When asked recently what she thought about the prospect of Bean joining Nikita full-time, star Maggie Q told us, “He’d be such an asset to the show [on a permanent basis].

“These are all different [male characters],” she continued. “You have [Percy], who’s your villain, Birkhoff, who everybody loves and is super-cute, and Michael, the brooding, sexy, leading man. And then you have this beautiful, intelligent, grounded character Ryan Fletcher, which I love… I think he’s great.”

Bean first appeared on Nikita midway through Season 1 and has gone on to guest star in 11 episodes — including this Friday’s finale, airing at 8/7c.
