Revenge favorite, Gabriel Mann (Nolan Ross) is getting to play both sides of the fence, sort of speak, these days on the scandalous primetime ABC soap! Currently, Nolan has been involved with the beautiful Padma Lahari, but coming this Thanksgiving, former Guiding Light star, E. J. Bonilla shows up in a flashback as Marco, who looks to be the ex of Nolan! Then, on the following Sunday episode, Marco comes back in the present! So what is up with the tech genius? Is he truly bisexual? In a conversation with the gaystarnews.com, Gabriel revealed that he relishes being one of television’s only bisexual characters! Here are a few excerpts:
Gabriel on playing a bisexual character: “I kind of thought that was really interesting as a character because we’ve had some really great, interesting gay characters on television, we’ve certainly had a hundred, million years of everybody being straight on TV too. I thought that bisexuals weren’t well represented. So as we were kind of figuring out who this guy was, I felt like that would something really interesting to play with, certainly different than some of what we’ve seen on television.”
Gabriel on if swinging both ways is for Nolan’s own ulterior motives: “It leaves all doors open, even beyond the sexuality in terms of the genesis of that whole character, my whole feeling about it was that I wanted to leave everything open,’ he adds. ‘Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy? Is he sleeping with guys? Is he sleeping with girls? Are his intentions true? Is he really just the ultimate two-face?’
Gabriel on Nolan’s last love affair which ended up with the character of Tyler being killed-off: ‘I don’t know that Nolan misses Tyler but Gabe misses acting with Ashton Holmes. He was just so much fun to work with and the character he created for the show combined with the character that I created for the show were just a match made in hell and that’s drama gold sometimes. I miss that kind of tension that we had. Some of those were some of my favorite scenes from last year.”
So what do you think of having Nolan being bisexual on Revenge? Do you think he will sleep with who ever suits him at that time? Do you think there’s more to the story? Let us know your thoughts!
