Celebuzz 'Nikita' Preview: Devon Sawa Joins The Team More Permanently...

As Owen on The CW’s Nikita, Devon Sawa has always been something of mystery. Yet he is one of Nikita’s (Maggie Q) most trusted confidantes now that there is a new Division running things and Michael (Shane West) is removing himself from field duty. Owen is stepping in as Nikita’s right-hand man on missions, which Sawa said will create a kind of fish-out-of-water experience for his character, as well as some room to play with new dynamics among all of the characters.

“We have this one scene in the beginning where we walk into an art gallery, and Owen’s all [puffed up], and Michael has to kind of say to him ‘Hey man, this is how you have to go in.’ Because you know, Michael’s the James Bond, and Owen is kind of a thug,” Sawa said when I caught up with him in Los Angeles, Calif.

“He has to learn to work as a part of the team and how to take orders. Taking orders from Michael is probably the toughest [adjustment], but he’ll do it because these are his friends; he and Nikita have such a history, they have each others’ backs; and he needs to step up and help here.”
