REVENGE's Emily VanCamp Interview: Channeling her inner bitch, the scandals, and a preview!

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!  Throughout the week, you will read how these steamy stars truly know how to show us … The art of revenge!

We start with the woman who is at the epicenter of all the bitter vitriol and drama, and who has made Emily Thorne, one gal we would not want to tangle with!  After all, she probably has more up her sleeve than anyone knows, or does she?  Here is our  “quickie” chat with the beautiful, charming, and beguiling, Emily VanCamp!

Your role is so juicy! You must find a way to channel your inner bitch in it.  And what is so great is Emily Thorne vacillates between icy, to being conflicted, in executing her agenda for revenge.

EMILY:  It is a lot of fun playing this part, because any kind of tension I feel in my day-to-day life I get to release that in my work! (Laughs)  I don’t know where that “inner bitch” comes from, but I guess everyone has it somewhere in them, and I get to kind of unleash it every day at work, and that it is fun.

And it’s so different than your role on Brothers  & Sisters!

EMILY:  I needed something different.  I really needed a change and I waited it out.  I didn’t want to just jump into the next project unless I really felt excited about it.  I just fell in love with the script for Revenge immediately.  And actually, it wasn’t one of the favorites that is for sure.  Nobody really knew if people would respond to it and if it would do well, and yet, I just wanted to do the pilot and see where it went from there, because it really spoke to me.  It was certainly the most challenging role I had read that pilot season and the most “juicy” and exciting part.  I could see myself enjoying it for a long time.

There is a big moment in episode 16 called “Scandal” when Takeda is beating Emily  up and he throws her against a wall.  Was that fun to do?  It looked dangerous!

EMILY: Oh my God!  I thought I broke my jaw during that scene!  I woke up the next morning and had a hard time speaking.  So I guess because your adrenaline is running so much, you don’t feel a lot of pain shooting it.  Then the next morning, I was all bruised up. And as an actress, you really want to go for it.  But now I am thinking, “Maybe I should tone it down next time and fake it a little bit,” I suppose.  But we had a great time and Hiroyuki Sanada (Takeda) is incredible to work with!

When you and Madeline Stowe go through scenes together that call for you to be both steely and bitchy with each other, you must laugh after the director yells, “Cut”!

EMILY: Of course we have to laugh.  You have to laugh because it’s so absurd.  I love Madeline so much. We have this great relationship on set and we have this great relationship off set.  So how can you be so evil to this person?  I don’t know, but we manage to do it with a smile, and it’s a lot of fun to play.  However, you have to remember you are acting, because it’s funny. (Laughs)

Million dollar question: Does Emily truly love Daniel Grayson?

EMILY: I think so.  But, there is a big game-changer coming up that will be surprising to her and surprising for the viewers that might help gather a few more Team Jack followers!

What do you think about the glamorous clothes you wear as Emily?  She actually is quite the fashion-plate!

EMILY: We get to wear such beautiful clothing, and it’s hilarious because I am not a fashion forward person.  I get to wear this sexy clothing and then put my t-shirt and jeans on to go home.

Why do you think Revenge is so popular worldwide?

EMILY:  I think revenge is just a universal theme.  You say “revenge” and you think of The Hamptons and all the beautiful people and the rich.  And also with this time in America with a bad economy, and people looking for an escape, it all came together with perfect timing for us.  The show has really caught on!

An all–new episode of Revenge airs on Wednesday, April 18th at 10PM EST only 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 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 are you enjoying Emily VanCamp on Revenge?  Who do you want Emily Thorne to end up with Daniel or Jack?  Let us know your thoughts!

This is a brilliantly written prime-time soap. By far it is the best show on air.
I LOVE this show.
My one qualm, is it goes weeks and weeks without a show, and it takes awhile to catch on what is going on due to the time lapse from the last show.

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

This past week, General Hospital fans were thrilled with the news that longtime fan favorite, Kristina Wagner (Felicia) was on her way back to the soap opera to tape new episodes.  However on Saturday, the actress shared even bigger news.  She is back on contract at the ABC daytime drama series.

Kristina revealed via her Instagram: “I’m pleased to announce I just finished my first work week on contract with General Hospital. The good people there have made it a well oiled machine. I’m so impressed with the way they navigate the Covid protocols. It’s not easy but we’ll worth it. We’ve got some fun storylines coming up. I’ve been thrown in the middle of a current storyline and I think Felicia’s part in it gives it some color. Stay tuned!”

Earlier in the week on Tuesday via Twitter, Kristina expressed: “Tomorrow I head back to work on General Hospital! Lucky me. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of that family once again. Here we go. More to come. Felicia Scorpio rides again.”

Wagner began her GH role as Felicia Cummings, the Aztec princess back in 1984 and has appeared on and off the show since then.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.
