From Bollywood to now Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra has more than 60 acting credits to her name — but some roles have stood out more than others.
In an interview with Paper magazine, Chopra — who is the cover girl for Fall 2017 Beautiful People issue — opened up about one of her favorite roles. While she didn’t pick a true number one (with so many fabulous roles to choose from, including Meghna Mathur in Fashion or Victoria Leeds in Baywatch, we can’t blame her for not narrowing it down to one pick), she couldn’t help but show some love to her Quantico character, FBI recruit Alex Parrish.
It’s clear that Chopra has a soft spot for the agent.
“I love playing Alex Parrish,” Chopra told Paper. “She’s one of my favorite characters I’ve played because she’s such an empowered, modern, unapologetic girl. She just lives her life. She’s broken. I just love what she stands for.”
The actress and singer (Chopra recently released a new single called “Young and Free”) is spot on with her description of Alex Parrish. Come season three of Quantico, Chopra will be reprising her role as the lead on the ABC series, and although there will be fewer episodes this time around, there’s no question she’ll be delivering the drama.
In fact, this season Chopra will have her work cut out for her, now that there have been a few casting changes, and a general reworking of the series according to Quantico boss Michael Seitzman.
While Yasmine Al Massri and Pearl Thusi will no longer be on the show, Marlee Matlin is joining the FBI team and Chopra is totally on board with the new addition — even giving Matlin a shoutout on Twitter earlier this year.
Quantico season 3 is set for a midseason premiere.
