Stephen Amell Calls Actors Strike “Myopic” & “A Reductive Negotiating Tactic”


Stephen Amell, whose Starz drama series Heels returned for its second season over the weekend, is not going to the mat for the actors strike that is currently taking place in Hollywood.

Amell, best known for playing the lead role in The CW’s Arrow, has called the actors strike “myopic”, “incredibly frustrating” and a “reductive negotiating tactic”.

Amell has become one of, if not the most high-profile, actor to speak out against the Fran Drescher-led SAG AFTRA strike against the AMPTP. While both the actors and writers strikes have received positive support from a majority of union and guild members publicly, it’s important to note that not everyone supports them.

“I support my union, I do, and I stand with them but I do not support striking, I don’t. I think it is a reductive negotiating tactic and I find the entire thing incredibly frustrating and I think the thinking as it pertains to shows like the show that I’m on [Heels], that premiered last night, I think it’s myopic,” he said during an appearance at Galaxycon in Raleigh.

In June, some 97.91% voted in favor of handing SAG-AFTRA leadership authorization to walk out, with nearly half of eligible members casting ballots. It called the strike on July 13.

A-list stars such as George Clooney, Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain are among those that have publicly supported the walkout, in addition to thousands of others that have appeared on picket lines across New York and LA.
