John Barrowman on ‘Arrow’, Malcolm Merlyn, and ‘Legends of Tomorrow’

     July 1, 2016

At this year’s 42nd Annual Saturn Awards, I managed to get a few minutes with John Barrowman on the red carpet before the ceremony started. If you’re not familiar with the Saturn Awards, they honor the very best in science fiction, fantasy, horror and other genres in film, television, home media releases, and theatre annually. This ceremony stretched from 2015 to early 2016.
