On-Air On-Soaps caught up with some of the dazzling stars of Revenge, and the executive behind the scenes, to get some inside scoops of what is to come, how they like working with each other, why the series has become such a runaway hit, their thoughts on daytime soaps, and of course, some dishy and fun tidbits!  So far you have read our chats with Emily VanCamp (Emily), Madeline Stowe (Victoria) and Henry Czerny (Conrad) and how those steamy stars truly know how to show us … The art of revenge!

Today, we have for you two of the steamiest cast members who play the heartthrobs of Revenge, Josh Bowman and Nick Weschler.  These guys on-screen alter-egos, Daniel Grayson and Jack,Porter, are all kinds of mixed up over Emily and her games!  But who is the ultimate man for her?   We chatted with the handsome duo to get their thoughts on the hit ABC primetime soap that is also becoming an international sensation from England to Australia!  

Josh, being from England, it’s amazing how the English love soaps!  Do you think that is why Revenge just got picked up there? Why do daytime or primetime soaps do so much better internationally than they do in the U.S.?

JOSH: Yes, the English do love the soaps.  Look at the success of Downton Abbey!  Our show Revenge has similar undercurrents with lots of secrets and stuff going on.  With England being my hometown, if you will, I hope it does well there.  But revenge is a global theme I think everyone can relate to.  I think everyone can relate to a story of going after something they want, or hurting someone, or wanting someone to be hurt and not having the balls to do it.  That is why I think this show is a hit!

Nick, what do you think about the phenomenal success of the show?

NICK: Oh my goodness.  My answer used to be, “I don’t know.  We just lucked out.”  But then I saw episode 15 with an audience on the big screen and watching the fan reaction and feeling their energy.  Having that reaction as they were watching the episode was pretty awesome.  And you know what?  It is, at least in part to the show.  They do a great job.

Are you shocked each week by the scripts you get?  Perhaps, where you would go, “Oh my God … he is doing this?”

JOSH: Always, always!  Everyone in the cast of characters is. We look around and we laugh and we cry, and we pat each other on the back and we get angry.  The room during our read-through each week is fantastic!

Daniel is finally turning into quite the juicy role!

JOSH:  Yes, now it is!  Our creator, Mike Kelley is writing some great stuff for me.  Daniel, as of episode 16 is in jail, and there is some violence that is going to happen and some backstabbing that is going to happen, and more lies and secrets.  It’s drama … high, high drama!  It’s realistic without being unrealistic.  That is what I will say.

Nick, what is the best part about playing Jack Porter?

NICK:  I t is pretty different than anything else I have done.  Usually, I play the bad guy, which is weird; because I am the quiet, most insecure dude you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.

The both of you have a romantic interest in Emily VanCamp’s Emily Thorne on Revenge.  How is it working with her?

JOSH: She is fantastic and extremely talented.  I learn from her everyday.  She is a great actress and without her the show would be nothing!

NICK: She is one of the nicest people I have ever met.  There is a thing where she tears up instantly when you get her to laugh.  I love that about her.  Sometimes, even more than acting, I like having a captive audience and just horsing around and making my friends laugh.  So it’s always fun working with her and these people that I get along with so well. But just making Emily laugh is so satisfying when she has to wipe tears away!  It feels just so good. (Laughs)  I think you just get her smiling and she does it!

What can you preview that is ahead for good guy Jack?

NICK: Basically, Jack is going to start protecting his brother, Declan, and he is going in search of answers about Amanda.

Do you consider Revenge a soap?

JOSH: I think it’s a hybrid of one and soap-ish.  It’s not too much of a soap, but it is a soap without it being over-the-top.

An all-new episode of Revenge airs Wednesday, April 18th (10PMEST on ABC) called “Doubt”  Here is the lowdown: Daniel’s imprisonment sends Victoria to depths that no one thought possible, as the surprise return of a past love (James Purefoy as Dominik Wright) provides a destructive but welcome distraction from her family’s struggles. Meanwhile, Jack’s search for Amanda grows more desperate as he comes under suspicion for murder, on “Revenge.”

So who do you think Emily should end up with Jack or Daniel? Let us know!

will not watch this show until Erika Slezak is offered a contact. Zero interest in supporting ABC.

And if she is asked I hope she says no to abc/disney, but yes to another network ,I miss Erika Selzak.

Agreed ! It has been far too long since the wonderfully talented Erika Selzak has been seen.

Oh, I miss her so much. But honestly, I would rather remember her as she was than see her on something not worthy of her talent, class & personality. She is truly one of a kind & every single day when I look at my cast photo of OLTL it makes me so sad. I love every face in the photo & just this morning, laying in bed looking at it (it’s across from my bed) I was just thinking how rude, shortsighted, just plain stupid it was to throw all those lovely, talented, wonderful people out of a job, they just tore that show right out of our lives & I still get so angry, nearly one year to the day that we got the news.

I look at my cast photo every day too. I miss it terribly. GH is easing the pain a little, but it is just too upsetting that Blair isn’t staying on. I want Erika Slezak on something….preferable a non ABC cable show……or Dowton Abbey.

Very well said Gloria.I also get the feeling that something is missing at 2 oclock one life to live was there for 43 years and it was replaced by garbage.

Revenge is a horrid soap opera. Bad acting and it jumped the shark after Lydia survived falling onto a taxi cab. Stupid! To make matters worse it’s racist. All the rich Hamptonites are white while every maid of Victoria is Asian american. How racist! Asian americans are affluent and have a higher percentage of getting higher educational degrees than whites. Yet they have to be portrayed as the help for the white people. The only racial minority cast member is named Ashley Madekwe I think. She has to portray a glorified assistant to Victoria. The racism on Revenge and bad acting is why people are turned off by this soap opera.

General Hospital - Interviews

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”
