LYNDSY Fonseca talks about some of the challenges of playing Alex in Nikita (released on Blu-ray and DVD on Monday, September 19) and working with Maggie Q. She also talks about some of the projects she has taken on around filming the show, including a cancer project that proved highly emotional.
Q. What was the initial appeal of playing Alex in Nikita?
Lyndsy Fonseca: I really felt the character was really well written. She wasn’t just a girl who had one thing on her mind… the writers really had created a lot of history already for her. I really trusted the creators’ vision and the writers. So, that appealed to me in the sense that it seemed like a challenge.

2X02 FALLING ASHES – DEVON SAWA RETURNS AS OWEN — While investigating an old corrupt Division program, P9, that seems to have resurfaced, Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West) run into Owen (guest star Devon Sawa). He tells them he is searching for Dr. Joseph Mars (guest star John Ralston), who is not only the mastermind behind P9, but also invented the Regimen and could help Owen wean himself off the dangerous drug. Michael is hesitant to trust Owen again but Nikita decides the three should join forces. Percy (Xander Berkeley) demands to see Alex (Lyndsy Fonseca). Aaron Stanford and Melinda Clarke also star. Eagle Egillson directed the episode written by Kalinda Vazquez.
Nikita (Maggie Q) and Michael (Shane West) plot to take down Division and Oversight and are prepared to use the contents of the black box to do so. Amanda (Melinda Clarke) is now running Division but Oversight has assigned one of their own, a new agent named Sean (guest star) Dillon Casey), to keep an eye on her. Amanda’s first mission is to get back the black box from Nikita, and she enlists Alex’s help to do so. Alex refuses until Amanda tells her she will help her find the man who killed Alex’s father. Meanwhile, Nikita and Michael find help from an unlikely ally.
Nikita returns on Friday, September 23rd on the CW.
