In an interview with Celebuzz, Lanter told us, “That was a really intense sex scene. It was a little bit different from anything I’ve really filmed.” The actor also added that “it’s actually interesting why and how that happens,” hinting “maybe she’s holding something over his head so we kind of have to.”
On last week’s Season 5 premiere of the drama, we saw the return of the manipulative Vanessa, who after confronting Liam over their business contract overheard him lying to the insurance company about why the bar burned down.
What’s ahead for Liam and Vanessa?
Unfortunately, more Vanessa. Lanter tells us the manipulative and crazy character will be around in some way or another on at least the next 10 episodes.
“She’s going to be a big part of the next several episodes,” said Lanter, 29. “And basically, she knows his deepest darkest secrets now. This guy could go to jail for that for a long time. You’re going to see her influence and her manipulation really strong in the next several episodes. “
He continued, “He’s totally on strings with her. She’s controlling his life right now. “
In addition to Vanessa, Liam also has to deal with Silver’s (Jessica Stroup) decision to have a baby with Teddy (Trevor Donovan) and Navid’s (Michael Steger) sudden interest in the bar.
“Well we saw Silver make her decision and now it’s known,” said Lanter, 29. “Navid and Liam reacted pretty badly to it, but Liam’s a stand up guy. And I feel like [at] the end of last season, Silver really come to Liam with a lot of the emotional support that she needed.”
He added, “He’s kind of a rock for her in a way with all this stuff and that continues a little bit even though Liam’s kind of hiding his feelings.”
As for Navid, expect the tension seen between him and Liam to continue as they move into business together.
“We’re actually going to see Liam and Navid clash a little bit,” he revealed. “Last season they were sort of at each other’s throats a little bit with the Silver thing. We see the residual feelings from that. Navid does come in and lend money and try to revive this bar and that ends up becoming a problem between them. It’s kind of a business deal gone wrong in a way so we kind of see them at each other in that way.”
