Not only does Stephen Amell play a ninja-like warrior on TV, it turns out his ninja skills are also pretty awesome in real life.
The “Arrow” star proved that once and for all when he competed in a special edition of NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” in conjunction with “Red Nose Day”. The episode — which was filmed in March — will be aired on May 25.
In this sneak peek of the upcoming episode (above), Amell is seen taking on television’s toughest obstacle course with ease — no surprise, considering the ultra-buff 36-year-old often does his own stunts on his CW superhero show.
In fact, Amell is a longtime fan of “American Ninja Warrior”, and approached the show about appearing — a decision that seems to have turned out pretty well.
And while Amell may have made it look easy, he didn’t emerge unscathed, judging from these painful-looking photos he shared on Twitter after his “ANW” challenge.
