MacGyver Reboot Adds Sandrine Holt as Series Regular, Playing Thornton

TV’s new MacGyver has found his new boss.

House of Cards alum Sandrine Holt has joined the CBS reboot as a series regular, playing Patricia Thornton, an ex-field agent turned Director of Operations for the DXS (Department of External Services). Not one to let the title of “Boss” stand in her way, Thornton is always willing to join the team in the field/fun.

Dana Elcar played the corresponding role, Pete Thornton, on the original Richard Dean Anderson-fronted adventure series.

Holt’s character will be introduced in the (rejiggered) series premiere, airing Friday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c. She joins a cast that currently includes series lead Lucas Till, George Eads (CSI) and Justin Hires (Rush Hour).

Having just made her debut on Mr. Robot Season 2, Holt’s previous TV credits also include A&E’s Damien and The Returned, plus CBS’ one-and-done Hostages.

    Wow. She might actually survive on this show. I seen her die in “Fear the Walking Dead”, the “Resident Evil 2” movie and “Terminator Genisys”.
