Can’t get enough of Revenge? Either can we! Voted Best New Drama at this year’s People’s Choice Awards, Revenge has taken the soap world by a storm. We caught up with some of the stellar cast from the hit new show and they let us in on some of their personal secrets.

Party Girl
Emily Van Camp (Emily Thorne) say’s she’s the kind of girl who will wait until the end of the night before she really gets going. “I’m a little anti-social at first, but I’m not immune to dancing on tables either.”

Shy boy
Nick Wechsler (Jack Potter) says that in middle school, he was really shy and people rarely wanted to talk to him. “High School was where I became the greatest guy in the world so a lot of people wanted to talk to me”

Josh Bowman (Daniel Grayson) has starred in beach scenes several times without a shirt, but thanks to the make-up team on Revenge, his biggest secret is covered up! Away from the set, Josh sports a huge cursive tattoo down the right side of his torso.

Ashley Madekwe (Ashley Davenport) started a blog which has grown to be one of the top fashion blogs. It contains entries about clothing, her career and her personal life.

Dear friend
Connor Paolo (Declan Porter) still keeps in touch with his co-star from his time on Gossip Girl. “Taylor [Momsen] and I have been friends since we started, and she’s still one of my best friends…we’re usually just hanging out in Taylor’s hotel room wherever she is because she’s on the road all the time.”

Undercover man
Henry Czerny (Conrad Grayson) holds a little secret that not many people know. He is the famous voice behind the crucial line, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it…” in the film, Mission Impossible.

Pretend reporter
Madeleine Stowe (Victoria Grayson) grew up in a working class neighbourhood of Los Angeles. Before she became an actress and had her own career, she once pretended to be a reported just so she could meet actor, John Travolta.

Baby Bombshell

April 19th, 2012 by Soap World | No Comments | Filed in Uncategorized


NEIGHBOURS: Lucas (Scott Major) panics when his ex-lover, Vanessa (Alin Sumarwata) reveals she's pregnant with his child

Things haven’t been looking up for Lucas, after losing his former lover to his best friend on Neighbours. But things are about to spin out of control once again when his ex-lover, Vanessa, returns with the a life-changing revelation.

Embracing his new life as a single man, Lucas is greeted by an unexpected guest when he returns home from a wild night of partying. He is shocked to find it’s Vanessa waiting for him, but even more so by her unexpected news: she’s pregnant with his child.

Completely blindsided by Vanessa’s revelation, Lucas struggles to make heads or tails of the situation, and finally decides that he needs some time to process the news. But the news is too much and Lucas does all he can to push Vanessa away, questioning whether or not the baby is really his, and insinuating that she is only after his money.

Insulted by Lucas’s accusation, Vanessa orders him not to make contact again, and states that she doesn’t need him or his money to take care of her self and her baby. But after some time has passed, living in denial is no longer an option for Lucas when Vanessa once again turns up in Erinsborough. This time it’s not about Lucas – she’s back to apply for the newly vacant chef position at Lassiter’s.

Threatened by her presence, Lucas decides to sabotage Vanessa’s chances of securing a job by revealing to Paul that she’s pregnant, and this news quickly scratches her from the list of promising candidates. But now Lucas is torn about what he’s done when he learns his actions have placed Vanessa in financial turmoil, so he reaches out to Vanessa by attempting to give her money. Vanessa is still hurt from his accusations and declines his offer, and is determined to assert her independence.

Soon after declining Lucas’s offer, Vanessa secures a job at Harold’s, but just as things are looking up, she is plagued by morning sickness, and her decision to soldier on only makes things worse. Vanessa is rushed to the hospital, leaving a somewhat ambivalent Lucas to wonder if he’s pushed Vanessa to a miscarriage.

Will Lucas do the right thing and finally man-up?

Love is a Battlefield

May 11th, 2011 by Soap World | 1 Comment | Filed in Uncategorized

I can’t remember the last time someone wasn’t in a battle for love in a soapie storyline, but this month it looks like there is going to be an all out war in some of our favourite shows.

The one to watch is The Bold and the Beautiful as a scheming Amber continues laying traps to gain her very own piece of the Spencer pie. I’m hoping Liam and Hope see through the cracks of Amber’s charade before the sun sets on their happily ever after- but do you think this is the end for the star-crossed lovers?

Meanwhile in Neighbours, Jade is struggling with her feelings for Kyle, but he is smitten with Kate. She’s already proved she’s not afraid of playing dirty, but just what will Jade do, when Kyle asks her for advice in wooing Kate? 

And on Home and Away, Elijah begs Leah for another chance, forcing her to choose between him and her blossoming romance with Miles. 

So what do you think will happen? Can Amber succeed in stealing Liam away for good? Will Kyle discover Jade’s true intentions? And who will Leah choose? Post your answers below, or send an email to

THE WORLD OF SOAP… With Rebecca Lake

December 21st, 2010 by Soap World | No Comments | Filed in Uncategorized

Gone… But Never Forgotten!

A couple of weeks ago, I was scouring the soap opera websites and I saw that Days’ Christie Clark was headed back to Salem to reprise the role of Carrie Brady. After recovering from my bout of Blastisius Pastitius (or “blast from the past” as it is more commonly known), I got to thinking about other absent characters that I would like to see back in Salem, and on the small screen in general…

B&Bs Deacon Sharpe: Sure, he’s fun on Y&R, but who wouldn’t want to see another hot hook-up between bad boy Deacon and Brooke Logan?!

B&B’s Sally Spectra: Although B&B has tried to reinvent Sally’s spunkiness in Jackie Marone, and more recently, Amber Moore, no-one can capture the indomitable spirit of the rambunctious redhead.

Days’ John Black and Marlena Evans: Salem just hasn’t been the same without it’s sweetest doc and sexiest cop. Come on, Days – bring back this smoking supercouple!

Desperate Housewives’ John Rowland (Gaby’s hunky gardener): Phwoar! Need I say more?!

Gossip Girl’s Jenny Humphrey: GG is in serious need of its sulkiest teen to provide a foil for the new (and annoying) perkiness of its resident Queen of Mean, Blair Waldorf

The Young and the Restless’ Patty Williams: It’s only been a few months, but we’re already missing GC’s favourite unhinged cat lady!

A Bit Of Bailey!

November 3rd, 2010 by Soap World | No Comments | Filed in Uncategorized

An EXCLUSIVE Interview with Grey’s Anatomy‘s Chandra Wilson (Dr Miranda Bailey)

To celebrate the NOVEMBER 3 DVD release of Grey’s Anatomy: Season Six, we chatted exclusively to Chandra Wilson – the actress behind the fiery Dr Bailey – about what fans can expect from the veteran hospital drama’s sixth season and beyond!

What can you tell us about your character’s storyline in Season Six of Grey’s Anatomy?

CW- Dr. Miranda Bailey gets promoted at the start of Season Six, so she’s no longer a student; she’s an attending. That means she gets to wear the navy blue scrubs, which is a really good color for me. You will see a return of the determined Bailey in Season Six. She’s the functional, efficient Bailey – the one that doesn’t have time to cry about anything anymore. She’s tired of crying. There are bigger, better and more important things to do in life than sit around and cry all day.

Does Dr. Bailey get a love interest in Season Six?

CW- She needs a break, doesn’t she? She needs some sunshine in her life. Maybe she will find someone in the future, but her head isn’t in that place at the start of Season Six. However, who knows what will happen further down the line?

Do you still enjoy playing this character after six years on the show?

CW- I love playing Dr. Bailey because she brings something new to the table every season. I never feel like I know everything about her; there’s always something else coming out about her personality or her past. I have never got to the point where I feel like I have done everything possible with Bailey. I’m not at that place by a long shot, which is one of the reasons why I’m still having such fun on Grey’s Anatomy.

Is it true that you directed an episode in Season Six?

CW- That is true – and it was absolutely fabulous. I took my prep time very seriously and I tried my best to work as efficiently as possible as the director. I had a ball. Would I do it again? I would love to do it again if possible. It was just great on all levels and I’m so glad to have been able to exercise that part of my creative muscle.

Did you approach the producers about directing or did they come to you?

CW- I casually started talking about it with the executive producers about two seasons ago – and then I started to talk seriously about it during Season Five. I was eventually given the go ahead, which is when one of the directors gave me a book that he considered the Bible of cinematography. He handed it to me and he said, “Learn that.”

What is the book called?

CW- It’s called The Five C’s Of Cinematography and it was very helpful. After that, I just had to pick the right time to direct an episode, which hopefully would have been a light episode for Bailey. The problem was that Bailey was involved in a lot of the storylines of Season Five, especially in the lead up to Izzie’s cancer. I said to the producers, “Okay, let’s go for the beginning of Season Six instead of trying to squeeze it into Season Five.” And that’s exactly what I did.

Are there any new characters arriving in Season Six?

CW- There are a several new characters because our hospital merges with Mercy West in Season Six. There’s a lot of competitiveness with people wanting to hold onto their jobs and there’s a great new dynamic to the show, which has been fun to work on.

What was your most memorable scene to film in Season Six?

CW- In an odd way, I thought it was very interesting to film the scenes at the cemetery at the start of Season Six. We’re always on the hospital set, so it was like a field trip for us all to travel and shoot O’Malley’s funeral.

You have worked with T.R. Knight – who played O’Malley – ever since the show started. How cathartic was it to shoot the departure of his character at the beginning of Season Six?

CW- It was very cathartic for all of the characters on the show, but we all dealt with it in our own way. All of the actors in the cast still talk to T.R. and we all support him. When anybody ventures off and does something outside of the show, we all have absolute support for each other. He’s still in our lives; he’s just not on the show.

Do you think the death of O’Malley was handled well on the show?

CW- I thought it was handled appropriately for an original character on Grey’s Anatomy. The whole purpose of that episode was to talk about grieving and to look at how people deal with death differently. I think it worked really well.

Viewers know how Dr. Bailey reacts to these sad situations, but how do you personally handle such dark themes?

CW- Oh boy… I honestly don’t think you can know until you’re in the situation. Your human emotions catch you completely off guard.

Is it difficult to switch off from your character after working hard on set all day?

CW- It’s not hard at all. The show’s storylines open up conversations outside of work, but Dr. Bailey lives in the studio where we shoot the show and that is where I leave her every night. I close the door and I leave her behind. It’s as easy as that.

What makes Season Six stand out for you?

CW- I think that Season Six is a fantastic year for Grey’s Anatomy. We introduce some great new characters – some long-term and some short-term – and we’ve still got the core group of people that the audience is interested in. You’ll see Dr. Bailey on a new journey in Season Six – plus there’s a merger with Mercy West that takes us into a whole new set of experiences for the hospital. It’s definitely been a good year for the show.

Where do you see Grey’s heading in the future?

CW- I have no clue where we’re going, but I know that the producers and the writers have a plan for the future. They have a chart up on a wall somewhere that we can’t see, but I look forward to finding out about it. Bring it on…
