Hon­ey­moon hell in Hamp­tons

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Gaming -

of back-stab­bing and in­trigue run­ning through this sec­ond sea­son, it’s no sur­prise the episode ends with the death of a key char­ac­ter. The shock is in who falls off the perch and the man­ner of the fall.

Henry Cz­erny, who plays Con­rad, loves the mys­tery el­e­ment of the show.

‘‘ Ev­ery char­ac­ter, whether it’s a reg­u­lar or a guest star coming in, has a rea­son to feel venge­ful,’’ he says. ‘‘ It’s sewn into the fab­ric of the show.’’

But doesn’t he at times feel in­tim­i­dated hav­ing to match wits on screen with a group of such pow­er­ful women?

‘‘ Shut up, it’s fan­tas­tic,’’ he says. ‘‘ It’s what any man would want in his life.’’

His co-star Le­vieva can’t be­lieve her luck in snar­ing a role in a drama that show­cases the tal­ents of so many women.

Le­vieva, 33, who was born in Len­ingrad, went to high school in New Jersey, stud­ied eco­nom­ics at New York Univer­sity, and in 2005 fea­tured as one of the 50 Most Beau­ti­ful Peo­ple in New York by New York Mag­a­zine.

She says she could never have en­vis­aged her in­ter­est in act­ing would land her in a show like Re­venge.

‘‘ I think the big­gest sur­prise for me was coming on the show as I did, as this, like, mur­derer, strip­per,’’ she says.

‘‘ And this year, to give birth to a baby, and start a fam­ily, and come into the fold along those lines has been a big sur­prise for me. It’s been amaz­ing, but shock­ing.’’ Re­venge, Chan­nel 7, Mon­day, 8.40pm
