Stephen Amell comments on Emily Bett Rickards ARROW exit

Arrow star Stephen Amell has taken to social media to react to the news his co-star Emily Bett Rickards is leaving the show. Late last week Rickards announced that she will be exiting the series ahead of its final season in the Autumn.

Amell laments on the fun the two have had acting opposite each other for the past seven years and how the show will not be the same without her. He, of course, ends by stating he is excited to see what she does next.
