Madeleine Stowe: Revenge is sexy

Revenge star Madeleine Stowe has opened up about the sexy themes at the centre of the drama series.

Madeleine earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role as wealthy, manipulative Victoria Grayson in the US show about a wealthy community in the Hamptons.

Revenge focuses on a young woman, Emily Thorne played by Emily VanCamp, attempting to destroy their lives and exact vengeance on those responsible for the wrongful imprisonment of her father when she was a child.

"Is revenge sexy? I'm a slightly dark human being, so any kind of darkness has a real pull for me," Madeleine admitted.

"We're getting into things we all want to deny in ourselves, and things that are hidden and dark are really sexy things."

Meanwhile, co-star Emily has revealed she feels like a "princess" in the costumes she wears for the show.

"We get to wear some of the most beautiful clothing, it's hilarious," the 25-year-old laughed.

"I am not a big fashion-forward person, so I get to feel like a princess when I go on set, they dress me in all this beautiful clothing and then I get to throw my jeans on to go home, so it's kind of the best of both worlds, I guess."

Emily added: "I get to work with the best cast on television, I think, I just love them so much."

::Revenge is set to air on E4 later this year
