Arrow shot some scenes in East Vancouver 1 evening a couple months ago at Heritage Hall (which has been used by lots of film crews... including Arrow).
The scenes I saw in the evening were mainly stunt scenes involving "The Arrow" & Laurel Lance stunt doubles (Simon Burnett & ) jumping off a ledge of a building to the ground below with the aide of a wire. While the stunt team perfected that work, they also had Stephen Amell, all suited up (and had I known what I saw at the time.... I woulda posted them before Entertainment Weekly Magazine did) with a brand spanking new mask, no more faicepaint. He was doing scenes with Katie Cassidy as Laurel, clearly post-jump where she reads over some files they just grabbed out of the building.
By the way, random side quandary - when Oliver is in his get up, he isn't "Oliver" hes "Arrow". So what do you call Arrow & Laurel together? Laurrow? Arrel? Cant call it Lauriver since he isn't being Oliver at the time.
After these scenes were shot, the crew moved to the fronty to film a scene of a man I couldnt identify going into a "hospital" in the "pouring rain".
Arrow returns from its Holiday Hiatus Wednesday nights starting January 15, 2014 on The CW in the U.S. & CTV in Canada.
Arrow is also up for several of our Best Of TV Awards 2013
