In an unfortunate incident, Arrow actor Stephen Amell injured his back while performing a stunt on the set of Heels last week. Currently, he is recovering effectively at home post medical evaluation. According to a source, he is eagerly waiting to get back to work as he had already been away for a long time. Amell’s small accident did not throw the production of Heels off course, and it is still running smoothly.
The incident in detail
Stephen Amell recently got back to work after he tested negative for the coronavirus. After a thorough rehearsal, he performed a risky stunt on the set of Heels in the presence of the medical crew and stunt professionals. However, even after several rehearsals, he, unfortunately, injured his back during the take and was quickly examined by the on-set medic. Once again, Amell was advised to stay home and recover. The back injury came in almost within two weeks of his recovery from the COVID-19 infection. Amell seems to be having a hard time staying healthy!
Heels are set in a small Georgia community. The plot is based on the rivalry between two brothers over their father’s wealth. Both of them are wrestlers, making the war between them more real than ever. The first season of the show is still in production. The release date is unknown. Even though Amell’s injury did not affect production, the release date will surely be pushed further ahead due to other inconveniences.
