SPOT­LIGHT ON STONE

Herald Sun - Switched On - - On The Couch -

FILM­ING of sea­son two of Re­venge be­gan on July 16, but star Gabriel Mann claims to know next to noth­ing about what’s hap­pen­ing on the show. Given the se­crecy around the se­ries and its plot­lines, he may well be telling the truth. He is sto­ically in char­ac­ter when it’s put to him that the glit­ter­ing new ad­di­tion to the cast is Sharon Stone, who had been ap­proached way back for the show’s pi­lot. ‘‘Madeleine Stowe ver­sus Sharon Stone, can you imag­ine? Youmight have quite a scoop there,’’ he says. This sounds tan­ta­lis­ingly like con­fir­ma­tion un­til he says he’s heard ‘‘a few names’’ touted. None of which he re­veals. Mean­while, Stone last week claimed she al­most died from a brain aneurism in 2001. In the midst of the drama, Stone, 54, saw ‘‘the white light’’ and peo­ple who had al­ready passed away. ‘‘They thought I had a rup­tured ves­sel that had bled it­self out,’’ she said. ‘‘Dur­ing the next op­er­a­tion, they found an artery that was pump­ing blood into my brain. They put in plat­inum to shut it off. I was close to death at one point and saw the white light that peo­ple claim they see.’’
