What people love most about Scandal is the drama and the twists. Can people expect something similar with Deception?
That’s what I definitely like about Scandal. And Deception has that, too, but it’s a completely different story line and it has totally different characters. There are many different things happening with all of the characters on the show. With me, Laz is my love interest, he was my partner for 4 or 5 years, we hooked up and it didn’t quite work out, but there’s still feelings there, we still care about each other, so we wanna see where it’s going to go. But I also have a relationship with Julian, who is Vivian’s older brother that was in the household all those years that I lived there. So he was my first and my “Mr. Dreamboat” guy that I’ve always wanted. And nothing ever came of it until we’re older and that attraction is still very much there. So there are a lot of different things like that going on.
How would you compare this to other cop/detective dramas like Law & Order or CSI?
I don’t think it’s like any of those shows, but then I can see the hint of the majority of those shows in it. I think that’s what makes it different because CSI is how CSI is, Scandal is how Scandal is, Revenge is how Revenge is. They’re all different and I think Deception has kind of a hint of everything in it. It’s definitely going to be one of those shows that people are gonna watch week to week to watch the drama unfold.
