Hidden Remote: 16 New Faces to Watch this Season

The Show:
When to Watch: Blindspot airs Wednesdays (beginning on September 21) at 8/7c on NBC; the Season 2 premiere airs Wednesday September 14 at 10/9c.
Why You Should Be Watching: When Australian actor Luke Mitchell burst onto the American scene with The CW’s short-lived sci-fi drama The Tomorrow People, he quickly became a fan favorite. So it came as little surprise when ABC snapped him up to star in their superhero series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. After 2 seasons, one spent in recurring and the other as a main cast member, Mitchell departed the series in Season 3 via a storyline dictated exit.

Now Mitchell is off to his next venture with a role on the second season of NBC’s hit dramatic thriller Blindspot. He will be playing Roman, an operative from Jane Doe’s (Jaimie Alexander) past. The character had been previously mentioned in the season finale so viewers should be anticipating his arrival. No stranger to action sequences and suspenseful storylines, it would not be surprising to see Mitchell’s role expand in the coming season. Like Tomorrow People fans did, Blindspot’s will likely request it.


Blindspot: First look at Luke Mitchell’s ‘unpredictable’ character

Luke Mitchell will make his Blindspot debut in the second season premiere — and EW has an exclusive first look. The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alum will play Roman, a member of the shadowy organization that sent Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) to the FBI. Roman is also a familiar face from Jane’s past — a flashback to her childhood in season 1 featured a boy with a scar on his face.


“He’s very, very, very protective of Jane, extremely protective of Jane,” Alexander tells EW. “He’s unpredictable, which is a really great character to play. [Luke] is fantastic, he’s just absolutely fantastic. He’s a cool, great guy, great actor, just nails that character. He’s such a great addition to the cast.”

Blindspot adds Luke Mitchell, Michelle Hurd in season 2

Luke Mitchell and Michelle Hurd have joined the cast of Blindspot as new series regulars in season 2, EW has learned.

Hurd, an original Law & Order: SVU cast member whose recent credits include Daredevil and Hawaii Five-0, will play another member of the shadowy organization that sent Jane to the FBI.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Mitchell, whose character was recently killed off the ABC super series, will play Roman, also a member of the organization. Roman’s name was mentioned in the finale as a contact Jane was supposed to connect with, and he’s been teased on the show before — he appeared in Jane’s flashback to her childhood, in which we saw a boy with a scar on his face.

Entertainment Weekly: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Fallen Agent speaks out on that death

It’s the moment Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans have been dreading since the flash forward in the midseason finale revealed that someone would die in a space-bound quinjet. After a game of hot potato of death, the two-hour season finale revealed that the Fallen Agent is Lincoln (Luke Mitchell), who sacrificed himself to save both Daisy (Chloe Bennet) and the world, as Hive planned to turn humanity into swayed Inhumans, a.k.a. Primitives. EW hit the set on Mitchell’s final day of production to get his take on leaving S.H.I.E.L.D.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Did you get an early sense that Lincoln would get killed off?
When they had initially revealed that someone is going to die, I was like, “That’s a really cool twist.” Part of me was like, “But it’ll probably end up being [someone random].” Then I was like, “Actually, no, maybe it is going to be something big.” That would be a really cool season-ending thing if it was one of the main cast, because that hasn’t really happened. Ward kind of died, but Brett stayed on the show, therefore you’re not losing an actor. Then I was like, “Well, they’re not going to kill off any of the originals. That’s the show. That’s what the core of the show is.”

Then I started thinking about the peripherals around the core members, which I consider myself to be one of the peripheral characters because I came in late in the game. I was like, “Well, they’re not going to kill Yo-Yo because that would be too obvious because it’s her necklace. She’s awesome and she’s a comic book character who they’ve just introduced and barely used.” Then I was like, “Joey, would they kill Joey off? He’s not a comic book character. No, he’s Latino and he’s gay, they better not kill him off.” Then all of a sudden I’m like, “I think it could be me, straight white guy.” It was a really funny thing. Early on, before I knew knew, I started to get a feeling that it could be me. To be perfectly honest, all things considered, I think it’s the right choice. Dramatically, it’s really interesting. I take my hat off to them for killing the straight white guy. There’s been so much talk about killing off gay characters or killing off minority characters. We have such diversity on our show, which is terrific. When it was me, I was like, “touché.” Obviously I’m very sad to be saying goodbye, but I think it’s good for the story.

Is there some solace at least that he gets to go out like a hero?
Sure. If you’re going to die, I couldn’t have written a better ending for the character. Yeah, there’s a little bit of, “Cool. Save the girl. Save the world. Great.” Knowing what Daisy has seen [in the prophecy], then going, well, “It’s me or her, and I’m not having it be her.” He doesn’t want to be in that position. He’s not suicidal. He’s f—ing scared, even after the events take place and he’s in the quinjet with Hive. He’s terrified, but he knows he’s made the right decision, because if Daisy had sacrificed herself, I’m not sure he’d be able to live with himself. But, yeah, still sad. As an actor, when you step into a character’s shoes, you really live and breathe this character, and you try to flesh it out as much as you can with the writing that you’ve been given and the limited information about future episodes. You start to see all the possibilities. You start seeing this just grow and build, so from that point of view, I was initially sad, because I was like, “There was more to mine with the character.” I would’ve had fun continuing this journey going into the next season. But now taking a step back, in hindsight, it’s absolutely the right choice. Continue reading
