Be seduced by a sexy season

SWEATY, steamy, sexy. The clothes will be coming off and the claws will be coming out on Revenge.

"It's being called 'sexy season three'," star Gabriel Mann said.

He dangles this clue about what viewers can expect from the next series of Revenge like a tantalizing carrot.

Playing calculating and eccentric billionaire Nolan Ross on Channel 7's hit show, Mann knows a thing or two about intrigue and suspense.

"Season two focused on more business manipulation and season three will explore different facets of revenge, emotional and sexual manipulation."

With the clothes coming off, the cast has been hitting the gym and stepping up work-out sessions with personal trainers in preparation.

But Mann is not worried about revealing his abs; in fact it's an opportunity he relishes.

"I think all actors have an element of being exhibitionists," the 41-year-old said with a laugh.

He's a fitness buff in his personal life so he's not concerned about the prospect of some nudity if the storyline calls for it.

"If it serves the story and is fun, then I'm all for it," he said.

The twists and turns for Nolan have already been quite dramatic. He's been kidnapped, held at knifepoint and is heart-broken but the biggest twist is yet to come for our favourite billionaire and Revenge sidekick.

The upcoming series finale is set to be epic, Mann teased.

"It's definitely Revenge doing what it does best and firing on all cylinders," he said during his recent Australian promotional tour.

He had read the script, been a part of it and knew how it would all play out, yet Mann still found himself on the edge of his seat watching the episode back with the rest of the cast and crew.

"Seeing it put together and scored, I knew what was coming but I was still sitting there with sweaty palms. It's a real tension builder," he said.

The cast may play characters at war with each other but off set they are firm friends, often hanging out together at dinner parties which Emily VanCamp hosts and caters.

"She is an amazing cook," Mann said.

"She's often bringing cookies and muffins to set and I'm happy to piggy back off that.

"If you don't get there within a few minutes then they are all gone."

But with the threat of nudity for next series he admits the muffins might have to go.

"They'll have to be gluten free, carb free, non-fat," he laughed.

Part one of the two-part series finale airs this week, with a series of dangerous events coming to a head in one catastrophic moment that will change everyone's lives forever.

The finale then finishes on Monday, June 22.
