Americans haven’t seen much of Academy Award winning actress Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite) lately. She’s been tagged as one of “11 Actors Who Just Fell Off The Planet” with Freddie Prinze Jr. (I Know What You Did Last Summer) and Frankie Muniz (Malcom in the Middle) but she hasn’t quit acting. After raising four kids, she’s back working on her craft — this time on TV, or as the English like to say, the telly. Sorvino is starring in the new US-British drama series, Intruders on BBC America. Based on Michael Marshall Smith’s novel The Intruders, it’s about a secret society in Los Angeles “devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of others.” X-Files writer/producer Glen Morgan is in charge.
Sorvino told The Guardian about her work on Intruders: “It’s been one of the greatest acting challenges of my life.” She plays Amy Whelan, a lawyer and wife of a retired police officer (played by John Simm) who goes missing after being possessed.
