Arrow on The CWStephen Amell and Seth Gabel Spill Details on Arrow 1×12



Arrow 1×12 Vertigo details from Seth Gabel and Stephen Amell. TV Guide’s Natalie Abrams published the interview on January 29th, 2013.



TV Guide’s Arrow Interview with Stephen Amell and Seth Gabel:

“He don’t have any super powers per se, but I think he still qualifies as a super villain because he is psychotic,” Gabel tells of his version of The Count

“I really want to make The Count worthy as being Arrow‘s adversary,” Gabel continues, noting he spent a lot of time figuring out how his psychotic character would hold a gun. “Ultimately, I found that being super casual with it and super relaxed about it — like I might drop the gun at any moment or blow someone’s head off at any moment — was the coolest way to do it. The Count has a physical presence that can rival anyone.”

After Thea was arrested for crashing her car while under the influence last week, Oliver (Stephen Amell) will go on a manhunt to find out who is responsible. “For Oliver, in this instance, it’s personal because it involves Thea,” Amell says. “Uncovering this guy and sending the police towards The Count is a way that Oliver can get Thea off the hook. We see a lot more personal responsibility, angst and determination from Oliver than maybe we see when he’s just pursuing someone on the list.”

The Count, however, will take pride in the pain he’s caused Oliver. “Anything that gets to someone and takes their power down a notch and increases his power is a good thing,” Gabel says. “He sadistically feeds off of the suffering of others and the acquiring of wealth and power in his own right.”

Because of that, Oliver may go too far in his quest for vengeance, which may lead to a return visit from The Count in the future. “There’s something that the Arrow does that will possibly make things much worse in the long run,” Gabel says. Adds Amell: “He is formidable, and I don’t think, regardless of what we see Wednesday, that we’ve seen the last of The Count.”
