Melinda Clarke (Amanda) says we’ll see more of her character’s background if Nikita makes it past the first season. She tells EW, “I think that there’s been tiny little moments of it, but the writers definitely have consciously not explored Amanda’s past too much,” Clarke says. “All of these things should and will be explored, assuming we’re fortunate enough to have future seasons.”
You know, there are lots of reasons we want Nikita to make it to another season, but believe it or not, a chance to really hang out in Amanda’s psyche isn’t one of them. We feel like it’s probably not pretty in there.
