The new sci-fi drama on FOX, The Gifted, is about a family with kids who possess mutant powers. While it sounds cool, it isn’t cool if you live in a world run by a hostile government that is trying to track you down. Luckily, the kids have awesome parents including mom, Caitlin “Kate” Strucker.
Kate is portrayed by Amy Acker. She’s known for her roles on Con Man (Dawn Jones), MacGyver (Sarah Adler), Person of Interest (Root/The Machine/Samantha Groves), Suits (Esther Edelstein), Alias (Kelly Peyton), and Angel (Illyria), among others. The Gifted airs Mondays at 9pm on FOX. Note: Acker is doing a cool thing on Instagram — she’s posting photos of all the people who work behind the scenes on The Gifted set with funny captions.
