The new TNT series Legends, based on the book by master spy novelist Robert Littell, follows Martin Odum (Sean Bean), an undercover agent working for the FBI’s Deep Cover Operations division, who has such an uncanny ability to transform himself into a completely different person for each job that he begins to question whether he really is the man he believes himself to be. The show also stars Ali Larter, Morris Chestnut, Tina Majorino, Steve Harris, Amber Valletta and Mason Cook.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Tina Majorino (who plays Maggie Harris, the newest member of the DCO team) talked about how she got involved with this show, that a different actor had originally been cast in Sean Bean’s role, how the rewrites of the original script changed the backstory of her character, how Maggie fits in with the team, and the research she did to get into the headspace of someone in this profession. She also talked about how surreal and amazing it’s been to have such great fan support from her involvement with Veronica Mars and Napoleon Dynamite. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
