Revenge actors dating: ‘Revenge’ Stars Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman Are Married – The Hollywood Reporter


‘Revenge’ Stars Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman Are Married – The Hollywood Reporter

First comes co-starring in a TV show, then comes marriage. 

Revenge star Emily VanCamp, 32, revealed on Instagram she tied the knot to her former co-star Josh Bowman, 30, over the weekend in the Bahamas. 

The actress posted a couple of black-and-white photos of her and Bowman in their wedding attire on her account. The first caption simply revealed the date of the ceremony, “12.15.18,’ she wrote.

In her second caption VanCamp thanked her guests for attending her wedding. “Thank you to all of our friends and family who made their way to celebrate with us! We are eternally grateful,” she said, while also thanking her dress designer. “And to @lelarose and your incredible team for creating my dream dress… Thank you times a million. ” 

The couple first began dating in 2012, while they were co-starring on the ABC drama.

VanCamp and Bowman became engaged in May 2017 with the actress posting a cute picture of her covering her face with her hands showing off her diamond ring on her Instagram.

“We got engaged and then both hit the ground running with work,” she revealed to People that she and Bowman were in no rush to get married, also saying, “Once I’m done doing The Resident I want to have some good solid family time.” 

The newlyweds are keeping busy with VanCamp currently starring on the Fox medical drama The Resident as nurse practitioner Nicolette “Nic” Nevin. As for Bowman, he recently appeared in an episode of Doctor Who and will star in the made-for-TV movie Escaping the Madhouse: The Nellie Bly Story, premiering in 2019.  

This is the first marriage for both stars.

Emily VanCamp, Josh Bowman’s Relationship Timeline

When you know, you know! Emily VanCamp has never shied away from finding love on set. While past romances with her former costars Chris Pratt and Dave Annable didn’t work out, she eventually found The One in Josh Bowman.

VanCamp and Bowman met in 2011 on the set of Revenge. On the ABC drama, the duo played love interests Emily Thorne and Daniel Grayson, who ultimately wed during the show’s third season.

Art appeared to imitate life as a romance blossomed between the pair off screen. Us Weekly broke the news of their relationship in January 2012, and they got engaged in May 2017.

The Brothers & Sisters alum said that Bowman did a “good” job with his proposal. “It was in a forest. We were in nature on a hike kind of doing what we do, it was very, sort of, us,” she told Entertainment Tonight shortly after their engagement. “So yeah, it was great, beautiful.”

VanCamp and Bowman tied the knot at Harbour Island in the Bahamas in December 2018.

While VanCamp has shared sweet photos of the couple across her Instagram page, the duo have largely remained relatively private. However, the Resident star has gushed about how comfortable she feels around her spouse.

“I’m at my most confident when I’m in nature and I don’t have to dress up. When I take off my makeup, that’s my boyfriend’s favorite,” she said in the January/February 2013 issue of Women’s Health. “And that, to me, is a symbol of a great guy — someone who doesn’t care about all that [glamorous] stuff.”

A few years before their winter nuptials, the Everwood alum revealed that she could see the duo starting a family together someday. “Yes, absolutely, especially when your sisters are having babies you just want to jump on the bandwagon. But I’m just happy being an auntie right now,” she said on The Meredith Vieira Show in September 2014. “I’m really busy and I feel like I kind of want to be the kind of mom I want to be.”

In Honor of “Revenge,” A Brief History of TV’s Off-Screen Hookups | by The Awl | The Awl

by Sara Morrison

Tonight, “Revenge” returns from its (too-long) hiatus with a crop of new episodes, sure to be full of awesomeness. But will they also be full of awkwardness? You see, Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman, who play engaged couple Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke (she has two names, it’s complicated) and Daniel Grayson, are together off-screen as well. If a recent photo of the couple is anything to go by, their real-life relationship may have been concluded by the time tonight’s new episode starts.

You don’t have to be a body language expert to think that Bowman, his arms folded protectively over his chest, his eyes dead, horrified or distracted, is not as into this whole thing as VanCamp, who looms over him, lips mashed against his face, sucking with desperate determination. This presents a potential problem for viewers! We now all know they’re dating. If they break up, we’ll know that, too. And then we’ll all have to watch their characters in romantic scenes together and think about how awkward that must have been to film. If they aren’t very good at acting and/or their breakup is especially acrimonious, that awkwardness will be obvious. And that’s just unpleasant to watch. We do not want to see real-life problems on our guilty pleasure fun show.

Then again, that could just be a terrible photo, taken at a weird moment. Perhaps things are just fine between VanCamp and Bowman and dating your co-star is a really terrific idea with no foreseeable downside. Perhaps history can be our judge: let’s take a look at on/off-screen couples of TV shows past, from Ozzie and Harriet to Billy and Allison; from Sydney and Vaughn to Dexter and Debra, to see just how well that worked out for everyone.

The 50s

In the beginning, there were old married people.

As it happens, the on/off-screen relationship existed before screens did. In the 40s, married couple Ozzie and Harriet had their own radio sitcom, “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” in which they played a married couple named Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. Their real-life sons David and Ricky joined the cast a few years in, and the show moved to television in 1952. It stayed on the air for the next 14 years, as a weird pseudo-proto-reality show based on the family’s life. When David and Ricky got married in real life, their wives joined them on the show. So we have plenty of weird on/off screen relationships here.

Ozzie and Harriet were a couple before the show, and they stayed together after it was cancelled in 1966. Their marriage was probably never as happy as their fictional counterparts’ (nothing would be, because 50s TV shows loved to portray perfect families and make the rest of us feel inferior), but the real-life version of the couple actually got to, you know, have sex and sleep in the same bed, so I’d call it even. Both sons divorced their co-star-wives, but only after the series was cancelled, thus depriving us of the chance to see what would happen to the annoyingly perfect fake Nelson family if their real counterparts were to break up. In this case, on/off-screen coupledom was a success…

… except for the fact that Ozzie and Harriet’s son Ricky and his co-star-wife had twin sons named Gunnar and Matthew — best known to us as the early 90s hair band Nelson. Nelson sucks, and should serve as a warning to any TV people considering reproducing with an on/off-screen partner.

Real-life couples playing fictional couples were apparently big in the 50s, so we also had “I Love Lucy,” which starred real-life married couple Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo. Their fictional counterparts certainly had their arguments, but they always made up by the end of the episode. In real life, Ball filed for divorce the day after they filmed the series finale (at which point the show had evolved into weirdness that was the hour-long “Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour” anyway) — which was also Arnaz’s birthday. Ouch! That made the papers, obviously, so by the time the final episode aired, the viewing audience knew the happy fictional couple on TV was being played by a miserable real-life one. Ball never made that mistake again. Though she married after Arnaz — and stayed with her second husband until her death — in all three sitcoms she starred in after “I Love Lucy,” her character was a widow.

After that, there’s a long dry spell for on/off-screen couples. Either we didn’t know they were hooking up in real life until long after the shows aired, or the actors on most of the shows were too busy doing drugs to hook up, or the male leads were secretly gay, or my knowledge of behind-the-scenes gossip decades before I was born just isn’t very good. But by the 80s, the age of hungry tabloid journalism made it difficult for stars to keep their romantic lives private.

The 80s

“Growing Pains”: Towards the end of the show’s run, Kirk Cameron became a born-again Christian. His character, Mike Seaver, started dating some girl named Kate, played by Chelsea Noble, who was also big into Christianity. It was a match made in their unshakable belief in Heaven, and the actors were married the summer before the show’s final season. Mike and Kate got engaged in the series finale. The Camerons are still married today, so that could be considered an on/off-camera success in terms of relationship longevity, but Kirk Cameron is so annoying about it, refusing to kiss anyone on-camera except his wife, thus forcing anyone who wants to work with him (which, these days, is relegated to a few fundamentalist Christian filmmakers) to either cast her as his love interest or have her body double in kissing scenes with anyone other than his wife. So, that’s a pain. Also, you’d think that anyone who was that happily in love would be open to letting other people find that same happiness with and make those same commitments to their partners, regardless of gender. Cameron most certainly isn’t, and we all have to know about it every time he pops up on that Piers Morgan show or wherever, so I’m calling that another fail.

“Night Court”: To the best of my knowledge, the cast did not date each other. But I love this show and it doesn’t get nearly enough credit or attention, so I thought I’d throw it in here anyway. I still find it hard to believe that anyone could resist the charms of Markie Post and Markie Post’s Mullet behind the scenes.

The 90s

With the success of “Beverly Hills, 90210,” a new wave of TV shows starring hot young people with gigantic hair and raging hormones burst forth, providing us with plenty of fodder. The “90210” spin-off, “Melrose Place,” had its share of bad acting and ridiculous storylines, which usually made it that much more awesome. But not always. Andrew Shue, a.k.a. Elizabeth Shue’s less-talented sibling, played Billy Campbell, who started a relationship with Allison Parker, played by Courtney Thorne-Smith, who was at least a better actor than Shue (it’s impossible to be worse). Shue and Thorne-Smith dated in real life during the show’s first season. Then they broke up, but Billy and Allison were still together. Uh oh. The viewers at home knew all of this at the time, so their scenes as a fake couple had that extra awkward layer of tension, made all the more obvious because Shue was never a good enough actor to close his mouth during a scene, let alone hug his now-ex-girlfriend convincingly. Thorne-Smith has commented on the weirdness of it all in interviews since, but considering she would go on to spend eight seasons playing Jim Belushi’s romantic interest, she really has no right to complain about her “Melrose” days. Cupid’s arrow struck the “Melrose” set several times: Laura Leighton (Sydney) and mega-hunk of the era Grant Show (Jake) dated for a longer time than their characters ever did. Leighton left the show and ended up with Doug Savant, who played one character Sydney would never have an on-screen relationship with: Matt, who was gay. They’re still married. And Heather “Special Guest Star” Locklear and Jack Wagner’s characters got married, but the actors were just friends until years after the cancellation of “Melrose. ” They started dating in 2007 and got engaged last year, but it was called off a few months later.

The 00s

“Alias”: Jennifer Garner’s history of dating her co-stars went back to at least “Felicity,” where she fell in love with Scott Foley. They married and things seemed great until disaster struck and Garner got a role on another TV show with another male co-star: Michael Vartan. Both Garner and Foley have denied that Garner cheated on her husband, but the fact remains that they separated and Garner and Vartan were soon seen together. Their characters, Sydney Bristow and Michael Vaughn, also became romantically involved. But then Garner and Vartan broke up and Garner hooked up with yet another co-star (Ben Affleck, who she met while filming “Daredevil”), who she went on to marry — all this while “Alias” was still in production. It’s safe to say things were probably a bit tense on the set between Garner and Vartan after that, and suddenly there was a lot less Vaughn around, culminating in the fifth and final season — during most of which Vaughn was “dead.

“One Tree Hill”: Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush met on the set of “One Tree Hill,” where their characters also dated. Their real-life romance probably helped that storyline along, especially when Murray and Bush got married after two years together. But then they got divorced, and their show was still on. And Murray suddenly got engaged to some high-school girl who was an extra on the show and Bush started dating another co-star, James Lafferty, and it kind of made everything tough to watch. Fortunately, Murray soon left the show and faded into relative obscurity and Bush found love with yet another co-star, Austin Nichols. Their characters got married on the show; in real life, Bush and Nichols broke up around the time the series stopped filming. Things worked out only slightly better for cast members of the other, better teen drama that premiered the same year: On “The OC,” Adam Brody and Rachel Bilson stayed together from the first season, when both they and their characters started dating, until their real-life break up just before the series finale (in which their characters married), leaving the audience with little on-screen evidence of any post-break-up tension.

“House”: When Jennifer Morrison and Jesse Spencer were revealed to be dating behind the scenes, it was cute. Then the characters they portrayed, Drs. Cameron and Chase, had this weird drugged-out hook-up that evolved into a friends-with-benefits relationship — which would have been fine except for the fact that we never got the sense Chase and Cameron were friends in the first place. Perhaps that storyline was influenced by Morrison and Spencer’s relationship, which blossomed into an engagement around this time. All was well until Season Four, when the actors apparently peed on all the writers’ Corn Flakes, and all of a sudden their characters were given only a few lines of dialogue or so each week. As their characters’ relationship became serious, their real-life one ended. The couple never got married in real life, and even while their characters had almost nothing to do on the show, the writers who obviously hated them made their characters get married after the real-life relationship was over. That must have been a fun scene for everyone involved to film and isn’t weird to watch as an informed viewer at all. By the way, after all of that? They kicked Jennifer Morrison off the show and had Chase and Cameron break up for no good reason. They had one more awkward sex scene before Cameron left forever, divorce papers in hand. I have a feeling Morrison was happy to be out of there.


“Dexter”: This has to be the most awkward of all on/off-screen hook-ups. First, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter played siblings. Yes, Dexter and Debra Morgan aren’t blood relatives, but they grew up together and that’s basically the same thing as far as I’m concerned. In real life, they aren’t biologically or adoptively related, so they were free to carry on. It made things a little weird watching them pretend to be siblings while knowing they probably had sex a half hour before that scene was shot, and my mother and I liked refer to Carpenter as Hall’s “sister-wife” after they eloped on New Year’s Eve 2008. But it wasn’t that bad, and they seemed happy enough — until they weren’t. Less than two years after their wedding, Carpenter filed for divorce. People wondered how this would affect the show, guessing Carpenter would have to be killed off. She wasn’t. Instead, the writers found a way to make things even more awkward by having Debra confess in the sixth season finale that she had romantic feelings for her own brother. Coming up next season: no less than eight levels of awkward right there, I’d say.

Every other show Emily VanCamp has starred in: When she was on “Everwood,” she dated Chris Pratt, who played her brother. A few years later, she dated her “Brothers & Sisters” co-star David Annable, who played her half-brother. Their off-screen romance created so much on-screen chemistry that the writers decided to go with it and made VanCamp’s character not related to Annable’s after all, paving the way for the characters to marry. By that time, though, VanCamp and Annable had broken up. Their chemistry died, and VanCamp was written out of the series. Oops.

All in all, I think it’s pretty safe to say that anyone looking to get involved with a co-star is going to regret it one way or the other. The viewing audience will, too, suffering through awkward post-break-up sex scenes, on-screen sibling interactions full of creepy sexual tension, grandchildren who make terrible music, and homophobic born-again Christians (admittedly, I’m still not sure if that one is the fault of “Growing Pains”). And VanCamp, currently at least 0-for-2 when it comes to dating co-stars, should really know better at this point. Or perhaps this is her PR strategy playbook routine, at this point?

But maybe those crazy kids will make it work, I’ll be proven wrong, and “Revenge” will stay awesome. Or, more likely in light of the historical evidence, Josh Bowman is one bad public make-out photo away from being killed off.

Revenge Cast Today — See Emily VanCamp, Josh Bowman, and More Now!

It’s hard to believe it has been nearly seven years since the premiere of Revenge. Viewers were introduced to Emily Thorne (aka Amanda Clarke) in 2011 — and followed along as she plotted her vengeance against the Grayson family.

Played to perfection by Emily VanCamp, the blonde beauty was our modern day Count of Monte Cristo, making sure the Hamptons socialites responsible for framing her father got what they deserved. Over the course of four seasons, Emily clears her father’s name, reclaims her real identity, and finally gets her happily ever after in the series finale.

It turns out, Emily (VanCamp) also got her happily ever after thanks to the ABC drama. She announced her engagement to Josh Bowman, who played Daniel Grayson, on the series last year. However, the couple makes sure to keep their professional and personal lives separate. “Josh and I keep it all very separate. I barely talk about him in interviews, to be honest,” she told Elle Canada. “It’s just really funny in the moments when we’re playing these absolutely absurd things. I call him ‘wife-beater Daniel.’ It’s hard for my family to watch — it’s also hard for them to see me in that light. But we’re actors. None of that lives in any of us. Thank God!”

As for her archnemesis, Victoria Grayson — played by Madeleine Stowe — her storyline did not come to an end as she had hoped. However, it sure was fun to watch. “I think the audience believed in Amanda’s fight so much that they couldn’t see Victoria as anything other than a villain. But this woman went through really terrible things,” Madeleine told People. “She had horrible parenting and was violated repeatedly. Those violations of her youth turned to madness where she would see people and anything that would threaten her children’s well-being had to be vanquished.”

Madeleine continued, “I loved that she was a tenacious mother. I loved her attachment to her son. She was just really tough and cool. I kind of admire her. Other people don’t, but I do.” TBH, we had a soft spot for Victoria, too!

An Actor’s Revenge: Kon Ichikawa’s phenomenal kabuki thriller | Stage

We sometimes talk of scene-stealers in the theatre. What might acting and thieving have in common? Performers demand attention while pickpockets evade it, but to excel at both you need to closely study human behaviour. In his 1962 movie An Actor’s Revenge, the director Kon Ichikawa presents the worlds of a touring kabuki theatre company and a group of thieves side by side. His masterstroke is casting Kazuo Hasegawa – in his 300th film appearance – in a dual role as both the troupe’s lead actor and a Robin Hood-style robber. As the former, he coolly steals the heart of an admirer in the audience.

In the opening scene, criminals are operating in the auditorium. They pluck riches from the spectators, while arguing about whether to stay until the end of the show. “This play’s too slow for me,” moans one thief. You couldn’t level that criticism at Ichikawa’s movie, one of cinema’s finest studies of theatre. It is a remake of a 1935 film with the same name, directed by Teinosuke Kinugasa, in which Hasegawa (a kabuki actor turned box-office film star) had played the same roles.

Ichikawa’s version grips the audience immediately. In Edo (modern-day Tokyo), the kabuki company is presenting an elegant production in which snow falls on a stage lined with candles. Yukinojo (Hasegawa) is an acclaimed onnagata, a male actor who performs female roles. We hear the internal monologue of Yukinojo addressing his late father as, in the audience, he spies a magistrate and a merchant responsible for his parents’ death 20 years earlier. He has come to Edo for vengeance.

Yukinojo uses his performance, on-stage and off, to win the affection of the magistrate’s daughter (Ayako Wakao). He is mocked by others as weak and effeminate – both for being an actor and an onnagata – but uses this perception to his advantage in wreaking revenge. He also makes use of his vast knowledge of kabuki stagecraft, donning makeup and a fright wig to assume the guise of his father’s ghost when confronting one of the men. (The film’s Japanese title, Yukinojo Henge, describes him as a phantom and this captures something of its phantasmagorical style.) Later, he acts out his mother’s death as a shadow play to torment another of his enemies. One of the thieves mocks Yukinojo as being “neither man nor woman”; his features share a similarity with both parents, we are told, so it is as if he embodies each on their personal quests for retribution.

This is a dynamic, highly stylish thriller told with a striking palette but it forms a neat companion piece to a much more meditative, perhaps better-known film about another kabuki troupe, Yasujirō Ozu’s Floating Weeds, which was made three years earlier and shares two of the film’s supporting actors (Ganjirō Nakamura and Ayako Wakao). In both films, an actor arrives in town with family business on his mind. For Ozu’s hero, Komajuro, it is a reunion with a son who does not know his father’s identity. In Floating Weeds (itself a remake of an earlier film), the troupe’s production is a flop – some nights the actors outnumber the audience – and the company is rife with resentments. But Komajuro appreciates his role as the head of this dysfunctional theatrical family and the late scene in which the troupe disbands to pursue alternative careers is tinged with sadness. In Ichikawa’s film, the orphaned Yukinojo has been virtually adopted by a theatre family; the company’s actor-manager has become a father figure to him.

The troupe in An Actor’s Revenge may be more celebrated than in Ozu’s film, but Ichikawa also acknowledges the ever-precarious living of performers who are never quite sure what is round the corner. Instability is even inherent in the film’s style, which never fixes on one genre. Ichikawa frames some scenes tightly by using the lines of windows and doorways yet others seem to exist almost as if on an endless stage, with the characters surrounded by floating mist or darkness. The lighting techniques are often boldly theatrical and even in the scenes outside the theatre, it is common for conversations to be watched by an “audience” of onlooking characters.

The fluid, dreamlike nature of the narrative is mirrored in the delicate performance by Hasegawa as Yukinojo, which contrasts with his earthy, comical turn as the robber Yamitaro. Yukinojo is a figure as ethereal as theatre itself: in the unforgettable final scene he drifts away from his life on stage, leaving his audiences with the fading memories they have taken from his performances.

The Most Anticipated Korean Dramas of 2021

Every few years, a particularly swoon-worthy Korean drama turns a wave of international viewers into avid fans of the genre. Notable examples include Full House in 2004, Boys Over Flowers in 2009, The Heirs in 2013. In 2020, both Crash Landing on You and Itaewon Class hooked the attention of large audiences at the start of the year, and the interest in K-dramas only grew as the months wore on. Viewing for the genre on Netflix nearly tripled in the U.S. last year, and the streaming giant recently announced that its investment in Korean content between 2015 and 2020 will total $700 million and include leasing nine stages across two production facilities in Korea. Beyond Netflix, Korean networks continue to produce series which are regularly distributed globally through platforms including the American streaming service Rakuten Viki, Chinese video site iQIYI and Hong-Kong based provider Viu.

A bountiful slate of new series is on the horizon for 2021. They feature actors we have missed on our screens and newcomers who are taking on lead roles for the first time (including, to the great anticipation of many, Jisoo from K-pop phenom BLACKPINK). Many of these shows are helmed by directors and writers who have produced some of the hottest Korean dramas to date, while others are adapted from webtoons that have attracted a significant audience online.

Most of the series do not have confirmed launch dates but are planned for release in 2021. Some of the shows will debut on Korean networks like tvN and JTBC, with no confirmed plans for international distribution at the moment. This could change, though, as a growing number of global fans call for Korean dramas to be made available in their countries.

Here, the most anticipated K-dramas of 2021.

River Where the Moon Rises

Release date: Feb. 15

Network: KBS2; will be available on Rakuten Viki

Kim So-Hyun (Love Alarm, The Tale of Nokdu) and Ji Soo (When I Was Most Beautiful, My First First Love) star in this reimagining of the folktale about Princess Pyeonggang and On Dal. Pyeonggang (Kim) is resolute in her goal: to become the first female ruler to lead the Korean kingdom of Goguryeo. Her aspirations are tested when she meets On Dal (Ji Soo), whose love for Pyeonggang drives him to protect her above all else. In this period drama that promises plenty of action and romance, the versatile Kang Ha-Neul (When the Camellia Blooms, Midnight Runners) also plays a role as On Dal’s father and a general of Goguryeo.

Sisyphus: The Myth

Release date: Feb. 17

Network: JTBC; will be available on Netflix on the same date with new episodes released every Wednesday and Thursday

Launched in 2011, JTBC has released some of the most beloved Korean dramas of the last decade—including 2020 favorites Itaewon Class and The World of the Married. Branded as JTBC’s “10th Anniversary Special Drama,” Sisyphus: The Myth is directed by Jin Hyuk of The Legend of the Blue Sea and City Hunter fame and features seasoned actors Cho Seung-Woo and Park Shin-Hye. In the mystery-fantasy, Cho plays genius coder Han Tae-Sul, who meets Park’s Kang Seo-Hae—an elite fighter from the future who travels back in time to save him. Both Cho and Park recently starred in thrilling dramas—Cho in the crime series Stranger and Park in the Zombie film #Alive. Based on the premise, it seems like Sisyphus: The Myth will be an exhilarating ride, too.


Release Date: Feb. 20

Network: tvN; will be available on Netflix on the same date with new episodes released every Saturday and Sunday

After a betrayal, lawyer Vincenzo Cassano, who works as a mafia consigliere, flees from Italy to South Korea. He is on a mission to find something hidden, and along the way joins forces with cutthroat attorney Hong Cha-Young. Vincenzo boasts an impressive cast, with Song Joong-Ki (Arthdal Chronicles, Descendants of the Sun), Jeon Yeo-Bin (Be Melodramatic, After My Death) and boy band 2PM’s Taecyeon (The Game: Towards Zero, Save Me) in the lead roles. Yoo Jae-Myung and Yang Kyung-Won, who had standout performances in last year’s Itaewon Class and Crash Landing on You, respectively, also star in this series.


Release Date: TBA

Network: JTBC

Snowdrop is already one of the most-talked-about series, in no small part because it features Jisoo from BLACKPINK in her first lead role—alongside star actor Jung Hae-In (One Spring Night, Something in the Rain). But the series is also highly anticipated because of the creative forces behind it, director Jo Hyun-Tak and writer Yoo Hyun-Mi, whose last collaboration Sky Castle is the second-highest-rated drama in Korean cable history. Actors Kim Hye-Yoon and Yoon Se-Ah from Sky Castle join the cast as well. Snowdrop begins as Im Soo-Ho (Jung), covered in blood, darts into the female dorm at a university on a day in 1987. Against the backdrop of political upheaval, Eun Young-Cho (Jisoo) hides the disheveled student and the pair’s story unfolds.

90,000 10 actors who were replaced right during filming – Popcorn

Casting actors for a role is a serious process, the success or failure of the film depends on the correct decision. Sometimes a mistake with a choice becomes obvious when the filming process is already underway. We do not know how many such mistakes were not corrected so as not to lose money on compensations and penalties, but there are cases when actors were mercilessly fired right in the process of work and replaced with others.

Kevin Spacey

When a sexual harassment scandal erupted in Hollywood, the fire from Harvey Weinstein quickly spread to Kevin Spacey, who was accused of molesting an underage boy and several other young people.Even before the court’s decision, society branded the actor with shame, he was immediately kicked out of the series “House of Cards”, and soon from the almost ready-to-run film “All the Money in the World.” Director Ridley Scott, in order to be in time for the premiere, in an emergency mode re-shot all the scenes of Spacey, inviting Christopher Plummer to take his place.

Robert Downey Jr.

Robert Downey Jr. spent several days on the set of the fantastic thriller Gravity, but in the end his services were turned down.“Robert is a fantastic actor, especially if you let him breathe freely on the set, improvise, change something. When we clarified all the technological aspects of “Gravity”, it became clear that this would be a big obstacle to his style of play, “- said Cuarón. So the role went to George Clooney.

Megan Fox

While filming Transformers 3: The Dark Side of the Moon, sexy Megan Fox and action director Michael Bay got into a serious fight.The actress called him “Hitler and Napoleon in the director’s chair,” and he, in turn, called her mediocrity. So the place of Megan was taken by the leggy Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Cal O’Neill

In fact, poor Cal O’Neill was kicked out of The Oil only because director Paul Thomas Anderson got the inspiration. The film was already being shot with might and main, but then Anderson saw the picture “The Ballad of Jack and Rose” and was impressed by the work of Paul Dano.He had only four days to prepare for a new role.

Natalie Portman

In the film “Romeo + Juliet”, the heroine was selected for Leonardo DiCaprio and first settled on the candidacy of Natalie Portman. But in the process of filming Natalie had to be abandoned – she was much shorter than Romeo, and next to the 14-year-old girl, the 21-year-old actor looked too adult. Portman later said: “I was told it looked like Leonardo was seducing me in the kissing scene.I was very upset, but I didn’t want to be in a movie for which I am not suitable. ”

Eric Stolz

Eric Stolz worked for five whole weeks, who was approved for the role of Marty McFly in the project “Back to the Future”. And everything seems to be fine, but, according to director Robert Zemeckis, Stolz “lacked some detail that would make the role really funny and memorable”. So Michael J.Fox, and producer Steven Spielberg immediately approved the replacement.

Stuart Townsend

In just four days of filming, Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson realized that Stuart Townsend, who had been cast to play Aragorn, was too young for the role. Viggo Mortensen was called instead. For three years, Viggo became a superstar.

Christian Bale

Now, probably, no producer would dare to act so ugly with Christian Bale, as the creators of “American Psycho” did in 2000.The little-known actor was already approved for the role when the famous Leonardo DiCaprio became interested in her. Bale was fired in one fell swoop, along with director Mary Harron, who tried to defend him. They returned them only due to the fact that DiCaprio changed his mind. Leonardo was convinced that such a role would ruin the image.

Samantha Morton

The charming operating system that the protagonist of the movie “She” falls in love with was originally given to Samantha Morton.The actress was present on the set with Joaquin Phoenix and helped him. However, when it came time for editing, director Spike Jones decided that Samantha’s voice was not suitable and invited Scarlett Johansson to voice acting.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling was approved for the role of his father in The Lovely Bones and prepared very diligently for filming. He gained 27 kilograms and grew a small beard to look older.But when he appeared on the set in all this splendor, director Peter Jackson simply fired him, because he saw this hero more slender, and not with chubby cheerful cheeks. The amateur performances cost Gosling his job. Mark Wahlberg was taken in his place.
