Gabriel Basso has practiced martial arts since he was a child. He’s done Taikwondo, kickboxing and May Thai and the 28-year-old is now learning grappling.
I tend to stay in shape in real life and I fight a lot in real life and I train a lot, What was difficult is that stunt fighting is sort of its own martial arts. Movements have to be bigger and punches have to be wider—they have to cross the lens. That was a little gear I had to change. — Gabriel Basso talking about The Night Agent to Tudum.
The Night Agent exploded onto the Netflix charts in its first week, with the third highest series debut on the global streamer, after Wednesday and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. The political thriller was quickly renewed for season 2.
Inspired by Matthew Quirk’s novel, The Night Agent follows low-level FBI agent, Peter Sutherland (Gabriel Basso), who works in the basement of the White House, manning a phone that never rings — until the night that it does, pulling him into a conspiracy that ultimately leads to the Oval Office.
Rose Larkin (Luciane Buchanan) is a young tech CEO who’s fallen on hard times and retreats to her aunt and uncle’s house to take stock of her life. When assassins come for her aunt and uncle, she quickly learns they weren’t who they seemed to be and finds herself with Peter, both of them running for their lives.
The Night Agent filmed for four months in metro Vancouver last year: from mid-February to mid-June.
Showrunner: Shawn Ryan.
Cast: Gabriel Basso, Luciane Buchanan, Hong Chau, DB Woodside, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eve Harlow, Phoenix Raei, Enrique Murciano, Sarah Desjardins.
