Arrow star Stephen Amell gave a very special gift to a very special fan during the show’s panel at this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego.
During the Arrow panel, a young girl named Sara from the High Desert who was dressed in full Arrow cosplay approached the microphone with a question for Stephen Amell. Despite the costume, the question was not directly related to the show.
For three years Amelle has worked with Represent.com on the “F**k Cancer” campaign to help sell T-shirts and other items to raise money to fight cancer. He even hosted the first “F**k Cancer” event in London.
Sara is fighting her own battle with cancer and so she was wondering if Amell would be making any more of his “Fight Cancer” shirts in the future. Amell got to know Sara for a moment and when he discovered that she attended Comic-Con every year, he offered her something special to return to him at next year’s Arrow panel: an Arrow necklace made for him by a friend that he was wearing. Check it out in the above video.
When a video of the moment was shared online, Amell even retweeted, as seen below.
See you next year Sara. https://t.co/SrGlgWO5Hb— Stephen Amell (@StephenAmell) July 23, 2017
We’ll check in with Sara again at next year’s Comic-Con.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. Oliver returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum).
Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
