In a recent interview with USA Today, Robbie, 25, and Stephen, 32, open up about their shows.
“The show’s always been very much a journey from the character we meet in the pilot, which is almost a prisoner of war, a vigilante, to becoming the hero that we know, the Green Arrow,” Stephen shared about Oliver in Arrow. “Last year was about revenge and this year the city needs something very different. And his journey is a little bit more hopeful there. Concurrently, we’re watching his adventures on the island, where he’s getting darker and darker because he had to become more of an animal to survive. So, as he darkens there, hopefully he can regrow some of his humanity at home.”
Robbie added about The Tomorrow People, “All of these Tomorrow People come from a really damaged situation, because they all thought they were losing their minds. They were hearing people in their heads. My mom â€“ I can’t tell her I have superpowers â€“ still wants me on my medication. I’m good, but what reason does she have to believe me? I didn’t just wake up one morning and get better.”
Arrow airs @ 8PM and The Tomorrow People @ 9PM TONIGHT on The CW.
