The lethal assassin frequently known as Nikita has taken many forms.
In Luc Besson's 1990 film, "La Femme Nikita," she looked a lot like Anne Parillaud.
In John Badham's "Point of No Return," she resembled Bridget Fonda.
In the long-running TV series, she was embodied by Peta Wilson.
Now, in 2010, Maggie Q ("Live Free or Die Hard") has become the new Nikita and The CW has given the show that bears her name the coveted 9 p.m. time slot on Thursday nights after "The Vampire Diaries."
Check out the first clip of the sexy thriller, premiering this fall.
