We are absolutely LOVING the new series The Lying Game! It has the juiciest secrets, the most thrilling cliffhangers and an amazing cast. One of those amazing cast members is Blair Redford, who plays Sutton's secret boyfriend Ethan. Check out this revealing interview with Blair to find out more about the show, Ethan and his relationship with the twins!
Question: What about The Lying Game is going to attract viewers to it?
Blair Redford: I think it’s going to be the cliffhangers they leave every week. Every week when they turn in new scripts to us to look over, I’m just really pleased and blown away at how strong the cliffhangers are, and it makes me want to see the next script immediately.
Question: What can we expect from your character as the story unfolds?
Blair Redford: The main thing that you’ll get to experience with Ethan, the most interesting part of his story is that he’s obviously in this relationship with Sutton, which is more of a secret relationship, and then when Emma comes along it’s a very peculiar situation. It’s like when a guy gets a duplicate of his current girlfriend and she’s everything she is and maybe a little more, so it’s sort of this fantastic idea. We’ve all got problems with our girlfriends, and what if there was a twin out there of her, a clone, that was slightly better? And so you’ll see him struggle with that, because he has an allegiance to Sutton, in a way, but then he starts building feelings for Emma, too.
Question: What is it about Ethan that allows Emma to continue to her charade as Sutton?
Blair Redford: Well, I think he definitely feels so close to Sutton, first of all, and so I think the main reason he goes into this is he wants to help Sutton out, which is kind of like his girlfriend, even though it’s his secret girlfriend. I think he cares deeply for her right now, and with her twin sister Emma telling him the plan, I think he’s on board to help them reach their goal of solving this mystery of their birth and the separation and their mother. But then I also think immediately he feels a strong connection to Emma, and so whether he wants to admit it to himself or not, I think he’s glad to be along for the ride because he’s enjoying this time he gets with Emma.
