I love talking with Aaron Stanford. He claims he’s a normal guy that doesn’t understand technical stuff all that well, yet he pulls off playing a technical genius on Nikita oh so well and tries to take time to comprehend what he’s saying. He reads up, as he describes here when he first heard about the “new hand” technology that his character Birkhoff had to use for Michael. He at first thought they were pushing a line, but it turns off they weren’t really that far off.
There are a couple of teasers here, including the promise of a background story for Birkhoff, even if they only have six episodes to wrap things up. That would be awesome!
This interview took place in the Nikita press room at Comic Con on July 19, 2013.
