My chat with Gabriel Mann of ABC’s “Revenge”
I was a little late to the ABC drama Revenge but am now absolutely hooked! A new episode airs tonight at 10 p.m.
One of the draws is the bisexual character of Nolan Ross played so well by actor Gabriel Mann. I chatted with Gabriel a few weeks ago at an ABC party during the TV Critics Winter Press Tour about his role and about the scintillating chemistry he has with co-star Ashton Holmes (let’s hope Holmes’ character isn’t really dead!).
You can read my story over at Gay Star News which details the gay kisses and Mann’s feelings about Holmes.
But exclusive to Greg In Hollywood readers, here is some bonus material:
Mann on how he approached playing Nolan: ‘There just wasn’t much on the page as to how he should be played or how he would represented. So as much darkness and sensitivity at the same time that I could bring I wanted to keep it open because they never tell us where we’re going. I thought well let me leave it open to interpretation so it’s not beyond the realm if I were to go off-the-cliff evil or it turns out I’ve got a heart as big as Texas and I think we found a middle ground somewhere in between.’
‘I really had no idea what people’s perception of this guy was gonna be before we started. I really was having some moments where I thought people very well may despise this guy in a way that he’s almost the Jar-Jar Binks of Revenge. I thought this will go well or this can go horribly wrong.’
