Strike Back's New Agent

Rhona Mitra is ready for action! The Boston Legal alum has joined forces with Cinemax's counterterrorism drama Strike Back for its second season, debuting in August. "This show is all the things that excite me," says the actress. "I find it incredibly stimulating intellectually, physically and creatively."

Mitra reports to the top-secret intelligence agency "Section 20" as Rachel Dalton, a shadowy special-ops agent who teams up with Sergeants Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and Scott (Sullivan Stapleton) to track down bad guys around the globe. But don't expect the action to extend to the bedroom.

"She's like a lioness who's been dropped in amongst silverbacks," says Mitra. "They won't mate."
