Jack Porter

Played by Nick Wechsler


Jack Porter is everything Emily Thorne wishes she could have – and if it wasn’t for her “Revenge-enda”, she would.

Jack runs the Stowaway, a Montauk bar that serves cold beer and warm smiles. Jack is just trying to earn a living while hoping to one day be able to sail off to Haiti to help those suffering, or perhaps take up some other noble cause. Of course, those plans have been put on the backburner ever since Jack’s father passed and he inherited both the Stowaway as well as becoming the guardian to his fiery brother Declan. Things only got more complicated for Jack when a young lady named Emily Thorne comes into town.

Jack felt an incredible connection with her… but wasn’t sure why. If only Jack knew that Emily was really Amanda Clarke, his best friend growing up. Things got even crazier for Jack when “Amanda Clarke” – the woman who switched identities with the real Amanda Clarke years ago – came into town. Jack soon found himself in a whirlwind romance with the person he thinks is Amanda. Amanda eventually left town but later returned to the Hamptons, pregnant with Jack’s baby!

Amanda is killed and her death causes Jack to seek revenge on Conrad resulting in the death of his brother Declan. Jack takes a break from the Hamptons after Emily reveals her true identity.  He returns with his son Carl and begins a relationship with Margaux LeMarchal. That does not pan out and later he becomes a cop. Now that Charlotte has burned the Stowaway to the ground, Jack is not sure what his future holds. One thing is for sure, Emily Thorne is probably somehow in it.
