Last day of Season 1 of Arrow

The journey started on the 10th March 2012. Twenty-three episodes of action, epic stunts, drama, laughter and a few shirtless moments and we’ve come to the last day of filming for Season one of Arrow.

I asked the cast and crew, via Twitter, what was the best memory for them filming Season one of Arrow. Here’s what they had to say:

“For me it’s always the moments with cast & crew; taking our jobs seriously yet with laughter & really enjoying the nights in the rain & wind working with actors & stunts. The days/nights in the trailer all of us enjoying the time & hours we spend together & doing good work!”
Patricia Murray – Make-up Artist

The Season One finale is one you’re going to want to watch live. Titled Sacrifice, the story is from Greg Berlanti and the teleplay is written by co-creators Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg. BamBam tweeted about the final scene:

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Arrow. They’ve worked long hours, spilled blood – both fake and real and created a lot of WOW moments. The stunts in Arrow have been incredible. James has choreographed some truly memorable fights. I know I’ve learned some moves.

Have a well earned rest and re-charge the batteries for Season Two. Oh boy!

It would be remiss of me if I didn’t finish off by sharing the amazing gift the Arrow stunt team presented Stunt Co-ordinator J.J. Makaro for the end of season. I’m blown away by the kindness and generosity of these guys.
