Amell returned to Michael Rosenbaum's Inside of You podcast, where he suffered a panic attack last year, where he revealed he had tested positive two weeks earlier and had been cleared to go back on set. The interview marked Stephen's first major sit-down since suffering a panic attack since leaving Arrow. According to E! News, Amell explained that he was already self-isolating when his symptoms appeared because another individual working on the set of the Stars wrestling drama previously tested positive. "I woke up and it was the strangest thing. My f*cking right ear was plugged and I was hot and cold," he recalled, adding that he also felt "super dizzy" and lost his appetite and ended up losing 15 pounds.
