After the explosive shocks, twists and revelations in the finale of Revenge, Season 2 of the popular ABC drama series, premiering on September 30th, is sure to heat things up even more. With everything that occurred in Season 1, including the fate of some of the characters left in question, Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) will be back, colder and more determined than ever to exact her revenge.
During a set visit that was held as part of the TCA Press Tour, show star Emily Van Camp talked about Jennifer Jason Leigh joining the cast to play her mother, how the mother-daughter dynamic will affect her character, just where she’ll draw the line when it comes to what she’ll do for revenge, whether or not she can ever make peace, who she thinks her character is destined to end up with, what she’s learned from past mistakes, why she thinks people root for her character, and the fun of getting to play the campy side of the show. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
In the indie drama Norman, teenager Norman Long (Dan Byrd) is a high school loner who’s just trying to get through every day. After his mother’s sudden death, Norman is now forced to deal with the reality that his father (Richard Jenkins) is starting to lose his battle with stomach cancer and, in a moment of anger, he finds himself caught in a lie that leads everyone to believe that he is actually the one with the disease. Meanwhile, the unabashedly optimistic Emily (Emily Van Camp) struggles with her feelings for Norman, in the face of his supposed impending death. Through his relationships with his father and with Emily, Norman must confront his conflicting emotions and figure out who he wants to be.
During an exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Emily Van Camp talked about how delightful it was to play such a lovable and open character, that she flew in to shoot the film on weekends while doing her last TV show Brothers & Sisters, and how a lie like Norman’s can be forgivable, if you understand where the person is coming from. She also talked about how much fun she’s having playing the twisted Emily Thorne on the ABC series Revenge, how excited the cast is to have a full-season pick-up, that there are many unexpected and jaw-dropping twists and turns to come, and that she would love to do a zombie movie, if the opportunity arose.
