Piper Perabo has never shied away from playing gay.
“I was talking with Lena because I want there to be a female assassin that Annie has to hunt down. And I was like ‘Baby, you could play a female assassin. That would be amazing!’” Piper said. “I just think she’s such a butt-kicker she’d be killer at it. And she’s good at accents and foreign languages.”
Piper and Lena starred together twice — first in The Cave, and then in the lesbian-themed relationship dramedy Imagine Me and You.
“Lena won’t talk about it, but we’d already done The Cave together,” Piper said. “She pretends like that movie never happened but it did so we were already friends. We started out friends doing [Imagine Me & You]. We just had such a great time. London was beautiful that fall. It was so great.”
As for if she had any other women in mind for future dalliances, she said “Lena again. Thandie Newton. I think she’s real ‘ooh-la-la!’”
And will her Covert Affairs character Annie will ever have any lesbian liaisons of her own? “You never know who you’re going to have to seduce to get information in the CIA,” Piper said.
Covert Affairs will return for a second season this summer on USA.
