Is a romance in store for Revenge’s resident techie?

As TVLine reports, Greek actress Dilshad Vadsaria is all set to join the second season of the Hamptons soap as Padma, a finance whiz who lands a gig at Nolan’s (Gabriel Mann) company. While the actress is still only rumored to be Nolan’s new love interest, when we caught up with Mann during a press tour party earlier this month he confirmed that his character’s new flame had a “very international” background.

Though Nolan’s last relationship didn’t exactly end well (read: The guy turned out to be a certifiable psychopath), Mann was optimistic that things would work out a little better this time around…at least to begin with.  “I think we will start off in a much more genuine place,” said Mann, who explained that he’s expecting the new relationship to be full of snark and of course, “lots of sexy time.”

Mann also said he’s eager to see what Nolan looks like when he’s really in love, though he’s hardly expecting a happy ending.  “I don’t know how long love lasts on Revenge, if love is even possible,” said Mann. “But we’re going to give it a shot.”
