Michael Ealy has claimed that his Good Wife character Derrick Bond is extremely enigmatic.

Bond arrived on the show when his law firm merged with Lockhart Gardner.

"You just never quite know his intentions," Ealy told TV Guide. "That's where it becomes a bit tricky. He refuses to show his real self. No-one knows where they stand with Bond."

Ealy added: "He's definitely on an island by himself, but he's constantly talking about togetherness and moving as a unit. Those are the kinds of people you have to watch."

Ealy also revealed that Bond will act as a mentor for Alicia (Julianna Margulies).

"Derrick shows her that sometimes you have to be a little bit amoral to get things done," he said. "What it means to really be a lawyer is that sometimes you have to make really had decisions that don't make emotional or moralistic sense."

However, Ealy explained that he enjoys playing Bond, saying: "He's intriguing, mysterious, he's in charge, and it's more fun to play someone who other people can't figure out."

The Good Wife continues on Tuesdays at 10/9c on CBS.
