arrow and the flash actor stephen amell 39 reveals he tested positive for covid 19

Stephen Amell has revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 while filming the Starz show Heels.

The 39-year-old actor, best known for Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, shared the news on Monday during Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast Inside Of You.  

‘I’m a retired superhero, but take one last thing from me,’ the star began. ‘If I’ve had any anxiety, I know that we speak about this sometimes on the pod and, obviously you know, I had a panic attack on your podcast. Take it from a guy whose only sense of anxiety and panic has been the concept of contracting COVID.’

The actor said he has never thought he could die from the pandemic.

‘I never worried about the lethal aspect’ of the virus, he said. But his anxiety came from the idea that ‘I would be letting hundreds of people down.’

Amell, who has been wed to Cassandra Jean since 2012, then shared: ‘I didn’t have anxiety about the fact that I would give it to other people, which again I possibly did, which is unsettling in and of itself. 

‘But you have to understand that because of this anxiety, I have actively, actively, actively tried to avoid contracting this virus. And guess what? I f****ing got it anyway, so be smart.

‘If you’re being smart, stay smart. And if you’re not, you’re just dragging this s**t on longer for everybody else.’

It came on slowly.

‘I woke up and it was the strangest thing. My f***ing right ear was plugged and I was hot and cold,’ he said. 

He lost his appetite and was dizzy. The actor lost 15 pounds in three weeks.

When he got the positive test, ‘for me it became holy f**k. I just destroyed this show because I’m No. 1 on on the call sheet and I work every day more or less… 

‘I’m in my head going, ‘S**t, they’re going to have to shut down the production. We’re not yet done with the first block of two episodes. Did I just ruin this?’ he added.

He felt ‘incredibly fortunate’ that if he went into isolation, he had a job waiting for him.

Worried about the show: When he got the positive test, 'for me it became holy f**k. I just destroyed this show because I'm No. 1 on on the call sheet and I work every day more or less… 'I'm in my head going, 'S**t, they're going to have to shut down the production'

‘Again, thank you very much to Starz for being so supportive and what they did over the past three weeks, the show shut down for one day. 

‘What they were able to do is mind boggling, quite frankly. It just goes to show that they were prepared for it, but not everyone has the luxury of taking two weeks off.

‘In fact, most people don’t. We are in the midst of a global pandemic and times are tough for a lot of people.’ 

Together Stephen and his wife Cassandra have daughter Maverick Alexandra Jean Amell, aged seven. Before Cassandra he was wed to Carolyn Lawrence from 2007 until 2010.

His spouse: Amell with wife of eight years Cassandra Jean at the 145th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky in May 2019

Could he BE any more excited to get engaged?

Friends star Matthew Perry revealed that he popped the question to his 29-year-old girlfriend Molly Hurwitz and her answer was a big yes!

The 51-year-old sitcom star gushed about his new fiancee to People Magazine, calling her the ‘greatest woman on the face of the planet.’  

Big news! Friends star Matthew Perry revealed that he popped the question to his 29-year-old girlfriend Molly Hurwitz and her answer was a big yes, according to People Magazine on Thursday (Pictured in 2017)

‘I decided to get engaged,’ he told the outlet. ‘Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.’

Hurtwitz, who is a literary manager, confirmed that the pair were officially a couple back on Valentine’s Day by sharing a sweet post on social media. 

‘Second year being my valentine, but his first as an Instagram influencer. HVD to my favorite,’ she wrote to Matthew to celebrate the holiday.  

But, his relationship had become public knowledge several months before that when they were spotted out together.

Last November, he and Molly were photographed being affectionate together outside a restaurant in West Hollywood. 

Meanwhile, Matthew and Molly were reported to have split earlier this year, after sources reported they’d gone their separate ways in May. An insider said: ‘It happened very recently. 

‘It was very amicable, but they have both decided to go their separate ways.’ 

It’s not known if the couple did split but since reunited, or if the breakup rumours were false, but friends of the couple insisted he’d finally found the one in Molly.

Another source said: ‘His inner circle have wanted to see him settle down for a long time, especially Courteney Cox, and they hope him and Molly go the distance. 

‘Molly prefers nights in his private cinema watching films and eating home-cooked meals than going out.’  

This will mark the first marriage for Perry, who is famous for playing loveable and sarcastic Chandler Bing in Friends.

However, he has had several highly publicized romances with notabel names.

Perry briefly dated Baywatch star Yasmine Bleeth in 1995 and then moved on to Oscar winner Julia Roberts from 1995 to 1996. 

His longest relationship was with actress Lizzy Caplan from 2006-2012.

After several years out of the spotlight, Perry is set to join his former co-stars for the highly-anticipated and long-awaited Friends reunion which has been sidelined by COVID-19.

Earlier this month the TV star tweeted: ‘Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!’

The television personality was due to take his place on the panel for the live shows following his return to the UK after completing the recent series of Dancing With The Stars, the US version of Strictly. 

But show bosses and Bruno have decided it will be safer for the veteran judge to remain in the US and continue his cameo role on the Sunday night results show via satellite link up.

A source close to Bruno said: ‘After much consideration, it’s just too dangerous for Bruno. Strictly has already been hit so heavily by Covid.

‘They didn’t want to take the risk. Bruno loves the show and will watch as ever from the States and give his feedback on Sunday’s show.’  

Bruno was due to isolate for two weeks after returning from the US before making his comeback on the BBC1 series, yet the plan has been thwarted.

Current judges Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse, who will return to the panel this weekend following her own period of isolation after an urgent trip to Germany, will complete the series as a trio. 

It was originally reported in August, that her would make a comeback later this year after ditching the show amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Bruno usually jets between London and Los Angeles to sit on the panel for both the long-running UK show as well as its US counterpart.

But due to the global coronavirus pandemic impacting travel restrictions, the Italian choreographer had favoured the US version when forced to pick just one.

At the time, insiders said BBC bosses were keen to get Bruno to the UK and hope that he could make a comeback for the Strictly final later this year. 

The plans have now been thwarted due to the concerns around travelling in the pandemic, meaning Bruno will continue with his remote appearances.
