"Nikita"star Shane West will participate in C2E2 April 13-15 at McCormick Place in Chicago, stepping in for Maggie Q, who had to cancel due to the filming schedule for the final episodes of the CW series.
West plays Michael, the ex-Division agent who has teamed up with Nikita both romantically and in her quest to take down the the rogue spy agency. I will moderate the "Nikita" panel 1 p.m. Saturday in IGN Theater, when West and creator/executive producer Craig Silverstein will share insider secrets about the final episodes of Season 2 and will show an exclusive sneak peek and recap film.
I'll start out with some questions for the gents, but fans attending will get to ask their own questions, too. So come on out, but no heckling allowed, OK? At least not me. Heckle West.
"Nikita" returns with new episodes at 7 p.m. April 20.
