ALL MY CHILDREN bad boy William deVry (ex-Michael) is literally back in action this week as his storyline kicks off on the CW’s NIKITA. Speaking to Soaps In Depth from the set using his best Irish accent, deVry provided the deets about his new villainous character, Patrick Miller. “I’m playing a guardian. He’s the keeper of secrets and a very important pawn in the game of espionage,” the actor confides.
In the recurring role — “It looks like I’m doing six episodes and counting,” he shares — deVry will have the opportunity to strut his stuff like never before. “I was introduced in the last episode, but the story really starts this Friday with a big reveal. And a lot of action right away,” he says of the mid-season finale airing this Friday, December 2, at 8 p.m. EST “I’m doing all my own stunts, running, knife fights, gun shooting, and blowing ’em up!” NIKITA will return to the CW on Friday, January 6.
In the meantime, deVry is also currently starring as the head of an inept government spy agency in the Canadian sit-com INSECURITY. The primetime series is now in its second season, but fans can catch up with the 2-DVD set. When he wraps his current projects, the actor is headed to HBO’s THE TRANSPORTER where he’s been tapped for yet another intriguing role. “It’s a corrupt CIA agent,” deVry laughs. “I’ve been going from playing a smart ass to a bad ass.”
