A bionic woman has gotten a gig as a CIA operative.
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.
