‘FBI’ Star Peregrym Says Role Gave Her A Crash Course About New York City

Imagine having to get busy and learn some new territory for an actor.

This very scenario happened for FBI star Missy Peregrym.

“Even the pilot was like Harlem, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Long Island,” she said in an interview with Gonzo Okanagan. “I’m like how big is this place, honestly?” Peregrym said.

“And I feel really misled by people who are like, ‘I’m from Brooklyn,'” she said. “I’m like it’s humongous. That tells me nothing. It’s a fascinating place.”

Now the actress plays Maggie Bell on the CBS police drama.

But she had to find a place to live in New York City and she had some specifics, too

“We really only had one spot we could get into,” the FBI actress explains, “because of the dog and having [it] furnished.

Peregrym Actually Thought She Was Going To Be Fired on Third Day on Set

Well, the move to The Big Apple actually could have turned much worse for the FBI star.

And she did have a moment where getting bounced from the show crossed her mind.

What happened? In a recent interview, Peregrym thought that Dick Wolf was going to fire her on Day 3 of shooting episodes for the first season.

“OK, showrunner Craig [Turk] tells me, ‘Just remember that a little boy died 36 hours ago.’ OK, that’s grief and sorrow,” Peregrym said. “Then all of a sudden we get pulled aside, me and Niels [Arden Oplev] and Peter [Jankowski], one of the producers was like, ‘Dick wants to talk to you right now.’ So I’m like, I’m getting fired.”

So, she and the crew walked around the set to chat with Wolf.

“The set’s stalled because we can’t do anything until me and Niels get back,” Peregrym said. “It felt like the walk of shame. I get over there and Dick just looks at me and goes, ‘You that motherf—er.’ And I’m like, ‘That’s a note, great.'”

What she did do was pull off the scene and keep her gig.
