Assassin thriller co-stars Shane West and will air on Thursdays in the fall
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.
