While on the carpet we were able to chat with them all on why the show is so addictive. There was a overall consensus that people love watching people be bad.
The show is also fun to watch because you can never guess what shocking thing will happen next. We asked all the cast members what plot twist so far has been the most shocking. We got answers ranging from Charlotte's father really being David Clark, to Lydia's fall off the building in the 5th episode, but what answer we were most excited from was Madeleine Stowe, who told us the best is yet to come! We can't wait to tune in and find out.
The sexy cast also commented on the sexiness of the act of revenge. While many weren't keen on the idea of revenge and try to not ever act out of vengeance, they do understand that the human psyche has some sort of drive to committing revenge. Watch the video to hear from the cast what they each say about human nature and revenge.
Inside on the panel, there were a few spoilers revealed including an upcoming episode that will take place in the year 2000, as well as an episode in the 90's. The cast couldn't help but make fun of how funny Nick Wechsler's, who plays Jack, hair will look during the 90's. They also revealed that coming up Victoria does something that goes too far in protecting her son Daniel, and it might start to cause a rift between them.
Creator and Executive Producer Mike Kelley also spoke to why he chose Emily VanCamp as the lead. He knew that this character was not necessarily likable, so the actress to play Emily Thorne would have to have something about her that made people like her. And the minute he met her, he found her so kind and likable that he knew audiences would root for her as the lead and not even know why.
Both female characters are equally devilish, and Madeleine isn't afraid to admit how much she loves playing Victoria, exclaiming, "It's a ball!" She loves playing this woman because there is no other woman like her on television and she can't wait to read what evil she commits next. Not to mention she is a total mess, and who doesn't love playing a mess.
We can't wait to see what Emily and Victoria do to each other next, but it is sure to be a fun ride! You can watch Revenge at on ABC at 10PM on Wednesdays.
