Arrow star Stephen Amell has responded to co-star Juliana Harkavy's farewell to The CW series.
Harkavy took to Twitter yesterday and shared an emotional statement as Arrow began its final week of production where she reflected on her time in the series. In addition to the farewell statement, Harkavy shared an image of herself taken the day she learned she had landed the role of Dinah Drake. Harkavy expressed her gratitude toward her fellow cast members and thanked Amell specifically.
"My cast. Who would welcome me with open arms and become my greatest source of strength," she said in her post. "My soulmates. My family. And Stephen, our gracious and unwavering leader, to whom I am eternally grateful."
Amell responded later that day via Twitter, saying, "It's cool when you get to work on your dream job and also become best friends with someone." Harkavy replied, simply saying, "4000."
