Arrow star Stephen Amell recently revealed why he disliked filming his poignant death scene in Crisis On Infinite Earths.
While appearing on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast Inside of You, Arrow star Stephen Amell surprisingly revealed that he was disappointed with the way Oliver Queen’s death was shot during the production of Crisis On Infinite Earths. He explained that when The Monitor brought Green Arrow to say goodbye to his friends and teammates after defending Earth-38 to his dying breath, Stephen Amell shot the emotional Crisis On Infinite Earths scene without Caity Lotz and Grant Gustin.
“They were trying to wrap Caity [Lotz] and Grant [Gustin] before I shot the coverage of the scene where I died. I blame no one for this, but this is a scene with me from Arrow that’s taking place on Supergirl, with a Supergirl crew, with demands on both Grant and Caity. And they’re trying to pull them so that Flash and Legends don’t mess up their day the next day.”
Arrow star Stephen Amell went on to explain that when Oliver Queen’s lying on a gurney in his last moments during the first episode of Crisis On Infinite Earths, he was actually delivering lines to a tennis ball. And although Stephen Amell already mentioned that he didn’t blame anyone for the situation when filming Crisis On Infinite Earths, he doesn’t feel like it’s an “acceptable” way of shooting an emotional scene like Oliver Queen’s death.
“Meanwhile, the f-cking Green Arrow was laying on a gurney trying to deliver his lines to something other than a f-cking tennis ball. So, there are lots of scenes where I’m acting and there just aren’t other actors there, and that is just not an acceptable way of creating the best product, from my perspective.”
