Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) is the newest arrival in the Hamptons. By
all appearances, she's a friendly and sophisticated "girl next door,"
but the exclusive world she's immersed herself in is tied to a dark
family history and Emily is anything but what she seems. 17 years ago,
Emily's father was framed for a horrific crime by neighbors he trusted
and sentenced to a life in prison. She never saw her father again and
spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss and betrayal. Years later,
Emily returns under an assumed identity with one endgame—REVENGE, every
social overture a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn
enemies, until their lives come crashing down around them.
Revenge stars Madeleine Stowe as Victoria Grayson, Emily VanCamp as
Emily Thorne, Gabriel Mann as Nolan Ross, Henry Czerny as Conrad
Grayson, Ashley Madekwe as Ashley Davenport, Nick Wechsler as Jack
Porter, Josh Bowman as Daniel Grayson, Christa B. Allen as Charlotte
Grayson and Connor Paolo as Declan Porter.
Revenge is created by Mike Kelley and executive produces along with
Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey. The series is produced by ABC Studios.
