Justin Hartley starred in the last season of Revenge as the son of Victoria Grayson, and he is now back on television in NBC latest hit drama – This Is Us. Many wondered about his character’s relationship with his mother. They always appeared to be a little too close on the ABC series.
Hartley has now revealed what he thought about his role on Revenge and the relationship between Patrick and Victoria. He said the following, according to TV Line:
“When I read those and talked to Madeleine about this in depth — she’s one of my favorite human beings, I love Madeleine — we were reading it and I thought, ‘Am I reading something into this?’ Then she said it separately… she goes, ‘That’s definitely a weird sort of thing.’ I mean, here’s the mother who sent her son away and then found him again. Her children at the time didn’t like her, so she’s looking for something. She hadn’t been with him his entire childhood so she only knows him as a man,” he said. “So that’s kind of a weird dynamic. I thought it was in there a little bit. Maybe [the writers] didn’t realize it was in it, and they were like ‘Oh, s–t. We better stop writing this.’ I thought it was fantastic. I was like, ‘This is creepy and excellent.’ I loved it.”
