Emily (Emily VanCamp) may have shown a moment of weakness in last night's episode of "Revenge" when she broke down in Aiden's (Barry Sloane) arms after the dramatic events of the evening, but VanCamp insists she'd much rather be fighting.

"I always feel like I'm playing a character when I'm in a beautiful dress, with my hair coiffed," VanCamp told GQ. "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!'"

She may love a good battle, but we've been warned by VanCamp herself that Emily will show her more vulnerable side this season.

"Going into Season 2, this is proving to be Emily's greatest challenge yet," VanCamp told Zap2it in September. "You see her unraveling a little bit. Emily's determination to find her mother becomes unhealthy, obsessive and really dangerous."
