Emily Vancamp Revenge
February 16, 2012 by staff
Emily Vancamp Revenge, Daniel Grayson – you may have survived your mother’s Fire & Ice Ball, but the flames are closing in fast.
With blood on his hands, the handsome Hamptons prince has some serious explaining to do in the aftermath of the February 15 reveal that the silhouetted figure in the white dinner jacket gunned down on the beach outside Grayson Manor in the pilot turned out to be… someone other than Daniel. (We’ll stay mum on the stiff’s identity for those behind on their DVR viewing.)
“I’ve been kept alive, which is fantastic!” says Josh Bowman in his posh real-life British accent. “I get to continue the madness that is Revenge.” With the 23-year-old’s breakout status, it should come as no real surprise to learn that Danny Boy was never in any real jeopardy despite what it looked like in the addictive drama’s first episode. “I knew I didn’t want the body on the beach to be Daniel,” confesses creator Mike Kelley, who hired a stand-in to play dead in the original scene. “But I made sure Josh believed he was going to die all along. He didn’t learn the truth [about his character] until the table read of that episode.” (Madeleine Stowe, who plays Daniel’s doting mother, Victoria, claims she’s known since the beginning.)
Today, the cast has assembled in a police-station set, formerly home to the short-lived Law & Order: Los Angeles, for a tense 4am interrogation. For nearly three weeks now, the actors have been wearing their same Fire & Ice wardrobe, which has gone through numerous cleanings to get rid of nasty blood and sand stains. The usually sharp-suited Daniel, however, appears as we’ve never seen him before: in jeans and a gray sweatshirt with a bloody bandage on the back of his head. Even more startling, Daniel is being embraced by two bitter enemies of each other – his mom, Victoria, and fiancée, Emily (Emily VanCamp).
Though it’s an uncharacteristically touching scene, considering Emily is determined to make Victoria pay for the wrongful imprisonment of her father, the threesome have grown close off camera. Bowman and VanCamp’s relationship has followed them off the set, while Stowe has bonded with Bowman over their shared love of astrology and routinely laughs with VanCamp about the sinister ways their characters one-up each other every week. “We just look at each other and say, ‘This is so sick,’” says Stowe. “Thank God it’s Emily in this role, because I think with other actresses, things could possibly turn ugly.”
Ugly is an apt word to describe the turn of events at the end of the February 15 episode, when viewers learned that Daniel was not only alive, but that he was actually responsible for firing the first of three bullets into the victim’s chest. The identity of the black-gloved murderer who fired the subsequent two shots will be revealed to viewers by the conclusion of the February 29 episode. (Note to AMC’s The Killing: That’s how you satisfy fans!)
