Jane herself, Rachael Taylor, gives HollywoodLife.com the scoop on the Oct. 7 episode & the many revelations to come.
Last Sunday, ABC’s 666 Park Avenue invited viewers to check into The Drake, a haunted apartment building with dark twists and deadly surprises around every corner, and Rachael Taylor — who plays Jane, one half of the Drake’s new management team — assures HollywoodLife.com that the twists have only just begun. For starters, “we learn that Jane has a more personal connection to the Drake than we thought, or even she thought.”
“Jane makes a discovery that hints at why she might be more attune to the supernatural happenings in the building,” Rachel reveals, adding that Jane’s husband Henry (Dave Annable) still “cannot seem to encounter or experience the supernatural world at all — which is certainly interesting for their relationship.”
And by “interesting,” of course, she means detrimental.
“My personal concern, because I love Dave Annable, is that their relationship can’t survive,” Rachael admits. “[Henry’s] going to start to look at Jane and think, ‘Oh no. The woman I love is losing her mind.'”
Of course, Jane’s mind might only be the first of many things she loses. Rachael says her character goes through so many changes over the course of the season — the show was picked up for 13 episodes — that she becomes “quite literally unrecognizable” as we draw nearer to the end.
No matter what hell Jane goes through on the show — and believe me, there’s plenty of it — Rachael says she’s thrilled to have a job that puts her alongside TV legends like Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn.
“Vanessa is so easy and confident,” Rachael says. “She just shows up and delivers an incredible performance. She knows that TV format so well, and she knows herself so well. She’s lovely to be around. But she’s also a tough cookie, which I really respect. … And I could listen to Terry read the phone book. He’s such a talented, amazing actor. You could hand him a copy of the yellow pages and he would make it sound spooky and sexy and everything in between.”
“Spooky and sexy and everything in between,” huh? I can’t think of a better way to sum up 666 Park Avenue!
Here’s a preview of the next all-new 666 Park Avenue, airing Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
