Stephen Amell hast his Arrow
co-star Colton Haynes' decision to come out publicly earlier this mont
h (May 2016), and revealed how a fan tried to force him to 'out' the star during an appearance commented at Comic Con a few months ago.
Speaking to E!, Amell recalled how he asked Haynes for advice after struggling to know what to say to curious fans asking about the star's sexuality.
“A fan three or four months ago at a Comic-Con convention basically tried to bait me into outing him," Amell explained.
"I got in touch with [Colton] and was like, ‘Hey, man, this happened [and] I didn’t know what to say. I simply deflected and we moved on.' He emailed me back and said, ‘You know, I really appreciate that and I’ve recently made some decisions over the past few months and I’m excited about what’s in the future."
The 35-year-old, who stars as the Green Arrow in The CW superhero drama, praised Haynes' decision to come out publicly after battling with anxiety and depression, saying: "I'm so happy for Colton. As long as he is living his best life and he is at his most happy, because that is stuff that I’ve seen him struggle with."
