse could have [...]
It’s good to know that Vancouver has a hero looking out for it. Arrow (Stephen Amell), formerly vigilante The Hood, kept watch over us from the roof of the Vancouver Art Gallery last night, while crew on the ground filmed him in a tracking shot. Fans watched the Broken Dolls episode live on screen, which featured its own Vancouver Art Gallery rooftop scene with Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and Arrow, and then some intrepid local fans headed down to the Vancouver Art Gallery to see the show film live on set.

Bullet returns as Sin. Like many fans of The Killing, I still mourn the Pied Piper serial killer’s last teen victim, so it feels right that she’s been resurrected as the Black Canary sidekick Sin in the Arrowverse. Below is a promotional photo of a sidekick meetup: Black Canary sidekick Sin (Bex Taylor-Klaus) meets Arrow sidekick Speedy (Colton Haynes). I watched Arrow film one of these sidekick-time- two scenes in an alley east of Main Street and north of Broadway in mid-August. Fortunately, Arrow’s producers are said to be as fond of Bex Taylor-Klaus as The Killing fans are, so she’ll be sticking around for a while.

Try as I might, I did not catch Caity Lotz on set in Vancouver as the Black Canary so it’s good of Stephen Amell to share the first official photos of the Black Canary and Arrow on his facebook page. Arrow airs Wednesday nights on The CW and CTV.
Arrow had a wide open shoot on the north plaza of the Vancouver Art Gallery today. I almost collided with Willa Holland (Thea Queen) skipping off in the direction of Pacific Centre on a break as I approached the set. Others spotted Colton Haynes (Roy Harper). And star Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen/Arrow) and his pregnant wife Cassandra Jean strolled past me, takeout coffees in hand. The scene: on the north steps District Attorney lawyers Adam Donner (Orphan Black’s Dylan Bruce aka Hot Paul) and Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) watch a press scrum down where Diggle (David Ramsey) is standing. Dylan Bruce (Orphan Black’s Hot Paul). Press scrum. Then Arrow brought in an ambulance for what seemed to be a scene [...]
Cousins Stephen and Robbie Amell star in back-to-back Wednesday night shows on The CW this fall. Both action series film in Vancouver and share the same kickass stunt crew, as you can tell from this promo. Arrow and The Tomorrow People premiere on Wednesday, October 9th, on The CW’s #AmellWednesdays.
SHOOT: Stephen Amell & Kevin Alejandro Film ARROW’s “CA$H FOR GUN$” Under Granville Bridge – Updated
Arrow’s “CA$H FOR GUN$” event under the Granville Bridge yesterday filled the Yaletown neighbourhood with smoke and the echoing sounds of simulated gunfire. The scene: gang members drive up to a CA$H FOR GUN$ event on a truck with a large machine-gun mounted on the back and open fire on the crowd. Billionaire Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), aspiring Starling City councilman Sebastian Blood (True Blood and Southland’s Kevin Alejandro), Oliver’s sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Thea’s boyfriend Roy Harper in his signature red hoodie (Colton Haynes) and Roy’s Glades pal Sin (The Killing’s Bex Taylor-Klaus) are among the targets. Someone is shot but I don’t know who. In a suppertime scene, Oliver (Amell) and Sebastian Blood (Alejandro) ducked behind a squad [...]
Willa Holland (Thea Queen) and Bex Taylor-Klaus (Sin) were spotted on set together at Yaletown’s Mary and Lorne Brown Park this morning. They greeted Katie Cassidy (Laurel) as she wrapped a scene with Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), walked down the hill together and then broke into a run so that Willa could catch up with her TV brother, as Arrow cast and crew headed to the next location under the Granville Bridge : a “CA$H FOR GUN$” community event in The Glades that is rudely interrupted by gang members with a very large machine gun. Willa Holland introduces Katie Cassidy to Bex Taylor-Klaus (The Killing’s Bullet). Katie Cassidy leaves set as Bex Taylor-Klaus and Willa Holland walk down the slope [...]
