Revenge favorite, Gabriel Mann (Nolan Ross) is getting to play both sides of the fence, sort of speak, these days on the scandalous primetime ABC soap!  Currently, Nolan has been involved with the beautiful Padma Lahari, but coming this Thanksgiving, former Guiding Light star, E. J. Bonilla shows up in a flashback as Marco, who looks to be the ex of Nolan!  Then, on the following Sunday episode, Marco comes back in the present! So what is up with the tech genius?  Is he truly bisexual?  In a conversation with the gaystarnews.com, Gabriel revealed that he relishes being one of television’s only bisexual characters! Here are a few excerpts:

Gabriel on playing a bisexual character:  “I kind of thought that was really interesting as a character because we’ve had some really great, interesting gay characters on television, we’ve certainly had a hundred, million years of everybody being straight on TV too. I thought that bisexuals weren’t well represented. So as we were kind of figuring out who this guy was, I felt like that would something really interesting to play with, certainly different than some of what we’ve seen on television.”

Gabriel on if swinging both ways is for Nolan’s own ulterior motives:  “It leaves all doors open, even beyond the sexuality in terms of the genesis of that whole character, my whole feeling about it was that I wanted to leave everything open,’ he adds. ‘Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy? Is he sleeping with guys? Is he sleeping with girls? Are his intentions true? Is he really just the ultimate two-face?’

Gabriel on Nolan’s last love affair which ended up with the character of Tyler being killed-off:  ‘I don’t know that Nolan misses Tyler but Gabe misses acting with Ashton  Holmes. He was just so much fun to work with and the character he created for the show combined with the character that I created for the show were just a match made in hell and that’s drama gold sometimes. I miss that kind of tension that we had. Some of those were some of my favorite scenes from last year.”

So what do you think of having Nolan being bisexual on Revenge? Do you think he will sleep with who ever suits him at that time? Do you think there’s more to the story? Let us know your thoughts!

I LOVE that he swings both ways – I’d bet my last dollar that he sleeps with whomever for a reason though – to further his plans, but I also think that he’s lonely and that is a deciding factor as well. Very complex character played to perfection by Gabriel – can’t wait to see his interactions with Marco.:)

I think bisexuality should bexplored in American TV because especially as it relates to men we refuse to believe that it exists in this country. But on the other hand producers often cowardly use it as a plot device to back away from a gay male story when they start to get heat from sponsors , the network or viewers. That happened on Dynasty in the 80s and it pissed off actor Al Corley who originated the role of Steven Carrington. In my opinion bi stories can create great drama and should be used too seriously explore all the social… Read more »

If you’re a writer, you should check your spelling, grammer and punctuation.

I think it’s an interesting way to go.
I also think Nolan will sleep with whomever to get what he wants, but that he is lonely and maybe looking for love in all the wrong places…(Que the music)

I LOVE that Nolan is different then the rest of the canvas. Gabriel brings such brilliance to his portryal of Nolan that I wouldn’t care if he was into cars. I’d still be rooting for him.

I love Nolan. He is intriging and I want him to be bisexual. It would be very disapointing if he wasn’t bisexual.

btw – Gabriel said Nolan is a bad dresser, but he seems to rock whatever he wears! A week or so ago he wore a white hoodie for a shirt and looked ready for the runway – I called my sister in another state to say “That’s just a damn hoodie and he looks phenomenal!”

I know this is not a popular opinion, but I really prefer NOT to see gay or lesbian relationships played out on network television … just do not feel it is necessary to become invested in a show that you really love only to have them use their platform to bow down to the gay agenda. If people want to watch that behavior there are plenty of other shows to choose from, yet it seems the hollywood crowd make this an “in your face” issue for many of the best new shows today. I don’t get it. The “straight” population… Read more »

I LOVE the character of Nolan and as a bisexual woman, It’s wonderful to finally see a “bisexual” character, I feel that though Nolan could have a purpose, or reason behind those he hooks up with in the show, both male and female, I don’t believe it’s all for a “hidden” agenda. I think that that it goes deeper than that for the character. I think he’s ultimately a good guy with a big heart that genuinely cares for those he becomes involved with. Everyone is truly entitled to their opinions, but as for mine I am so glad to… Read more »

Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson Share Disagreement with Each Other Over Vaccine Mandate; Will Continue ‘Stone Cold and the Jackal’ Shows In 2022

On the latest episode of their That’s Awesome podcast with Steve and Bradford, released over the Thanksgiving holiday, General Hospital’s Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) and Steve Burton (Ex-Jason Morgan) took some moments to address how Steve’s decision to not adhere to the ABC and GH Covid-19 vaccine mandate (which caused the two-time Daytime Emmy-winning star to be let go from the show) would affect their live shows, podcasts, content moving forward, as well as if it has caused a riff in their friendship.

When addressing listeners of the podcast, Anderson shared the the two would continue on with their projects, but that he disagreed with Burton’s decision to not follow the GH vaccine mandate.

Bradford expressed: “If you know us, and know are brand, if you will, it’s built on friendships, and like all friends, we have disagreements.  I disagree with Steve’s decision and he knows that. But over are years of friendships, we have had plenty of discussions about this and other topics, and sometimes we agree and sometimes we don’t, but at the end of the day we are still friends.”

Steve added: “We usually don’t get into decisive things on the show.  Look, I have a right to believe in what I want, and you have a right to believe in what you want, and that’s what makes this country great and we have never been about division.”  In addition, Steve was clear that he has not agreed to any interviews at this time on the subject of his exit, and that he is already moving on, sharing: “I am just grateful for my time at General Hospital and the people and the friendships I have made there, especially with the fans.  I have had an incredible life. Listen, I’m OK. I’m at peace. I ‘m moving forward and I am excited about it.  Like I said in my video, when one door closes, multiple doors open, and that’s what happened already.  I’ve gotten a lot of requests for interviews that I don’t want to do, because I don’t want division … that’s the bottom line.”

Look for Anderson and Burton to hit the road in 2022 and continue with their successful Stone Cold and the Jackal live comedy show and appearances.
