The Canadian-born actor and star of Arrow, Stephen Amell, attended the recent Fan Expo in Toronto, and when returning back to the U.S. was stopped at the border.
Apparently, Amell's frequent flyer miles flagged him as a potential risk.
Or maybe the TSA Agents just wanted to meet the Arrow.
Stephen Amell recounted the experience on Facebook:
At the airport very early this morning coming into the US. Was flagged and brought into the secondary inspection area, where the following exchange took place:
Me: This is strange, I come across the border all the time.
Agent: That might be part of the problem. It seems your travel habits have set off an alert that you're a likely candidate for the transport of either narcotics or cash.
Me: ............... Really?
Agent: Really. Need to ask some follow up questions and go through your bag. I'd prefer to just tell my superiors that you're the (expletive) Arrow, but there are procedures we need to follow.
Arrow returns on Wednesday, October 8th at 8pm ET.
