After clocking up roles in 24, Alias and Hannibal, Gina Torres, 44, now kicks legal ass in Suits and is the subject of a web campaign to play Wonder Woman.
"It isn't often that an actress gets the opportunity to embody so rich a character.
Thanks to Aaron Korsh's wonderful writing and his singular vision of Jessica, I believe that together we created a woman who has everything.
Though “Eva Sofia Valdez” didn’t go all the way, the network kept an eye on Torres and found a spot for her with “The Catch” bringing her back into the ABC fold.
The actress has been on ABC’s watch for quite some time, having had an arc on “Revenge’s” final season and a guest spot on an episode of “Castle.” Torres’ character details on “The Catch” are being kept under wraps. “The Catch,” which returns to ABC midseason, hails from executive producers Allan Heinberg, Shonda Rhimes, Betsy Beers and Julia Anne Robinson.
It's all still very much in the early stages of development, although enthusiasm for the project is said to be high, which suggests that its chances of being picked up fully as a series are strong. Last fall, it was announced that Gina Torres was leaving "Suits" after five and a half seasons.
