Biography

A handsome Canadian actor, Stephen Amell rose through the television ranks with roles on "Queer as Folk" (Showtime, 2000-05), "Dante's Cove" (here!, 2005-07) and "ReGenesis" (The Movie Network, 2004-08), winning a Gemini Award for his performance on the latter. He achieved Canadian stardom as a sexy athlete on the Canuck sitcom "Rent-a-Goalie" (Showcase, 2006-08) before boosting his American profile with a string of guest spots on such series as "NCIS: Los Angeles" (CBS, 2009- ) and "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009- ). After playing accused murderer Joran Van Der Sloot in "Justice for Natalee Holloway" (Lifetime, 2011), he scored a memorable recurring role as a rival male prostitute to Thomas Jane's "Hung" (HBO, 2009-2011) hooker. Amell built on his American success with recurring roles on everything from "New Girl" (Fox, 2011- ) to "Private Practice" (ABC, 2007- ) and eventually landed his own star vehicle when he was cast as comic book superhero Green Arrow, a.k.a. Oliver Queen, on the highly anticipated "Arrow" (The CW, 2012- ). Gifted with beauty and brawn, Stephen Amell proved an exciting talent whose rise was cheered by American as well as Canadian audiences.
