Ethan Whitehorse wouldn’t normally strike Lying Game fans as the sensitive type, however Blair Redford hints to us that emotionally charged scenes between Ethan and his brother are on their way. (Stock up on the tissues now!)
“There’s such an emphasis on his romantic escapades with the twins and that whole love triangle, which is very important to him, but I think it’s important also not to forget the ties people have with your family, especially when the stakes are raised as high as they are on our show,” Blair tells us, also noting how Ethan’s home life can help others. “Kids out there that don’t live with their parents and just have a small family like that, I think it’s important to show that side of the story, too. [Ethan and Dan] are really all each other has.”
In fact, Blair confides to us that his most memorable parts of filming this season were those times he spent with his on-screen sibling. “As far as the story goes, I enjoyed a lot of the stuff that I got to shoot with Tyler Christopher, who plays my brother. That’s some of the best opportunities I think Ethan has had to kind of show some range and his personality toward the end of this ten [episodes] that we just shot…some of the work that the brothers had together I think was some of my favorite stuff.”
What do you think will bring Ethan and Dan so close this season?
