NiceGirlsTV.com caught up with Covert Affairs co-stars Kari Matchett & Peter Gallagher at Comic Con 2011 last week for a chat about the new season.
Kari had some interesting and intelligent comments about playing Joan, a woman who has earned a top spot at the CIA, and how she hopes that will inspire other women. She also discusses how Joan’s relationship with Annie has changed from nemesis to mentor, a change we wholeheartedly embrace. We need more strong women working together on TV instead of being in competition with each other.
An enthusiastic Peter expressed his appreciation for Joan as a strong female character on TV, a perfect match for Arthur. He revealed that we’ll learn more about their relationship and backstories both together and apart. Both were excited about their characters going out in the field on missions and USA’s support for the show filming on location, giving them a chance to explore their characters more and adding validity to the series itself.
Covert Affairs airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on USA Network.
