Robert Patrick "Robbie" Amell (born April 21, 1988) is a Canadian actor and model. He is best known for playing Stephen Jameson on The CW's series The Tomorrow People, Ronnie Raymond / Firestorm on The CW's series The Flash, Fred Jones in the films Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins and Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster, and Wesley Rush in the film The Duff, as well as recurring roles on such television shows as Life with Derek, True Jackson, VP, Unnatural History, and Revenge.
Amell was born in Toronto, Ontario. He is the cousin of Arrow actor Stephen Amell. Along with his sister, he started modeling and acting in small roles in commercials when he was six years old. At age sixteen, he began landing roles in high school plays such as Louis and Dave and Fionia, Picasso at the Lapin Agile and The Importance of Being Earnest. His love for acting made him go to Canadian Studios Acting Academy. He graduated from Lawrence Park Collegiate Institute in Toronto in 2006. He later pursued his career in acting.
Amell had a role in the Canadian Family Channel series Life with Derek, playing lead character Casey McDonald's boyfriend, Max. Life with Derek was distributed worldwide, including US Disney Channel and its international affiliates. He has also appeared in the ABC Family film Picture This.
He played the role of Noel Kahn's brother Eric on the ABC Family television series Pretty Little Liars during the show's third season. Amell has played hockey since he was a child and considered making a career of it until discovering his love of acting. He also takes break dancing lessons. He had a recurring role on MTV's Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous.
He was cast as Fred Jones in the 2009 TV movie Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins, which became the most watched telecast ever on Cartoon Network. He reprised the role in the 2010 sequel Scooby-Doo! Curse of the Lake Monster.
In 2013, Amell received his biggest role to date, lead character Stephen Jameson in CW's sci-fi drama The Tomorrow People, a remake of the British series of the same name. The first episode had 2.32 million U.S. viewers. However, in 2014, CW opted not to renew The Tomorrow People for a second season.
In May 2014, Amell joined The Duff as Wesley, the potential love interest for co-star Mae Witman as "The Duff". On July 9 2014, Amell was cast as a major recurring character on the CW series The Flash as Ronnie Raymond/Firestorm, based on the DC Comics character.
Robbie was a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs ice hockey team growing up, though since his move to Los Angeles, Amell has begun cheering for the Los Angeles Kings, but still calls Toronto his "second team". Amell is also in support of a second NHL team in Toronto via league expansion.
