“THE NIGHT AGENT” Cast Talk New Netflix Series

by Nakia Monet

On Monday, March 20th, Netflix hosted a Red Carpet and Special Screening for their upcoming action thriller series, “THE NIGHT AGENT,” at the Tudum Screening Room.

Check out the photos from Netflix’s “THE NIGHT AGENT” special screening in Los Angeles.

We had the opportunity to speak with Gabriel Basso (Peter Sutherland), Luciane Buchanan (Rose Larkin), Hong Chau (Diane Farr), Fola Evans-Akingbola (Chelsea Arrington), DB Woodside (Monks), Sarah Desjardins (Maddie Redfield), Eve Harlow (Ellen), and Curtis Lum (Cisco) about their new series on Monday night.

The cast spoke about their characters, how the script attracted them to the project, and revealed who they would hire as their secret service agent for a night.

The upcoming Netflix series got based on Matthew Quirk’s novel The Night Agent, which is a sophisticated, character-based, action-thriller centering on a low-level FBI Agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings — until the night that it does, propelling him into a fast-moving and dangerous conspiracy that ultimately leads to the Oval Office.

Check out the character descriptions below.

● Gabriel Basso plays PETER SUTHERLAND, a low-level FBI Agent who works in the basement of the White House, manning an emergency hotline for American spies. When a call comes in from a terrified civilian, Rose Larkin, Peter must protect Rose and work with her to uncover the conspiracy that threatens to rock the nation.

● Luciane Buchanan plays ROSE LARKIN, a young tech CEO who has fallen on hard times and has retreated to her aunt and uncle’s house to reassess her life. When assassins come for her aunt and uncle, Rose learns they were not who they pretended to be, and barely escaping, finds herself with Peter, running for their lives.

● Hong Chau (The Whale, Watchmen) plays DIANE FARR, the President’s powerhouse Chief of Staff and loyal defender.

● Sarah Desjardins (Yellowjackets, Riverdale) plays MADDIE REDFIELD, the teenage daughter of the Vice President who is looking to escape his shadow.

● Fola Evans-Akingbola (Call My Agent, Black Mirror) plays CHELSEA ARRINGTON, the hardworking head of the Vice President’s daughter’s security detail, overseeing a group of male agents.

● Eve Harlow (NeXT, The 100) plays ELLEN, an unpredictable killer whose impulses come at a cost.

● Enrique Murciano (Bloodline, Father of the Bride 2) plays BEN ALMORA, the measured, steady hand who guides the Secret Service in the White House.

● Phoenix Raei (Clickbait, Stateless) plays DALE, Ellen’s partner — in violence and love.

● DB Woodside (Lucifer, 24) plays ERIK MONKS, who returns to the Secret Service after a long hiatus, prepared to earn back the trust and respect of the institution he serves.

Shawn Ryan (The Shield, S.W.A.T.) with MiddKid Productions is the creator, showrunner, and executive producer. Seth Gordon, Guy Ferland, Ramaa Mosley, Adam Arkin, and Millicent Shelton shared the director’s chair for Netflix’s ten-episode series.
