In the MacGyver episode “Jet Engine + Pickup Truck,” Mac (Lucas Till) and Jack (George Eads) and the team find themselves in a Nigerian village. They need to find a way to extinguish a massive oil wellhead fire set by a rebel group. While Jack drives a pickup truck very fast, Mac uses a cassette player and a plastic bucket to get away. Former CIA agent and member of The Phoenix Foundation Samantha Cage is sitting between the two men in the truck.
Samantha Cage is portrayed by Isabel Lucas. The Australian-born actress is known for her roles on Emerald City (Anna), and in the films The Loft (Sarah Deakins), Electric Slide (Pauline), and Red Dawn (Erica Martin), among others. Lucas also starred in Ed Sheeran’s 2012 music video “Give Me Love” (see below). She made her U.S. acting debut in the 2009 film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Alice). MacGyver airs Fridays at 8pm on CBS, right before Hawaii Five-0.
