On Revenge, Emily VanCamp's character, Emily Thorne, is involved with a preppy, wealthy polo-player. But what's her real-life type?
"I'll tell you one thing I don't want," the actress tells Lucky for its June issue (out May 8). "A guy who sits around and plays video games and smokes pot."
VanCamp does reveal she's attracted to a paternal kind of guy. "I think women look for that quality in a man of being a good dad whether they're immediately wanting to be a parent or not," she says. "It's important to me that a man is good at taking care of people."

Fans are not the only ones eager to find out what happens on Revenge – the stars of the juicy drama get just as excited.
"So much can happen in an episode. At this point I've resorted to flipping to the very last scene the minute I get the script to see where [my character Charlotte Grayson] is going to end up," actress Christa Allen told PEOPLE recently while on break from filming.
Allen admits the nature of the primetime soap opera means that any character could "fly off the handle and become the enemy of any other character," but she calls the cast a "family."
"I don't know how I would do it without them," she said. "Every single person on the cast just has so much love for one another."

In a promo during Sunday's Oscar telecast, Emily VanCamp's Revenge character teased, "I'm just getting started," but on Wednesday's episode (10 p.m. ET), it is her fiancé who is the center of attention.
In an exclusive PEOPLE sneak preview (see video above), newly-engaged Daniel Grayson (Josh Bowman) is interrogated about the shooting of con artist Tyler Barrol (Ashton Holmes) before he is released to his waiting parents and fiancée.
Daniel says he wishes to go home with VanCamp's Emily Thorne but not before requesting to speak to his mother Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) alone.

She may be headed for the altar on her hit show Revenge, but Emily VanCamp, who plays Emily Thorne (and swears she is nothing like her character), is still looking for "the one" in real life.
Most recently connected to Vampire Diaries star Joseph Morgan, VanCamp tells Canada's Flare magazine distance is to blame for their breakup.
"I'm working non-stop in L.A., he's working in Atlanta. It kind of makes it impossible," she says in the March cover story. "It doesn't take away from the love that two people have, and I think he's extraordinary."

Emily VanCamp has found herself in the middle of a "twisted" love triangle – on TV, that is.
VanCamp's character on ABC's Revenge, vengeful vigilante Emily Thorne, may be seeking justice for her late father, but she's also struggling to choose between Jack (Nick Wechsler), her working-class childhood friend, and Daniel (Joshua Bowman), the privileged son of her nemesis.
"Obviously there is a deep love and connection with Jack that is certainly not part of the plan," VanCamp, 25, tells E! Online of the love triangle. "I think she's really trying to keep him at an arm's length, and he obviously makes her feel something, but I think if she really lets that go to far it could really disrupt her plan [with Daniel]. ... it's really kind of messy."

On ABC's juicy new hit drama Revenge, Emily VanCamp plays a woman whose purpose is to settle the score with all of the people who contributed to ruining the life of her beloved late father.
"It's been so much fun," VanCamp says of playing vindictive yet righteous Emily Thorne – a character that is a huge departure from her previous television series roles on Everwood and Brothers and Sisters.
"I was so desperate to do something completely outside the box that people weren't expecting and I think this is the epitome of that," says VanCamp, who enjoys the verbal sparring matches with her on-screen nemesis, Victoria Grayson, played by Madeleine Stowe.
