Vancouver-filmed ‘Arrow’ star Stephen Amell speaks out amid allegations against producer


Canadian “Arrow” star Stephen Amell is offering to help “in any way, shape or form” as Warner Bros. Television Group investigates allegations of sexual harassment against an executive producer for a number of Vancouver-shot superhero shows.

Andrew Kreisberg has been suspended from his work on “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” amid accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching from 19 former and current employees.

In a video posted on his Facebook page, Amell said he offered his support to the “Arrow” cast and crew on Monday morning.

Amell stressed to them that “if anyone ever feels anything less than 100 per cent safe or anyone feels as though they aren’t allowed to express themselves and be the person that they are, that they should come to whomever they’re supposed to go to and that I’ll stand right beside them, right behind them.”

“I’ll speak on their behalf, if need be,” said the Toronto native, who starred in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.”

“I also think that in situations like this, if you’re not an active part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem, period.”

The accusations against Kreisberg were first reported by Variety, which did not identify the 15 women and four men, who said they feared retaliation.
