Michael vartan who is he dating
My take is that they were probably high school sweethearts, or they met in college, and they’ve been married forever. They obviously have an agreement that they’re allowed to have certain extra-marital affairs, as long as it’s out in the open. It’s not the kind of relationship I would ever be able to survive in, but it works for them.
In the beginning, I think the relationship was very pure, honest and loving, but over the course of time and being business partners, God knows, being in business with someone you’re friends with or that you love is a tricky situation. In a weird way, they’re more business associates than husband and wife.
The main thing for Terence and his view of Megan is not so much that it’s Megan, it’s that he knows nothing about her. It’s funny, a lot of people have asked me, “Is this about Scientology? It’s a very old and common practice, in this business. If you were to ask me the difference between a contract marriage and a pre-nup, I don’t think there really is.
With the fact that this guy micro-manages every aspect of things, do you think “control freak” is a fair professional diagnosis of him? And I think he’s like that with everyone in his life, including himself. Everything he does and says is calculated and for a very specific reason.
When I think of Terence, I think about how every single word he says, anytime he speaks, is very calculating. There’s always a reason for why he’s saying whatever he’s saying. You don’t know if he’s dangerous, or what’s going on with him.
So, that’s definitely a lot more fun to play than the boyfriend next door. When I think of him, I think of someone who, 20 or 15 years ago, when he first started the Institute, was probably a lot less manipulative, flawed, strange and dark.
From his point of view, it’s easy to see why Megan is a threat and why her relationship with Kyle would need a contract. She’s someone who could derail everything he’s worked so hard to build with Kyle. I don’t actually know people who have been a part of them, but it’s been happening since the ‘20s.
When he drinks, he likes to drink his Scotch, but he knows exactly how many sips it takes to get tipsy and, at that point, he will stop drinking because he wants to be in control. If he were a real person, what a horrible way to live! What sort of relationship do Terence and his wife, Deann (Lexa Doig), have?
VARTAN: Lexa and I joke about it all the time, and we say that they love each other as much as they can.
I think he does genuinely love Kyle, to a certain extent, but there’s a lot of jealousy and a lot of envy.
When you needed someone to be successful, that’s a very tricky thing to navigate.
