Interview with ABC’s Betrayal Star Henry Thomas #Betrayal

reblogged from RCR Article

We had a very enjoyable chat with Henry Thomas a few days ago about his role in the hot, new TV drama, Betrayal, which airs on Sunday nights on the ABC TV Network at 10 PM. A few weeks back, we spoke with one of his cast members, Stuart Townsend, and they both had the same comment about the series, that it takes time to unfold the complexity of the characters and they are pleased with how the series and fans are now reacting each week.

Another interesting part of our interview was that I felt like I knew Henry, like a son, as I watched him grow up from his unforgettable role in the Steven Spielberg classic “E.T.” which just had it’s 30th anniversary (oh, yikes, that kinda reflects on my age… but I’m only 29?!). I digress.

About Playing T.J.

We asked Henry about how he got the role on Betrayal. He tells us he initially read for another character but was called back to read for T.J. Henry said that he hadn’t thought about doing that character initially, he was trepidatious because he really didn’t want to see the character become a caricature.

What Do You Like About T. J.?

Henry told us that he likes that T.J. is struggling with himself, he’s at the controls and is clever and more capable than people give him credit for. He may make mistakes but Henry likes that his character is a “good guy” who is a loyal, good-hearted person.

Turning the Tables 

Now that we’re seeing more of T.J.’s character in the past few episodes and his interactions with Stuart Townsend’s character, Jack, and the death of his “girlfriend” Brandy, we’re seeing how he starts to rebel against his support system of family and friends.

We asked Henry an off the wall question at this point in our interview – “what if your character overcame his disability and turned the tables on his father because of Brandy’s death?” and Henry started laughing and said, yes, that would be coming up in Season 6. (spoiler alert – LOL).

T.J. and Thatcher Argue About Brandy

But seriously, Henry tells us in terms of the devastating blow of losing Brandy, there are other things like Jack and his Dad talking down to his character T.J. and excluding him from family business that has pushed him to this point. He has had enough – and its this desperation of wanting to have complete control over his life even though he knows he has a disability, he is trying to deal with life in a healthy way.

It’s a bold move for him and threatens his relationships with his family.

Do You Like How Your Character is Developing?

Henry told us that he really works hard to not make his character T.J. a “rain man” type personality or caricature and is very protective of him. He says the writers are good about working with him on making sure that his character is treated with kit gloves and respect, so if there’s anything grim that he has to be a part of, he collaborates with the writers and then puts that scene in context with T.J. so he can handle whatever they throw his way.

Best Scene

Henry tells us the best scene for him so far has been when he shows up to talk to Carsten (his dad, played by James Cromwell) with Brandy and a ring and a plan.

Act or play music…

Finally, we ask Henry – what would he prefer to do full-time? Then, we had to add the caveat that he would be paid the same (he’s a hard negotiator when interviewed) and he said “I would do music, then it could be on my own time and be whenever I wanted and I could work from home.”

Well, Henry, we hope you get to do that some day – but we hope it’s several years from now after your character T.J. has turned the tables after being healed by some new medical procedure in season six of Betrayal.

About Tonight’s Episode

“It’s just you and me now…” – Jack whisks Sara away for a romantic road trip, even as the FBI is tracking him down. As T.J. is unable to cope with Brandy’s death or find his place at Karsten Allied, his reckless behavior turns dangerous. Karsten decides to settle the score with Jack by making a deal with an unlikely ally, on “Betrayal,” TONIGHT, DECEMBER 8 (10:01-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Tomorrow is the Season Opener for the New “The Bachelor” on ABC Now You Can Love Monday’s Again!

Sean Lowe, The Bachelor

Sean Lowe, The Bachelor

Ladies, get ready for another exciting season of The Bachelor.

Most of us remember, heart-throb, Sean Lowe from the season of The Bachelorette with Emily Maynard, who passed on “the perfect man” eliminating him and shocking not only Sean but all of us watching.

Now, it’s Sean’s turn to find love and we believe he has his hands full with this group of single ladies.

We’re excited to say that we got to speak with Sean about the next edition of ABC’s hit romance reality series, “The Bachelor,” and want to recommend that our Red Carpet Report fans tune in on Monday, January 7, 2013 for the season opener… it’s one you won’t want to miss!

In case this is your first time hearing about the new Bachelor, Sean, here’s some deets: he’s 29 years old and is a successful entrepreneur who lives in Dallas. He’s very close to his family, and a true Southern gentleman. He’d also like to have a big family and is very focused on family values as demonstrated by his relationships with his parents and sister.  Sean is 6’3″ and attended Kansas State on a full football scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. He started in finance and then moved into the insurance industry but now he is the proud owner of an upscale, custom furniture business. Sean loves to camp, wakeboard, dance, be outdoors, go to concerts and have fun with his two dogs, Lola and Ellie.

First Impressions – The Bachelor

Now that you know something about him, you can size up the single ladies as they try to make their BEST first impression Sean. But before you do, check out this fun video of past Bachelor shows and some of the memorable first impressions that happened on the show.

Our Chat with Sean

Operator: Your next question comes from Stephanie Piche from Red Carpet Report.

Stephanie Piche: Hi Sean. I really enjoyed getting to know you on The Bachelorette, and we’re excited to see what happens this season. My question for you is, how many rules are you going to break this time around?

Sean Lowe: You know, I’ve never been one to really conform to rules that are set, so you’re going to see me break quite a few rules, and I did The Bachelor for a specific reason. It was to find the love of my life, and I feel like there were certain points in the season where I couldn’t follow the rules. I had to follow my heart as opposed to the rules, and so I think you’re going to see me breaking quite a few rules this season.

Stephanie Piche: OK. And, what’s the best advice your parents have given you about participating in this process?

Sean Lowe: You know, my parents know me better than anyone else, and they told me, just be yourself and stay true to who you are and then, you know, of course, stay in prayer and everything’s going to work itself out. And, they trust me and they trust my judgment and so they knew that, you know, I would follow my heart, and they knew that I’d represent the family well and ultimately make the decision that’s best for me.

Stephanie Piche: Great… And, one quick question. What’s your pet peeve, stuff that you’ve found with this whole process with these ladies?

Sean Lowe: Oh, biggest pet peeve. Like I said earlier, it’s almost inevitable for this to happen, but it always irritated me when girls would get caught up more in the drama and then they would lose focus on the real reason that they were there. And, you know, of course, I want them to focus on the relationship that we’re developing and not focus on all the other BS going on with the other women in the house.

Stephanie Piche: Of course. Thanks so much and good luck.

Sean Lowe: Thank you very much.
