Robbie Amell hits small screens this week in The CW’s new series “The Tomorrow People.” Robbie has special powers on the show, and we have to say he has them in real life too. What are they? Among them, the power to make us weak in the knees. To honor this special ability, we’re naming him this week’s Hump Day Hottie.
Check out this dreamy photo of Robbie, and keep reading for more details about him!
Vital stats: The 25-year-old actor grew up in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. When he was a teenager, he began acting and also attended the Canadian Studios Acting Academy and Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute.
And if the last name Amell sounds familiar, well that’s because Robbie is “Arrow” star (and former Hump Day Hottie) Stephen Amell’s cousin. Good looks run in the family!
Where you might have already seen him: Robbie has appeared all over TV, including roles on shows like “Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous,” “1600 Penn,” “Alcatraz,” “Revenge” and “True Jackson, VP.” Additionally, he recently appeared alongside Chris Colfer in “Struck by Lightning,” which the “Glee” actor wrote.
Why you should take notice of him now: This week he stars as Stephen Jameson in “The Tomorrow People.” It’s kind of like “X-Men.” The show is based on the British series of the same name, which aired in the 1970s. It’s about young people with special powers. How’d they get them? Well, evolution.
By the way, the show airs the same night as “Arrow.” Wednesdays mean twice your Amell pleasure, twice your Amell fun.
“It’s really crazy when you think about it, but I’ve been pretty lucky,” he told The Toronto Star. “What are the odds of landing a show like this, much less having two people from the same family in Toronto in shows that are not just on the same network but right after each other?”
Until next week, when we choose another Hump Day Hottie, you can salute Robbie by gawking at the photo above!
