Oliver Queen is 50 percent ‘Arrow’ and 50 percent regret. What is his biggest? Stephen Amell weighs in.
Recently, fans got to encounter the ‘Arrow’ stars up close and personal. Heroes and Villains Fan Fest held a panel with all the heavy hitters of the CW hit show. Since fans were able to ask questions, they got answers from the actors themselves.
While tackling the hard questions, Amell got to answer what his biggest regret was.
“It probably is not Felicity, because he’s had literal family members murdered in front of him. Sorry,” An over zealous fan yelled out ‘Felicity’, and this was the perfect response from Amell.
Due to going through Hell and back, Oliver Queen has had his fair share of regrets, but ultimately one sticks out more than the others.
“I think his biggest regret is probably not being able to save his mom,” the actor said, more seriously. “For sure, that’s tough. We actually viewed that episode in Walla Walla. We did a random viewing party, and we set it up — ‘It’ll be really fun! There’s like 200 people there!’ And the episode ends, and everyone stared at me like I had just tricked them into something.”
Furthermore, This answers comes perfectly into play, with the 100th episode on the rise, and the alternate timeline that Oliver finds himself in.
Oliver (Stephen Amell) wakes up to a life where he never got on The Queen’s Gambit. Robert (guest star Jamey Sheridan) and Moira Queen (guest star Susanna Thompson) are alive and well. Laurel (guest star Katie Cassidy) is his loving fiancée and their wedding is imminent. Everything seems perfect, but Oliver starts to notice small imperfections that make him question this new reality. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and the recruits take on a new threat with help from The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (guest star Melissa Benoist).
Finally, the 100th episode is in the middle of the four-night crossover event, beginning Monday November 28th and going throughout the week.
