The whole world, it seems, has fallen in love with PC! The American media just can’t seem to have enough of Quantico’s Alex Parrish, calling her “charismatic” and an “arresting lead”. Quantico is Priyanka’s debut on American TV, in which she plays a young FBI recruit who finds herself implicated for a major terror strike on the US soil.
The much-awaited ABC TV drama premiered in the US on Sunday. The first episode of Quantico will air in India on October 3.
Priyanka will be seen on popular American late-night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, created and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. A fellow guest on the show was Matt Damon. Priyanka took to Twitter to share the news with her fans.
The New York Times praised Chopra as the “strongest human asset in Quantico”. “Ms Chopra, a Bollywood superstar and former Miss World is immediately charismatic and commanding amid the otherwise generic ensemble. If there is a problem with her casting, it is that she may come across as too seasoned and assured to be persuasive as a shaky, neophyte recruit.”
Variety said, “With an arresting lead in Priyanka Chopra, a former Miss World who was born in India, the show races through a lot of material very quickly, which makes it difficult to get a firm handle on where all of this might settle.”
The Wrap called Chopra as someone having “a poise and sexual spark as Alex that suggests a formidable potential FBI agent whose mind and beauty are equally stunning”.
Salon, meanwhile, termed a piece on her as, “Cool, charismatic, complex Alex Parrish — the Indian-American heroine I’ve been waiting for.”
