Mission: Impossible starlet Maggie Q is the New Nikita!

Maggie Q (Mission: Impossible III) has been cast as the new “Nikita”, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

 

The character was first played by Anne Parillaud in Luc Besson’s 1990 film, followed by Bridget Fonda in the 1993 remake and Peta Wilson in the 1997 USA Network series.

 

According to the trade, The CW’s premise of a new Nikita being trained to replace the original one after she goes rogue gave creator Craig Silverstein an opportunity to break the stereotype, and he wrote the lead as “beautiful and exotic.”
