Emily was interviewed recently by TVGuide’s Matt Mitovich about what we can expect from the third season of Brothers & Sisters and her character Rebecca. WARNING: There are some slight spoilers concerning upcoming storylines in the interview.
Emily VanCamp Is Ready for Some Brotherly Lovin’
by Matt Mitovich
She’s a Walker sibling no more, but that won’t rob Brothers & Sisters’ Rebecca from her fair share of drama this coming season (premiering Sunday at 10 pm/ET). Emily VanCamp gave us a peek at what’s ahead for Rebecca and Justin, a possible Everwood reunion, and the arrival of Ryan.
TVGuide.com: How is this season different than the last? What’s your take?
Emily VanCamp: It’s the usual drama that comes with the Walkers and the Harpers, but it’s different in terms of my character and her relationship with the family, which has changed drastically.
TVGuide.com: When you got de-Walkered, was a part of you, the actress, a little scared. “Whoa, is there going to be stuff for me to do?”
VanCamp: There were a couple moments of panic, but it wasn’t so much, “Am I still going to be on the show?” It was more, “Oh my goodness, I’m going to miss being a part of the family and playing that aspect of it.” But it opened up a lot of storylines that add new layers to Rebecca.
TVGuide.com: Some fans felt cheated, that Rebecca put the Walkers through such upheaval only to be a false alarm. But there are other storytelling possibilities this way.
VanCamp: Absolutely. It was very important to address the chemistry that existed between Rebecca and Justin, and obviously no one wants to go the incest route. I can understand how it would be frustrating that they embarked on this journey with this character and it fell apart in the end, but it’s more interesting this way.
052 x TV Guide’s 6th Annual Emmy After Party
More new pictures from The Pink Party have been added to the gallery. Most are MQ, but a few are HQ. I also added a brand new scan from a recent issue of TV Guide, in which Emily participated in a short Q&A with fellow Brothers & Sisters costar Dave Annable about the upcoming third season.
That’s right, folks!!! You heard right. I told you we’d be bringing you the latest on this when last mentioned, so here’s an update.
According to TV Shows on DVD, the chat held by Warner Home Video the other day ended with news that Season 2 will be released sometime in 2009. The exact date is still to be known but wow! After four years of waiting for this (Season 1 came out September 2004. I clearly remember heading to Best Buy at 10 AM to get my copy!), what’s another year? 😉
More pics from The Pink Party have been added to the gallery, including tons more HQ. That brings the total running tally up to 160 pics! I also decided to start marking HQ photos in the gallery with a simple ‘HQ’ symbol below each applicable photo. I thought this might help to more easily distinguish between the HQ and MQ photos. Not that any picture of Emily isn’t worth looking at, regardless of size. 😉
Finally, Emily attended a new event! It was certainly worth the wait though. Emily looked radiant in a beautiful black gown at The 4th Annual Pink Party, a charity gala held to raise money to fight breast cancer. I added a ton of pictures to the gallery, including 59 HQ! Enjoy! 😉
UPDATE: More pictures from the event were added to the gallery all throughout the day on Sunday, including more HQ pictures.
