Revenge’s Christa Allen and Nick Wechsler React to Declan’s Death: “We’re Bummed”
Not amount of butter-soaked lobster will help us get over the death of Declan Porter in the Revenge Season 2 finale. And we aren’t the only ones coming to terms with the fact that Montauk’s favorite jewelry thief won’t be back in Season 3.
E! News recently spoke with actors Nick Wechsler and Christa Allen, who play Declan’s brother and baby mama respectively, and they admitted that the loss remains painful.
"I'm still sad! He's a really good friend of mine in life and we were partners on the show. Anything we did, we did together, so it was a big blow," Christa said. "But these are the things that have to happen, I guess. I don't know why they have to happen! I still don't understand."
With a baby on the way and no one to father her child, Charlotte’s about to be in a world of hurt at the start of the third season.
"Initially [the pregnancy] would be something that would be really exciting, but now her baby daddy is dead," Christa said. "I think the biggest point with her pregnancy is going to be how other characters take it; how Victoria deals with it and I hope it's in a positive way because Victoria doesn't have a good track record of dealing with children, and then I don't know how it's going to affect Charlotte and Emily's relationship. It's going to be a weird dynamic, but I think there's going to be a lot going on there."
Nick Wechsler spent his last scene with Connor Paolo (Declan) on the phone. Towards the end of the Season 2 finale, Nolan hands Jack a recording of Declan’s final words to him. Fortunately, Connor’s end on the show doesn’t mean his friendships with the cast have to end.
"I was texting with him earlier today,” Nick said. “We're going to hang, like we've hung out a few times since. It's awful. I miss him and I'm going to miss him ... it's not really going to hit until we're working and he's not there. We're all bummed."
