The BBC hit Torchwood is crossing the globe, both by airing on Starz and by taking the story global. Mekhi Phifer joins the team as a CIA agent investigating the Miracle Day, where nobody is able to die. I caught up with Phifer after a presentation to the Television Critics Association for Torchwood: Miracle Day...


... Crave Online: You’ve played some agency guys before. What are the similarities and differences with Rex?

Mekhi Phifer: "I was on Lie to Me with Tim Roth before. I played an FBI agent. FBI’s a lot more suit and tie. Even though my character’s unorthodox, he’s more by the book. CIA gives you so much room to breathe because it’s hard to define what a CIA agent does at all times. They’re international, they’re all over the place, it’s a very vast job description, which I love about that. Then having the freedom of that allows the character to go to all kinds of places. I’m really looking forward to exploring that, then being on cable as well gives us even that much more leeway than a network would give us..."
