A few weeks ago when ABC’s Revenge closed out it’s second season with some major cliffhangers one thing was promised, the death of a central character. And as fans came to find out, it was Declan Porter played by Connor Paolo who met his maker after an explosion at the Grayson Global offices.
TV Guide has asked Connor Paolo for an exit interview which he reportedly, declined. However, TVG spoke to his two main co-stars who shed light on Connor’s dismissal from the show. First, Nick Wechsler who plays Declan’s brother, Jack related, “Connor wasn’t happy. But he also took it like a champ. I think on some level he was preparing himself for it because he knew he wasn’t being used that much … the writers had a hard time finding a purpose for everyone, and he ended up not getting serviced.”
Christa B. Allen who plays Charlotte Grayson and who on-screen is pregnant with Declan’s baby shared upon learning of Connor Paolo’s exit from the series, “I couldn’t hold it together. Then Connor came in to the make-up trailer while I was still sobbing… I know he was really dissatisfied with how little he had to do, so he’s going to find another role that enables him to show his talent.”
So Revenge fans, do you think the series made the right decision in killing-off the underutilized Connor Paolo? Do you think the powers-that-be figured with that character’s demise it would help propel the story next season for Charlotte and Jack further? Weigh-in!
