Shane West teases 'Nikita' character

Shane West


Nikita star Shane West has claimed that his character may not be as villainous as he first appears.

The actor plays mysterious Division operative Michael, who shares a secret past with Nikita (Maggie Q).

He told the Los Angeles Times: "Michael's not inherently a bad guy, at all. He's doing some things that I think he started off believing in, and now he's a little unsure. But he does have a good heart."

West added that his character's loyalties are "very complicated" and that he considers the Division to be "kind of his family [with] the recruits".

He also admitted that he is uncertain about the specifics of Michael and Nikita's past.

"He trained her [and] helped her out when she joined Division," he explained. "We haven't got into the details of [their history] yet and we're not necessarily sure where it's going to go."

Nikita will premiere on September 9 on The CW.
