Judging solely from televised depictions of the Hamptons, the beachside Long Island towns depicted in ABC's soapy new series 'Revenge,' it's a place where obscenely wealthy New Yorkers migrate every summer to sunbathe on towels made of $100 bills while sipping champagne and being fanned by their personal assistants.
After watching 'Revenge,' we're not sure that's so far off from the truth. But for every drink served there's someone doing the serving, which is where Connor Paolo comes in.
The former 'Gossip Girl' actor plays Declan Porter, a Montauk local from the wrong side of the economic divide. He's one of the many people unknowingly caught up in the titular revenge scheme of Emily Van Camp's Amanda Clark, a Hamptons native who returns to town with a new identity (Emily Thorne) and a vendetta against all the rich folks who helped take down her father's financial business.
Paolo spoke to AOL TV about the juicy 'Revenge' plotlines we can expect to see this season, being the Dan Humphrey of the Hamptons, and the romance that sparks between Declan and the daughter of one of Emily's enemies.
