Stephen Amell’s appearance on a podcast did not go as planned when the “Arrow” star suffered a full-on panic attack in the middle of the discussion, forcing him to cut the whole thing short.
Amell, 38, paid a visit to former “Smallville” star Michael Rosenbaum’s “Inside of You” podcast. According to the episode synopsis, Amell “opens up a lot about being at his wits’ end and being completely burnt out mentally, physically, and emotionally.”
This candid discussion, the synopsis reveals, “leads to Stephen suffering a panic attack mid-show… leaving in an unprecedented manner… and then returning with enough bravery to re-address his current mental health.”
Amell took to Twitter to confront what happened, admitting that “it wasn’t pretty” as he was “in a really bad spot” at the time.
However, he also let fans know that “I’m doing much better,” and encourages them to give it a listen.
