I went to action school in order to prepare for her stunt scenes. She’s such a bright, unpredictable character that I also worked to raise the tone of my voice.”
Lee Chung Ah plays Jamie, an FBI detective who returns to the land of her birth after being adopted as a child. She said, “I’m currently struggling to learn a foreign language. My character has to be more comfortable with speaking English.”
