Alyssa Milano and Brett Tucker in “Mistresses”Don’t call “Mistresses” a “Desperate Housewives” reboot in Brett Tucker’s presence.
ABC’s newest soapy drama features the Australian actor playing Harry, the husband to Alyssa Milano’s Savi.
“It’s a sexy show to watch and people going to fall in love with the characters, but there’s less of the crazy extreme circumstances like ‘Housewives.’ There’s just a lot of heart,” the 41-year-old actor told the Journal.
To play Harry, a chef, Tucker spent a lot of time chopping vegetables, “mostly carrots,” at Musso and Frank Grill on Hollywood Blvd.
He has no qualms about discussing male infertility, an issue his character struggles with beginning in the first episode. He phoned the Journal to talk infertility, infidelity and how being Australian ultimately got him the job.
Speakeasy: Your character’s struggles with infertility are placed front and center in the pilot. That seems like a pretty interesting introduction to a character.
Tucker: Rather than the titillation, the show is more about the pain and the difficulty people go through. It was a very interesting way into Harry, but male infertility is very real. There’s more to him than that, but it’s something a lot of men struggle with, it’s something he struggles with.
In the first couple of episodes, Harry is cheated on, discovers he has reproductive issues and has a major fight with Savi.
The thing that I like about this character, he keeps getting back on the horse. This fertility issue knocks him around and he keeps fighting. He’s willing to do whatever it takes, from the infertility to the infidelity. The obstacles that come up again, they keep getting bigger and bigger.
What does that mean?
The character, Harry, is a better man than I am. It is pain and real anguish and lost dreams come up and he reacts to it like a human does, he doesn’t fall apart completely, he doesn’t get too depressed.
How does the infidelity affect the infertility?
The infidelity doesn’t really affect the infertility, that storyline keeps developing through the series. The infertility thing, it’s not as bad as it first seems. There is a why with the infidelity. It plays a huge part in the storyline.
It delves into human stories and relationships and that kind of pain. Obstacles like being cheated on, they are more human and its something everyone can relate to, the human element.
When you originally auditioned for the role of Harry, he was American.
I went into the audition as an American, got cast as an American. It wasn’t until first day shooting pilot, I was there for hair and makeup and chatting to the showrunner. Yunjin [Kim, who plays Karen] suggested that I use my own accent. So we changed the storyline a bit because I prepared to be American, but the accent really sold everyone on Harry.
You said earlier that this show had heart. But there’s a fair amount of shirtless men episode after episode, yourself included.
It does have that, and that’s probably the sexy element. It’s pleasant to look at, and its an ultimately universal show, but the more the show goes on the more human it gets. I’ll be wearing more clothing as it goes on.

Australian actor Brett Tucker, known for his starring role as Scott Lovejoy in the TV movie 'Halifax f.p: The Spider and the Fly' is set to star in a brand new ABC drama titled 'Mistresses' in 2013. Tucker will play Harry Dillon in 'Mistresses', a character that has some striking similarities to the character that helped make him famous - Scott Lovejoy.
Madison, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/28/2012 -- TV drama fans are in for a treat in 2013 when Australian heartthrob actor Brett Tucker lands on the small screen in the brand new ABC drama 'Mistresses'. Australian actor Brett Tucker may not be that well known to American audiences but that's about to change soon. In May of 2013 Tucker will be starring in a brand new ABC drama series titled 'Mistresses'. The series is an adaptation of a British show that was broadcast in Britain from 2008-10 and details the increasingly complicated lives of four female friends. The drama series also features Alyssa Milano, Rochelle Aytes, Yunjin Kim and Jes Macallan.
According to ABC's official website, post production work is already under way on the series which has been adapted from the original British version which first aired from 2008-10 in Britain and helped Tucker boost his profile considerably in Britain. Although Tucker is not that well known in the USA, he is a household name in Australia after starring as Scott Lovejoy in the TV movie 'Halifax f.p: The Spider and the Fly' and the long running soap 'Neighbors'.
Brett Tucker had already made something of a name for himself in Britain after starring in the long running primetime soap 'Neighbors'. The Australian soap has long been a staple of British television and has been on the air continuously for over 25 years. Tucker played the much loved character 'Daniel Fitzgerald' in 'Neighbors' after launching his career playing 'Max Regnery' in children's series 'The Saddle Club'. 2013 is set to be the year when Tucker can add the USA to the list of countries where he is a household name.
In his homeland of Australia, audiences also know Tucker from his starring role in the hugely successful TV movie 'Halifax f.p: The Spider and the Fly', where he played the character 'Scott Lovejoy'. Initial reports from test screenings of 'Mistresses' suggest that Tucker's character in 'Mistresses', Harry Dillon bears more than just little resemblance to his 'Scott Lovejoy' character.
