ASSIGNMENT X got a chance to catch up recently with Josh Bowman, who portrays Daniel Grayson on ABC’s REVENGE which airs its Season 1 finale tonight. I was very surprised to discover that he was British, and was born in Berkshire, England. He does such a great job sounding American that if you didn’t know before, you do now. He was more then happy to discuss the show and his upcoming movie SO UNDERCOVER with Miley Cyrus.

ASSIGNMENT X: Talk about your character Daniel Grayson?

JOSH BOWMAN: Daniel is sort of a caged bird. He’s an American guy who’s been brought up in this very wealthy environment and he really doesn’t want to be a part of it. He wants to be something different. He does want to go against the grain, not just because he does not want to be like his mother (Madeleine Stowe) and father (Henry Czerny), but also because he wants to find himself. He wants to find his own beat to his drum. He doesn’t want to have a life mapped out for him, which is what his mother is doing for him. She trying to map out a career and so is his father. She wants to pick the right woman and his father wants him to pick the right career and join the company.

AX: Yeah, your father seems to be not a nice person.

BOWMAN: Yes, he can be. I’m loving playing the character. He started off very sweet and charming and now he’s becoming more grounded and manly I think, masculine which is what I wanted. I’m enjoying it.

AX: Well Tyler [Ashton Holmes] sure fooled you!

BOWMAN: I did get fooled stupidly and I wish I didn’t, but that was what the writers wrote. Now I guess I’m more aware. I guess what I’m going through throughout the scripts is a coming of age. I’m aging and I’m becoming more mature.

AX: How do you feel about Gabriel [Mann’s] character Nolan on the show?

BOWMAN: I would love to do scenes with Gabriel as I think he is super talented and I love him as Gabriel. And his character Nolan is fantastic, but Gabriel is a fantastic man he has a very loving sense of a human being and I’m learning a lot from him as an actor. I would love to do scenes with him, but we have not been written together.

AX: Really, not at all?

BOWMAN: No it’s mainly me and Madeleine [Stowe] or me and Emily [Emily Van Camp].  And I’ve had scenes with Nick [Wechsler] and one scene with Ashley Madekwe. I’ve never actually had one scene with my sister [Christa B. Allen], which is bizarre. My own sister!

AX: What do you want to see happen with your character? You’re now working with your dad correct?

BOWMAN: I think what they are hinting towards should I survive the shooting, if it is or isn’t me. If I continue working on REVENGE then there’s a possibility they are thinking about making me a figurehead of the company. Someone who is maybe going to take control of Grayson Global. (We do know that it was not Daniel who was shot, it was Tyler).

AX: So you really like this character?

BOWMAN: On paper he’s not three-dimensional, as Nolan or Victoria Grayson, they are very complex characters. Daniel is what you see is what you get, but I’m trying to make him more interesting. I want people to want to watch me on TV. I want people to take an interest and invest in my character. I want to see him be more grounded. I want to see him more ballsy and more confident. People want to see a leading man and they want to see a strong personality.

AX: What did you do before REVENGE?

BOWMAN: I have a movie coming out with Miley Cyrus and Jeremy Piven in early spring called SO UNDERCOVER. And apart from that I’ve done a bunch of menial little movies.

AX: What is you part in SO UNDERCOVER?

BOWMAN: I play her love interest that’s meant to be pretty charming! [Laughs] American again.

AX: Is it hard for you to lose your accent?

BOWMAN: I work really hard and I do work on it a lot. It’s been difficult, but I work on it.

AX: Anything else you tell me about your character in the movie besides her love interest?

BOWMAN: We meet in New Orleans at the University of Anthropology. I am a possible suspect for her to investigate. It’s basically like BOURNE IDENTITY Meets LEGALLY BLONDE. It’s a very PG-13 version.
