‘Nikita’s’ Maggie Q wants to make something “that people won’t forget”
HollywoodNews.com: Maggie Q, who has starred in “Mission Impossible III” and “Live Free or Die Hard” has just made the switch to television starring as Nikita in CW’s new show “Nikita.” While she’s excited for the new start and the sudden success, the modest actress shares some secrets behind the show.
Maggie Q said, “The power of TV is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. So I thought what a great opportunity to get to know the younger generation,” reports Entertainment Weekly. She adds that the “flawed heroine” is something that drew her to the part. “You’re rooting for her because she’s escaped. You’re rooting for her because she’s been given no choice in her life. But at the same time you’re dealing with somebody who’s taken on an enormous responsibility to get back at the people who not only have hurt her in her life but are hurting the country that she loves.”
While she’s been seen all over town on the huge billboards she says, “My mind is all about work. I see those posters and I got, “S**t I better live up to that hype!” Not by taking more clothes off but by making something that people won’t forget. That’s what it is for me.”
