    • Because when I think ratings-boosting stunt casting, I think television character actors.

      She’s a badass, great actor and I’m sure she’ll add a lot to the show.

    • I was just going to post this! They look REALLY alike. Could totally pass for mother and daughter.

      Uh oh, Spy Mommy 2.0. Honestly she’ll never top Irina from Alias, but Spy Mommys make for some good drama!

    • Agreed. Some of the shows today with high ratings will never be as half as good as Nikita is, and continues to be.

  • I’m a fan from Asia. I love this show so much. Everything is perfect in Nikita, the acting, the story, the high-tech. Do wish the show can last longer.

  • Couldn’t help but smile when hearing about this. This makes two 24 cast members in this show now. She was one heck of an appreciated villain I was sad they killed her off.
