Alexander Skårsgard Is Sexy Danger in This The Little Drummer Girl Sneak Peek

Watch an exclusive clip from the limited series premiere

Liam Mathews

AMC's sexy limited series The Little Drummer Girl is powered by the chemistry between stars Alexander Skårsgard and Florence Pugh. Outlaw King's Pugh plays Charlie, a struggling British actress who gets recruited by Israeli intelligence for the role of a lifetime, while Big Little Lies' Skårsgard plays Becker, her handler, a suave spy with a dark past. This exclusive sneak peek from the series premiere is a showcase for Pugh's considerable acting chops, as she quickly moves from angry to frightened to resigned as Becker's driving gets crazier and she realizes he's taking her somewhere.

Here's a little more background: Charlie meets Becker while she's in Greece with her acting troupe, who have been hired for a tour by a mysterious benefactor. She's initially skeptical of his "international man of mystery" persona, but he's so mysterious and so sexy that when he invites her to come with him to Athens, she agrees. And then this scene happens. And what comes through that door is going to change her life forever.
