Shocking Things You Never Knew About The Arrow Star "Stephen Amell"

He’s Loves Words, But Is Bad At Scrabble

Stephen Amell has vocally expressed how much he loves words. He reads about vocabulary, and has worked with several of his Arrow co-stars to create new words for philanthropic purposes – most notably “sinceriously.” However, such a passion for language apparently does not translate to skill at the popular word-based board game Scrabble. Prior to donning Oliver Queen’s green hood, Amell played villainous werewolf Brady on another popular television show on The CW: The Vampire Diaries. During this stint, Amell decided to kill time by playing challenging actress Candice Accola to a game. She beat him – badly. Amell admits that there is a strategy to winning Scrabble that goes beyond merely having a large vocabulary to draw from, and that he still harbors at least a little resentment over the loss. This has us wondering whether or not we should consider "sinceriously" a viable Scrabble move or not.
