It’s also worth mentioning that he isn’t the only famous member of his family. Perhaps the name Amell sounds familiar? Well, it’s possible you’re associating Robbie with his also-famous cousin, Stephen Amell, who stars in the hit series, Arrow. Although almost a decade apart, Robbie and Stephen have a pretty good relationship both personally and professionally.
“We were really close when we were young, and he’s seven years older, so there was a little gap when he was 15 and I was 8 and we didn’t have a whole lot in common,” Amell told the NY Post.
“We’d see each other occasionally at a family dinner, but we both fell into [acting] with…really lucky coincidental happenings, and we both just ran with it. It’s been really fun, we had a movie [‘Code 8’] come out that we produced and starred in together go number one on Netflix, which is unbelievable.”
The cousins even got to shoot Arrow and The Flash together—something Robbie called “pretty wild.”
