    The intrigue doesn’t stop with ‘Arrow’, as Haynes delves into his ‘Teen Wolf’ journey, opening another chapter of the drama that runs behind the scenes. Contrary to the initial speculation on his separation from MTV’s fantasy hit, it was actually fueled by the production’s petty behavior. 

    In his memoir, he discloses, “The real truth was that they didn’t want to pay me the same amount as everyone else.” The actor further added, “It didn’t help that I was represented by a team of people who made the Teen Wolf production’s life a living hell. So, in order to get back at my team, the production refused to pay me the standard salary.”

    Colton Haynes’ revelations in his memoir offer a peek into the challenges faced by actors behind the scenes. It stands as a reminder for fans that the fascinating world of television often conceals the complexity of professional struggles.
