'Covert Affairs': Liane Balaban on playing Auggie's ex, a Russian hacker

23 August 2010 6:17 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

In the duplicitous world of "Covert Affairs," one's ex is never merely an ex.

Auggie Anderson's (Christopher Gorham) former girlfriend Natasha Petrovna, played by Canadian actress Liane Balaban, isn't just a disgruntled old flame, but a notorious hacker whose cyber attack on Washington catches the attention of the CIA on Tuesday's (Aug. 24) episode "Communication Breakdown."

The combination of beauty and tech savvy is a lethal combination for lady-magnet Auggie, who seems to have never quite gotten over Natasha, who would fit into his line of work if she weren't so anarchic.

"In the script Natasha's described as 'chaos in a bottle,'" Balaban tells Zap2it. "She's headstrong and impulsive, but also a woman with deeply held beliefs about what's right and wrong. She is courageous, someone who speaks truth to power."

Auggie and Natasha reconnect and -- as expected when emotions are involved -- it's not all just business. »
