Do you love CW’s Arrow? Do you adore its star Stephen Amell? Of course you do! He’s a great guy who is constantly doing lovely things for his fans. Take this story for example…
Amell couldn’t make it out of Vancouver to surprise a young Arrow fan at her birthday party, so he did the next best thing: created a special video message to be played for the children in attendance.
The party was for a young girl named Nataly, who turned 12 and had an Arrow-themed party. Her mother sent the invitation to Amell via Facebook last week with the caption, “My soon to be 12 year old asked for an Arrow themed party. Since she’s such a great kid, she’ll be getting an Arrow themed party. Starting off with an awesome invitation.”
If you couldn’t make out the sound from the video, Amell said:
Hello! Happy Birthday Nataly. I heard from the grape vine, I heard from you Mom, that you are having your 12th Birthday now. I was needless to say invited, and if I wasn’t working… I’m actually in a Hotel room right now, In Vancouver, and probably shooting until the day of your Birthday party. We’re gonna shoot until around 7am in Vancouver. I remember my 12th Birthday party… I think it was themed around wrestling. I was a big wrestling fan. I thought the invitation to your party was awesome. You look great!. I’m glad you’re a fan of the show. And I hope you and all of your friends have a fantastic Birthday. And if you don’t… YOU WILL FAIL THIS CITY! Nataly Happy Birthday. All the best to your parents. Enjoy.
How sweet was that, I mean honestly? Not a lot of actors would take time out of their demanding schedules to make a 12 year old’s Birthday extra special.
I’m turning 34 soon. Do you think I can get a special video from Emily Bett Rickards who plays Felicity Smoak? I man can dream, a man can dream.
Arrow airs Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
