Can’t believe Revenge is ending tomorrow for good. I added the edited version of the following interview Emily did with Entertainment Weekly to the gallery. It is in the newest issue of Entertainment Weekly [May 15, 2015] which is on stands now. (If you get the issue and it seems different it’s because I got it from the digital issue)
With the series finale airing Sunday, we look back (and forward) with the primetime soap’s 29-year-old star.
To say that a lot’s happened on Revenge would be an understatement. The scorching-hot show about a dish best served cold saw Emily VanCamp spend four years as Amanda Clarke as Emily Thorne, plotting and scheming and pursuing her complicated agenda against the mighty Grayson family. And with the show ending Sunday, May 10, at 10 p.m. ET, Emily—VanCamp, that is, not Thorne—talked to EW about ending the series after four seasons, handling her character’s final moves (no, she’s not telling whether she survives the show), and gearing up for her next project: Captain America: Civil War.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was it like filming your final scene? Did you know by then that it would be your last one for the show?
EMILY VANCAMP: My last scene was with Gabriel [Mann] and Nick [Wechsler], and they’re two of my very, very close friends. At that point we weren’t completely sure, which is kind of a bummer because it would have been nice to know that we were playing these characters for the last time—they’re so special to us. But at the same time, it’s almost nice that we didn’t know because it would have been almost unbearable to get through.
What were your thoughts when you heard this would be the series finale?
Well, it had been talked about a lot over the course of this season because we all knew, at a certain point, [Emily] has to get her revenge. So it was always a discussion as to how many episodes we could actually draw out of this story without disrespecting the fans and drawing it out so long that it becomes uninteresting, you know?
I think we did a really fantastic job of wrapping up the story within four seasons, and it just sort of felt like, well, if we come back, it’s going to have to be something totally different. I’m kind of happy that ABC allowed us to end this thing without keeping us in limbo. It’s a much nicer way to end.
So four seasons felt like enough?
Four years is a wonderful amount of time to do a TV show. Four’s been my lucky number: [I did] four seasons of Everwood, of Brothers & Sisters, of Revenge. You don’t have time to get sick of it, but you get to really flesh out these characters and develop them over a long period of time. I was always really happy with four.
What did you and the cast do when you found out? Did you call up Gabriel and Nick?
Oh yeah, we have several group feeds going, so you know, sending pictures of seasons 1, 2, and 3 back and forth. I think Gabriel sent 20 pictures to us. [Laughs] We were definitely going through the emotions of it all, but I think it’s bittersweet.
Do you think the finale will provide closure for fans?
Yeah, I do. I’ll put it this way: I think they’ll be satisfied. I think a couple of things happen that they’ve been waiting for for a long time. In the grand scheme of Revenge, I feel like we exhausted all of the different story possibilties. I think we’re ending in a good place, and I think it’s time to move on, as sad as that is.
Great news! Deadline has reported that Emily will be back in the next installment of Captain America, titled Captain America: Civil War. The film will be released on May 6th, 2016.
EXCLUSIVE: In the wake of Revenge ending its four-season run on ABC, sources tell Deadline that actress Emily VanCamp is returning as Agent 13 aka Kate aka Sharon Carter in Walt Disney Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War.
Agent 13 appeared briefly in Captain America: Winter Soldier as the superhero’s next door neighbor under the alias of Kate. She is ordered by S.H.I.E.L.D. to protect him. Her storyline in Civil War is under wraps. In the comics, Sharon is the niece of Peggy Carter, Captain America’s love interest in the first feature installment, who also had her own miniseries on ABC, Agent Carter, earlier this year. The films have not yet established that Agent 13 is Sharon Carter, though she is known as such by legions of Marvel fans. VanCamp is repped by United Talent Agency and Thruline Entertainment.
Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6, 2016 and is being directed by Anthony and Joe Russo who also helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier. VanCamp is also starring in the indie feature The Girl In The Book from director/writer Marya Cohn. The final episode of Revenge “Two Graves” airs this Sunday.
The series finale of Revenge airs this upcoming Sunday. Watch the promo below:
Some of you may remember the Kickstarter campaign for The Girl in the Book, the indie film Emily starred in and filmed a few summers ago in New York City after being fully funded. The project sent backers an update on the film earlier today. Here it is below:
We are pleased to announce Marya Cohn’s The Girl in the Book, starring Emily VanCamp & Michael Nyqvist, is an Official Selection of Film Independent’s Los Angeles Film Festival 2015!
We will keep you posted with updates and screening times. We are planning to send out rewards over the next few months!
Thank you all for your patience!
