Revenge’s Madeleine Stowe: “Emily’s Damage Is Known to the Audience, Victoria’s Is Not Known Yet” (VIDEO)
It’s easy to despise Revenge’s queen of the Hamptons, Victoria Grayson, but the actress who plays her, Madeleine Stowe, says that appearances can be deceiving.
As Revenge prepares to return tomorrow night, on April 18, Madeleine Stowe and Emily VanCamp (who plays Emily Thorne) sat down to talk about the similarities between their characters.

“Emily and Victoria are remarkably similar,” Madeleine said. She cited the tragedy in both characters’ pasts saying, “Behind all villainry is some real damage.”
And though Emily’s actions are often validated on the show, Madeleine doesn’t think audiences should discredit Victoria’s decisions just yet.
“Emily’s damage is known to the audience,” Madeleine said. “Victoria’s is not known yet.”
This must mean that there’s more to Victoria’s story than her painful past with David Clarke. Could Madeleine be referring to her lover, artist Dominik Wright?
Whatever Victoria’s motives are, Emily VanCamp doesn’t seem to buy it.
“I think Emily’s more justified in her behavior than Victoria,” Emily said.
