Sarah Clarke as Nina Myers

Sunday, October 27, 2002

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

From the start, Nina seemed like one of the good guys, even after an early tease in the first season that she might be the mole within the Counter Terrorism Unit.

That concern went away for a long time, but, in the end, there she was, a mole within CTU, speaking a foreign language and communicating with evil, vengeful Victor Drazen (guest star Dennis Hopper).

"I was clued in when there were only six episodes left," Sarah Clarke said. "I have to say, I was thrilled. It gave me something very specific to play. It gave me so many layers I could add."

Even so, it came as a surprise.

"I remember saying, 'Oh no, I love Jack, I would never do that to Jack.' I think for a long time Carlos Bernard thought it was him, then George Mason, but George was a little obvious. They needed to make it a little more subtle."

Nina will return midseason for what's expected to be a six-episode stint.

"I'm pretty sure I'm incarcerated in some sort of capacity," Clarke said. "After a season of just one outfit, I thought, great, now I'm just going to get prison stripes."
