Michelle Ryan will recur on “Covert Affairs” next season.

She will play Teresa Hamilton, an agent with a shadowy past, starting in the season four premiere. Hill Harper (“CSI:NY”) is also joining the cast as a regular. Harper will play a CIA station chief in Latin America. He will try to befriend Annie (played by Piper Perabo) and Auggie (played by Christopher Gorham), but they will begin questioning his intentions.

Ryan starred in the short-lived “Bionic Woman” reboot on NBC in 2007. Only eight episodes of the reboot made it to air.

The British actress also appeared as Zoe Slater in British soap opera “EastEnders.” Ryan has also appeared on “Merlin” and “Doctor Who.”

The drama “Cover Affairs” is created by Matt Corman and Chris Ord. Perabo and Gorham star along with Kari Matchett, Anne Dudek, Sendhil Ramamurthy and Peter Gallagher. Annie is a young CIA trainee being led by blind tech operative Auggie. Annie has a cover story of working in Acquisitions at the Smithsonian Museum.

“Covert Affairs’” season four premiere is Tuesday, July 16, at 9 p.m. ET on USA.

She may not be the greatest actress on this planet but she still brings a nice, friendly and shiny personality to the table. Not to mention her devilish acttractiveness (those eyes could turn any woman into a lesbian in an instant). The pic above isn't doing her any favors. She's more of the natural beauty type imho (yes, even with those 2 heavyweights). Long story short, I like her a lot. She may very well be my favorite actress this century (so far). Hopefully she'll get a good gig of her own soon. Contrary to popular believe Michelle Ryan is probably more than capable to carry a decent (action/mystery maybe) show. One doesn't require her to hide her fantastic female attributes :)

I've not been impressed with Ms. Ryan's acting skills. I watched the Bionic Woman reboot and aside from the lousy writing and plot her character wasn't that engaging or interesting.   Interesting that you mention Merlin and Doctor Who because I've seen every one of those shows and I don't recall her being in them.  Although I'm sure you're correct that's how much of an impression she's made on me. 

Maybe her talents (as displayed above) will be put to better use in Covert Affairs. Maybe next time you could find a picture that showed more cleavage.
