Meet Emily VanCamp, one of the stars of ABC's “Revenge” and the newest sex symbol for the lucky guys at GQ to photograph and interview. How much of a tomboy is VanCamp? Here's a preview:

GQ: You pull off the salty-sweet thing on Revenge really well. Which comes easier?
VanCamp: Yeah, I always feel like I'm playing a character when I'm in a beautiful dress, with my hair coiffed. I like getting down and dirty. It's really fun. There's nothing better than setting an asshole's house on fire. It's those moments when I think “I love my job!”

GQ: Would you consider yourself more of a tomboy, then?
VanCamp: Definitely. I did ballet, which taught me how to be poised and graceful, but still, to this day I'd rather be fishing than going to some glamorous party. It's so therapeutic.

GQ: What's the biggest thing you've caught?
VanCamp: I think a barracuda—quite a big one—in the Caribbean.

GQ: What?! That's so badass.
VanCamp: It wasn't! It was on one of those industrial lines.

GQ: Where else have you vacationed recently?
VanCamp: Well, I went to Bora Bora and swam with sharks. Just reef sharks and lemon sharks.

 

Funny, we're not really getting the toyboy vibe from these shots:
