The star of the original Revenge, Emily VanCamp revealed she is all-for the proposed reboot of the series that ABC is developing.   As fans of the primetime soap know, from 2011–2015, VanCamp took on the role of Emily Thorne, a young woman who showed up determined to get payback on a deceitful and corrupt wealthy Hamptons family.

Earlier this week, the news broke of the reboot which would feature one character from the original cast.

VanCamp told TV Insider, “I can’t say who, but they’re bringing back a specific person, and I love that specific person.”

When reflecting on her time with the series, Emily added: “That was such a special time in my life. I loved making that show and I think it’s just a great theme. We’ll see what happens. It’s very exciting!”

VanCamp currently stars on Fox’s medical drama, The Resident.

So, who do you think is the character that is linked to the reboot to tie the story of a young Latinx woman who wants to bring down a pharmaceutical dynasty to avenge her mother’s death, which is the proposed story? Share your thoughts  in the comment section below.

Oh, Was that Emily’s gay friend? I loved him. I think that’s the first time we saw Justin Hartley. I also liked the guy that played Emily’s dad. Good show.

Oh, yes. Violet! THAT was the adorable, charismatic Nolan Ross! He was absolutely my most favorite character on “Revenge” and he could definitely carry a reboot. My only reservation is with the proposed storyline of this new show…sounds like a bunch of pc garbage, which I definitely do not want to watch. What would be preferable is for the pivotal role be filled by Gabriel Mann with a new avenging plot to be fulfilled each week. Sort of like a corporate “REVENGE R US” headed up by the brilliant, cunning Nolan Ross. That would definitely work for me. P.S. Loved Justin Hartley as Patrick! “Revenge” was also my first looky-loo at him and my, oh my! I sure hated seeing him shipped off to Italy for art school.

Hallmark Channel Chief Bill Abbott Exits In Aftermath Of Same-Sex Ad Controversy

Looks like there is still fallout from the Hallmark Channel pulling several ads from wedding planner, Zola that centered on a same-sex lesbian couple kissing at their wedding.

Now, Bill Abbott, who has been Crown Media Family Networks president and CEO for the last 11 years, is exiting the company.  The announcement was made today by Mike Perry, president and CEO of Hallmark Cards Inc.

No successor has been named. “I have tremendous confidence in the Crown Media management team and, with this team in place, I will begin a search for Bill’s replacement,” Perry said. “I want to thank Bill for his many years of success and contributions to Crown Media and wish him continued success.”

Prior to the firestorm against the cable outlet for pulling the Zola ads, (after conservative group One Million Moms petitioned to have the ads removed) and the network complied, the company was doing well.

Abbott presided over a period of growth and visibility for Hallmark including: Christmas programming and regular opportunities for seasoned A-list stars that in return attracted viewers and ratings. Bill Abbott’s exit is the latest result of Hallmark’s efforts to quickly turn the page on the bad PR.

Deadline reported that according to people familiar with the internal discussions, many people at the network expressed their preference for restoring the ad quickly, while Abbott went against their wishes and kept it off the air.

Judith Light To Receive Prestigious Honor At GLAAD Media Awards In New York

Another wonderful acknowledgement is coming its way to two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winning actress, Judith Light (Ex-Karen, OLTL).

News on Wednesday has that Light will be honored at the upcoming 31st annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York City with the Excellence in Media Award in a ceremony hosted by Lilly Singh. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, March 19th.

According to Deadline, who broke the news, the Excellence in Media Award is presented to media professionals who have made a significant difference in promoting acceptance of LGBTQ people. Light joins previous honorees Ava DuVernay, Robert De Niro, Patti LaBelle, Debra Messing, Tyra Banks, Julianne Moore, Glenn Close, Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, among others, who have received this prestigious award from the organization.

“Judith Light stood up for and with LGBTQ people when others in media and entertainment refused to speak up, and she has never left our side,” said GLAAD President and CEO Sarah Kate Ellis in a statement “When the GLAAD Media Awards first started and was a small event with little visibility, she was one of the few entertainers who would join us in calling for LGBTQ representation, so it is only fitting to now honor her advocacy on what has become the largest LGBTQ stage in the world. From standing alongside LGBTQ people during the AIDS crisis, to fighting for marriage equality, to now uplifting transgender people and issues, Judith advocates with a unique passion and an unending dedication that uplifts.”
