Quantico: Priyanka Chopra stars as coolly confident FBI trainee Alex in exclusive clip
In ABC’s upcoming thriller Quantico, Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra plays Alex, an FBI recruit who may or may not have masterminded a massive terrorist attack on New York City. But long before that attack happens, on her way to the training academy, she meets a handsome stranger on a plane named Ryan (Jake McLaughlin), and ends up, well, you’ll see.
In the exclusive clip above, Alex tells Ryan he’s not her type — immediately after their steamy tryst in his car. “If you were, I wouldn’t have [had sex with you],” she tells him. “I would have gotten to know you first.” She proceeds to list five things about him and challenges him to find any of them false, so he can ask her a question in return. (He fails.)
Ultimately, it’s a powerful move that both demonstrates Alex’s skills and upends the usual scenario, Chopra tells EW. “I love that Alex treats boys the way boys usually treat girls, as dispensable,” she says. “She has no place for them in her life.”
Quantico premieres Sunday, Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
