Emily Thorne’s mysterious guardian, Aiden Mathis will be sticking around for quite awhile longer it seems! According to Deadline.com, Barry Sloane (Aiden) who has been playing the role on a recurring basis since the beginning of season two, has been promoted to a regular starting with Episode 14 and will appear in all episodes of the series’ back nine. Additionally, there is an option for Sloane to continue as a regular next season should the soapy drama be renewed for a third season!”
Apparently Sloane landed on the radar of ABC executives when he was cast as the male lead in the ABC/20th TV drama pilot Gotham last season. He segued to the recurring role on Revenge. His promotion to regular comes on the heels of interest in him from several pilots over the past few weeks!
So with Barry Sloane’s charismatic and strong physical presence, it will certainly be interesting to see Sloane heat up the screen protecting Emily VanCamp’s (Emily Thorne)! We thought perhaps Aiden might turn out to be the body found in Jack’s boat, The Amanda in season two’s first episode, but now with this news, we certainly can’t be sure! Are you glad that Barry was promoted to series regular? Let us know!
