Thursday Morning Man: Ashton Holmes!
If you’ve been watching the new ABC drama Revenge, then you know that one of the best parts of it is watching Ashton Holmes as the sexy and manipulative Tyler Barrol who will sleep with men and women to get what he wants.
The 33-year-old actor has had a few same-sex kissing scenes but expressed his disappointment at one of the more passionate one with co-star Gabriel Mann being cut.
“I have kissed a number of people on this show and the network has taken it out every time!” he told AfterElton.com last month. “I kissed Daniel (Joshua Bowman), I kissed Ashley (Ashley Madekwe), I kissed Nolan (Mann)…and every time they’ve taken it out. I think it’s kind of a cop out. I think it’s ABC not wanting to push the envelope maybe. When we shot the scene [between Tyler and Nolan] we really went for it, Gabe and I, and then it didn’t air. I don’t know. I don’t know if that’s [creator] Mike Kelley or the network but, yeah, I was real disappointed.”
Hopefully there will many kissing scenes ahead!
Prior to Revenge, the 33-year-old Holmes was best known for his performance as Jack Stall in the film A History of Violence and his role as Private Sidney Phillips in the HBO miniseries The Pacific. He also had a recurring role on ABC’s Boston Legal and was a regular on The CW series Nikita.
