Arrow actor Stephen Amell has become a big household name, thanks to the success of the hit The CW series, and it seems that talent runs in the family. Stephen's cousin Robbie Amell stars in the new series The Tomorrow People, which has been given a full season by The CW and Robbie has revealed how he learned about the good news.
Amell told Collider, "I was standing naked in my kitchen. I had gotten back from the gym and I peeled off my clothes and was about to hop in the shower, and my phone buzzed with a missed call. I saw that it was from Phil Klemmer, our writer/producer/creator. I knew that we were finding out soon, but it was a holiday in Canada and it didn’t feel like it was a day we were going to find out. So, instead of calling him back, I just went to my computer, searched The Tomorrow People and clicked on news and there was nothing there."
He added, "So, I called him back and he gave me the good news, and then I freaked out a little bit. Then, I finished going about my business and showered and got back to my day. But, it was great. I ended up making the rounds, calling my family and my friends, and let them know the good news ‘cause they’re all really strong supporters of me and the show. Everybody was really, really happy to hear about it."
Robbie Amell and Stephen Amell have taken over The CW on Wednesday evenings, with Arrow airing at 8/7c before The Tomorrow People then airs at 9/8c. What do you think of The Tomorrow People so far?
