Missy Peregrym is hard to get

The star of FBI turned down the show's legendary creator, Dick Wolf, not once, but twice, before accepting the role of Maggie Bell. "I didn't want to do it, mostly because I just loved playing Andy McNally [on Rookie Blue], and how do you play another cop again without it just being her?" the actress told Watch!. Fortunately for us, she came around after reading the "amazing" pilot script.

Missy Peregrym knows how to rebuild

In 2015, after the end of Rookie Blue and the dissolution of a marriage, the FBI star decided to take the space she deserved. "I really worked on grounding myself, noticing all the smaller things around me that are beautiful and wonderful," she says.

With time—and through meditation and long walks on the beach with her boyfriend and golden doodle—she began opening herself up to new opportunities.

Missy Peregrym is forever grateful

"Every time I've gotten a job, there's always been somebody—and I have no idea who they are—fighting for me," she says of the oft-mysterious casting process. The daughter of a preacher, Peregrym chooses to have faith, even when faced with things beyond her control.

"I'm intense and I'm sensitive, and I used to hate hearing that," she tells Watch!. "But at the end of the day, they're actually right. I don't have this energy that's super soft and laid-back."

Missy Peregrym and Maggie Bell have a lot in common

Much like the hardcore character she portrays, Peregrym is "on fire for justice. I need to see it carried out." Her hope is that show will inspire her not to "put [her] head in the sand anymore... Now it's time to face things head-on."

Missy Peregrym is well on her way to being a New Yorker

"I thought that it was gonna be harder to settle here—and I immediately felt grounded and I can't really explain it," Peregrym says of moving to the city that never sleeps. "People talk about New Yorkers as rude. But they look at you and they actually make eye contact with you when they ask you questions. They want to have an answer."

Missy Peregrym is one-of-a-kind

"In my opinion, in the universe of actors, there's only one who could be Olivia Benson [on Law and Order: SVU]. And now there's only one who could be Maggie Bell," FBI-creator Dick Wolf says of his new leading lady.

Missy Peregrym respects the badge

"These are people who are sacrificing so much of their time and their life to protect the greater good," she says of the FBI rank and file. "They're not disconnected from all the heartache and suffering and the tragedy that's happening. They go into the center of it to deal."

Missy Peregrym goes all in

"I'm not a trained actor, and I just don't separate," she says of the physical and emotional toll of dramatic scenes, like the explosion in the FBI pilot. "I was like, 'God, this is horrible.' [I was] going home and blowing out black snot. And that's nothing compared to what these real heroes have faced in the field."

Missy Peregrym is getting that happily ever after

She plans to marry her Australian boyfriend, Tom, in 2019. Earlier this year, the duo road tripped cross-country from Los Angeles—bunking in motels and making pitstops at kitschy "World's Largest" attractions—before moving into their new Brooklyn townhouse.

"Really at the end of the day, there's only one thing to do," she advises. "Take the job that scares the sh*t out of you and get married and get into another relationship that scares the sh*t out of you." Words to live by.

When the creative team behind The Good Wife and The Good Fight tackle a mystery-based drama about hauntings, miracles, and spiritual possession, you know it's gonna be scary good. Also scary smart, scary engrossing—and maybe just a little funny, too.

Cast member Aasif Mandvi describes Katja Herbers' forensic psychologist character Kristen Bouchard as "interestingly caught in the middle, because she's naturally a skeptic but also leans toward, Could it be true? Could some things be true?"

Mike Colter explores the uncharted

"My character," says Mike Colter, Evil's almost-priest David Acosta, "is on the journey of a priest. He's supposed to be—chaste and sort of changing."

Aasif Mandvi takes time to reflect

"One of the realities you realize as you get older in this business is that it's all up and down," Aasif Mandvi tells Watch in the September-October 2019 issue. "That's how this business goes, so you can't take yourself too seriously at any moment."

Katja Herbers opens new doors

"[Evil's creators] were looking for someone who can do some drama," Katja Herbers tells Watch! in the September-October 2019 issue, "but also has a lightness, has a bit of a twinkle sometimes, can bring some fun to this darkness."

Mike Colter keeps things cool

"Will we gloat when we're right?" Mike Colter asks in reference to Acosta's and Bouchard's differing stances. "I don't know, but we have these moments where it's a healthy debate. And perhaps that's our flirtation, perhaps that's our relationship."

Katja Herbers hits new heights

"I am quite a scaredy-cat myself, so it frightened me to read her story at first and to envision it a little bit," says Katja Herbers of her Evil alter ego Kristen Bouchard.

"We get each other," says Mike Colter regarding his relationship with costars Katja Herbers and Aasif Mandvi. "And I feel like the characters can go any way we want them to go."

Before he was cast as David Acosta in CBS' new drama series Evil, Mike Colter achieved cult-star status for his titular role in the Marvel TV series Luke Cage.

"I was raised in an Indian Muslim family, and it was very common for my grandparents to talk about ghosts, and demons, spirits, things like that," shares Aasif Mandvi tells Watch! in the September-October 2019 issue. "It was just the tapestry of how they grew up and what they believed."

Katja Herbers is a funny girl

"I think [Evil's creators] were interested in my comedy work, because I come from comedy in Holland," says Katja Herbers, who cites Julia Louis-Dreyfus as one of her favorite actors.

Aasif Mandvi knows good humor

Many Evil viewers will recognize Aasif Mandvi as a former The Daily Show fixture, where his satirical sketches such as "Paging Dr. Mandvi" left a lasting comedic mark.

Katja Herbers plays to win

Though psychologist Kristen Bouchard flirts with danger and takes risks, Katja Herbers tells Watch! that her alter ego isn't totally reckless: "If somebody's threatening her, she could just give them something back, throw them off their game. She's not easily intimidated. Maybe underneath, but she's never gonna show it."

These co-stars have three times the charm

"There's a cohesion that's happened because we're working together," says Aasif Mandvi his Evil castmates. "But I feel like we're also the kind of people that all get along organically."

COVER UPS

High-fashion face nasks

Cellphone, keys, wallet, and my new must: my mask. I never thought THAT would make my checklist for leaving the house, but here we are. I found some beautiful ones and am ditching the powder blue and snow white styles. These are fun, funky, and would definitely make an impression that the CDC would blush at.

I fell in love with Victor de Souza's fuchsia coverup with detachable bow, and for more than a basic fabric covering, GRLFRND's mesh covering is like jewelry for your face.

RELAXOLOGY

Designer floral slippers

Raise your hand if you missed wearing high heels. I didn't. For the first time in my life, I happily embraced new words in COVID isolation like "comfy", "cushy", and "casual". My new obsession: fancy slippers. Birdies wovens became the must haves for answering the door for deliveries and walking the dog. They're shoes with slippers inside! These floral ones—The Phoebe—are $120 and perfect indoor/ outdoor with added cushions in the soles.

PAW-CHELLA

In 2019, tie dye was a huge trend on the runways from Prada and R13 (above), and it continues to this day. The TikTok and YouTube generation sees it as an individual expression as no two looks are the same. And in these heartwrenchingly sad times, the yearning for peace and hope is on everyone's minds. This old hippie loves onesies and T-shirts on my personal billboard: my dog! Moe Greene will be sporting an adorbs leash and collar Martingale set by Country Brook Design. This style is designed to keep dogs from slipping out.

MAGIC MARKERS

Collection of colorful eyeliners

I needed this Sephora Collection eyeliner stick for my eyes which kept me glamorous for Zoom meetings and lasted all day. There are 37 different colors to choose from and are easy to apply and easy to smudge. I will now order a crate.

CHAIR ESSENTIALS

Staying at home for three months straight, I realized I needed a great chair for my official WFH status. Who thinks about things like this? EVERYONE. So there is a waitlist for this incredible chair—Layman High Back Ergonomic Mesh Executive Chair. It's great for the back, it tilts, and it rolls. And the colors... CHIC!
