Maggie Q joins Kevin Williamson pilot

Nikita star Maggie Q has been cast as a series regular in Kevin Williamson’s untitled stalker-crime drama for CBS.

She will play Detective Beth Davis, who is described as “opinionated and obsessive, Beth is the guarded, workaholic Division Captain of LAPD’s Threat Assessment Unit.”

The pilot from Warner Bros. TV and writer-producer Williamson (The Following) is a psychological thriller centered on detectives who handle stalking incidents. Maggie Q also has an upcoming role in the Divergent trilogy, and this fall will be seen in the feature film Conspiracy on Jekyll Island.

wait, but i thought she was going to be in some series about a chinese pirate?! i was looking forward to that....

also, <3 maggie, but she needs to stop trying so hard to look so srs. her pose during the comic con panel cracked me up:

the others all have huge grins on their faces, and then you have...maggie.

she can do both, hopefully! i'm a bit worried they didn't mention it in the article

did that panel ever appear on youtube?

This should be the cast for the female version of the expendables.

I would totally buy a ticket

Well the movie is definitely in the works and only two or three actresses have been named. I hope Maggie is one of them :

I recently got into Nikita and it/she is amazing, so once I finish the series I'm definitely here for whatever she's doing next

what ep are you up to now???
shinagara 19th-Mar-2014 09:17 pm (UTC)
I just watched episode 20 of the first season! The ending to that episode was another great twist. I love how fastpaced the show is, but with so much having happened already I'm almost worried about where it's going to go in the next seasons lol

I'm obsessed with Nikita. I was so upset when it was cancelled after hanging on for so long lol
mila_s_garden 19th-Mar-2014 10:14 pm (UTC)
At least they were able to give it an end, but I still miss it.

She is ridiculously beautiful. Made the whole cast of Divergent look like unfortunate plebs when she showed up on that red carpet.
catnipped_mind 19th-Mar-2014 07:59 pm (UTC)
I thought she was doing that pirate series!? Is that not happening anymore I was super excited to hear more about it : (

I still can't believe they cancelled Nikita, yet they let every other show stay on the air at least 2 season too many.

Can't wait to see Maggie Q in more things. She's great.

nikita & alex were the best, two women kicking ass and taking names

imnotasquirrel 19th-Mar-2014 08:22 pm (UTC)
and at least they gave nikita a heads up so they were able to close the series properly. i'm actually sort of glad that nikita didn't last for years and years, i don't want it to turn into a pathetic zombie like supernatural.

omg that moment was so epic

Good to see her get book another gig so quickly. And with Kevin Williamson no less. Be curious to see if CBS can fit it into the schedule
victimnextdoor 19th-Mar-2014 08:43 pm (UTC)
So happy for my bb. I'm so excited she's getting work.
sweet_heloise 19th-Mar-2014 08:55 pm (UTC)
Stalking...? Okay. Hope it's nothing like The Following.
therearewords 19th-Mar-2014 08:57 pm (UTC)
Get those jobs.
kimberlli_jv 19th-Mar-2014 09:21 pm (UTC)
Yay! She slayed on Nikita, so I just want to see her be a bad ass in things.
thisjoanissima 19th-Mar-2014 10:14 pm (UTC)
I'm happy she's getting work after Nikita. I hope that chinese pirate thing she was doing is a mini-series so she can do both, because that sounded pretty cool.
rogueguy 19th-Mar-2014 10:59 pm (UTC)
Love her

Nikita deserved a few more seasons tbh
anterrabre 20th-Mar-2014 12:00 am (UTC)
This sounds good; I'll give it a watch.
flirflir 20th-Mar-2014 01:58 am (UTC)
