Stephen Amell, answering the question of if Felicity is the long game in all this at SDCC 2014.
Sometimes his answers cry for the need of visual aids. Just saying.
A few days ago my 8yr old brother tells me he wants to be famous on the internet (I know, kids these days, when I was his age I just wanted to have Metabee), so he asked me yet again today, and, still in the spirit of SDCC, I looked once at his baby blue eyes and thought, well, I might as well make this fun for me too. So after asking him if he had a green hoodie I asked how would he like to dress up as green arrow. I’d get to dress him as Oliver, he’d get maybe 10 notes, think he’s famous (he’s a kid, what does he know?), win-win.
After adapting a “costume” with what I had at home, I was getting the camera ready and he asked if he could eat candy from the bag on the table, I said “Yes, sure, but you’ll have to share with Felicity”, and that’s the face he made, thankfully I was quick enough to shoot it. It was the best pic from the whole bunch, and I hadn’t even put on the grease paint. So yeah, I guess throwing a little Felicity makes any version of Oliver better.
So here is a picture of kid (I better not dare call him baby) Oliver worrying about sharing his heart shaped candy with Felicity.
*May the records show and everybody know that he would rather have been Hiccup (he’s actually growing out his hair to look like him). Also he wanted me to post the one where he had the grease paint on and looked super rad and is not satisfied with my choices. He still has no idea who this Felicity is and there’s really little candy left, so she better hurry up. Wait till I tell him about olicity.
