Sarah Shahi is going after Finch and Reese!
The former Fairly Legal star has scored a recurring guest star role on CBS’s Person of Interest, EW has learned.
She will play Shaw, a “fearless, sexy operative in a secret paramilitary organization that tracks and eliminates terrorists before they can act,” according to creator/executive producer Jonathan Nolan. “She brings to her work a yen for mayhem and a sharp, dark wit — in whatever language the locals are speaking,” he says of the character. “If James Bond and Sarah Connor had a kid, Shaw would kick its ass.”
Her multi-episode arc begins in the Feb. 21 episode, titled “Relevance,” which will be directed by Nolan.
Shahi currently recurs on Chicago Fire.
