Robbie Amell FanYour 24/7 Source for Everything Robbie Amell

Robbie Amell hangs out poolside in his new feature in the August 2013 issue of Bello mag, out on iTunes now.

The 25-year-old actor opened up about his new show, The Tomorrow People and sharing the night with cousin Stephen, of Arrow. Check it:

On The Tomorrow People: “I’ve really enjoyed the parts that I’ve gotten to play, but I’ve always wanted to play something a little darker, and it’s every kids dream to have super-powers. It looks good. You can immerse yourself in the world of the show, without loosing it when a teleport looks horrible.”

On Amell Wednesdays: “It wasn’t until we were doing a promo for Wednesday nights where I kind of leaned over and said, do you realize how insane this is? For one of us to be the lead of a show is massive. For two of us, that’s crazy. For two of us to be on the same network? That’s completely insane. Same network, same night, one after the other is impossible.”

On stunts: “I’m dedicated as anybody could be. Jeff, who’s one of your stunt coordinators has a full set-up at his house in Vancouver, for stunt training. He said he’d bring me out there on weekends. I’ll spend a Saturday fighting.”

One of the most anticipated new fall shows is definitely The Tomorrow People on the CW. It follows the lives of a group of humans that have evolved to have special powers, which is why they are referred to as “tomorrow people.” At the CW Television Critics Association Press Day (TCAs), the executive producers and cast discussed the show and what viewers should expect.

Check out six things to know about the new series, The Tomorrow People:

Robbie Amell didn’t get the role because his last name is “Amell.” He may be the cousin of Arrow’s Stephen Amell, but that wasn’t how he got the job. Robbie previously worked with Greg Berlanti on Brothers and Sisters and the producer also helped him get his Green Card. He was originally brought in to audition for the role of John (now played by Luke Mitchell). Later, he auditioned for Stephen and was cast in that role.

The show is based on a 1970s British series of the same name. Berlanti said it won’t be a direct remake, “We would like to be true to the spirit of the show, I think, you know. And certainly we have we have character names and things like that, but our hope is that we kind of evolve and it’s its own thing.”

Jedikiah is a hero. At least according to the character’s portrayer, Mark Pellegrino, “From the first scene. Yeah, I always think that the characters I’m playing are justified in their actions and heroic in nature. And I’m protecting the human race, so as far as I’m concerned, you know, you got to do dirty things sometimes to protect four, five, six billion people, how many folks are populating the planet?”

Cara is a kick-ass woman. Julie Plec reflected a moment in the pilot where Cara “throws out her hand and she blows somebody off. ” and thought in that moment she was “a badass chick.” Plec describes her as a “no nonsense, take no prisoners, can really, really, really kick butt, really is a very strong heroine, but also has this deep backstory that makes her an incredibly compassionate, almost it’s almost in that her empathy for others is her Achilles heel. So it’s kind of it’s a great character for a woman.”

Expect awesome fight scenes. The Tomorrow People uses the same fight choreographers and stunt coordinators as Arrow. (Arrow has the best action scenes on television.)

Episodes will be both standalone and contribute to a larger mythology and story arc. Berlanti explained how each hour will be set up, “We’ll be doing a couple different things that make it hopefully standaloney …. One of the things we’ll be doing is we slowly dole out the histories and the breakout stories of the different individuals … and so we’ll be telling little mini-flashback stories that kind of tell a story about how they, kind of, ultimately joined ‘The Tomorrow People.'” And, the other reason he gave is a bit spoilery, so you’ll have to tune in to the pilot to find out.

The Tomorrow People premieres Wednesday, October 9 at 9 pm ET on the CW.

The Tomorrow People, a sci-fi action series about a group of genetically mutated (and attractive!) young adults starring Robbie Amell, was shown today at San Diego Comic-Con as part of the annual Warner Bros. Television pilot screening event. In fact, the event kicked off what’s going to be a packed line-up of fun going on through Sunday.

So what did the crowd have to say?

EW sampled some of the reactions to the show, which is based off the British series that aired in the ’70s. Though, it’s worth noting, that much of the audience polled weren’t familiar with the original series, which audience member Nonie Kimpitak thinks won’t count against the upcoming CW show in any way, as it is an easy world to jump into. “I think, at this point, there are a lot of remakes and most people aren’t aware that there are originals to anything, and it still works.”

Meanwhile, she adds: ”I thought it was pretty good. It’s a little reminiscent of Heroes and Alphas … it was pretty interesting.”

Robert Godwin, who also attending the 6:30 p.m. screening, said Mark Pellegrino, who plays Dr. Jedikiah Price, head of Tomorrow People-hating paramilitary group Ultra, was a highlight. But Godwin hopes star Amell uses future episodes to “get more into the role and the character.”

Elsewhere, Sanehpal Sira said the fast-paced storylines appealed to him, and while he had some concerns, the biggest indicator of the show’s quality is that the pilot kept his attention. “It was entertaining enough to where I sat through the whole thing and didn’t leave. And here, you’re at Comic-Con, there are so many things to see. The fact that we stayed for the whole thing is a good sign.”

TV viewers will have their chance to weigh in on the show when it airs on the CW Oct. 9, and Comic-Con attendees will have a second chance to see the show when it screens before The Tomorrow People panel, taking place Saturday from 5:55-6:55 p.m. in Room 6BCF.
