Fans of 24 may be split when it comes to Jack Bauer's romantic dilemma, but the show's newest heroine certainly isn't. Sarah Wynter, who plays amateur sleuth Kate Warner on Fox's Emmy-winning drama (airing tonight at 9 pm/ET), believes Kiefer Sutherland's widower character has mourned his murdered ex long enough.
"I'm pushing for us to get together," she tells TV Guide Online. "I keep nudging him. I'm like, 'Come on Kiefer, hurry up! [Your wife] died a year ago!' Enough time has past for a little looky-looky." Laughing, she adds: "That's looky-looky, not nooky-nooky."
Indeed, given 24's real-time premise the entire season takes place over the course of one day the 29-year-old Aussie actress acknowledges that "you can't really start a relationship. You can start looking, though.
"I've also been through a lot," adds Wynter, who has committed to another season of 24. "I'm probably not ready to jump right into something. There's a lot going on. My sister's in trouble, someone has tried to kill me, and there's a nuclear bomb." Excuses, excuses...
