New role in ‘The Hades Factor’ for CBS

Sophia Myles is heading for Toronto to shoot her scenes for a new role in a four-hour mini-series for America’s CBS. The full name of the project is ‘Robert Ludlum’s Covert One: The Hades Factor’. It is not yet listed on the IMDb but this is a summary of what I could find on the internet:

Mira Sorvino, Stephen Dorff, Anjelica Huston, Colm Meaney and Blair Underwood star in the small-screen adaptation of Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds’s 2000 bestselling novel of the same name, about a secret intelligence agency (“Covert One”) consisting of political and technical experts who fight corruption and conspiracy, reporting directly to the U.S. president. Mick Jackson is on board to direct the four-hour mini-series from a script by Elwood Reid. Production is expected to shoot in Toronto until December for an airdate next year. Filming will also take place in Paris and Berlin. As for plot specifics, “Hades” tracks the efforts of a disease specialist (and ex-agent of Covert One) named Col. Jonathan Smith (Stephen Dorff) who uncovers a conspiracy involving the President (Anjelica Huston) and her attempt to cover up the deliberate spread of an Ebola-like virus, which claimed the life of Smith’s fiancée. Mira Sorvino will play Rachel Russell, a Covert One agent who goes missing after killing two men, with Colm Meaney as a former spy and friend of Smith’s and Underwood as the No. 2 official at Covert One.

Sophia’s playing Stephen Dorff’s fiancée which is called Sophia Russell [edit]Dr. Sophie Amsden[/edit] and is an American scientist. She’ll be in Toronto for the coming 3 weeks. After ‘Art School Confidential’ this is her second collaboration with Anjelica Huston and also the second time she’s portraying an American character.
