The reboot of 'Charlie's Angels' premieres tonight at 10PM ET on ABC, and Minka Kelly stopped by 'Live With Regis & Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) to talk about the show and her character Eve.
Apparently the show's producers wanted to cast Kelly so badly that they re-wrote the script to fit her talents. "It's funny because they had to write this new character. The character that they had written I didn't fit, so I was blessed and lucky enough for them to come up with Eve," Kelly said.
The show then cut to a clip from the 'Angels' premiere, which gave some details on Eve's backstory. She was raised in an orphanage in El Salvador after her parents, American aid workers, were killed in the country's civil war. She's also been a car-thief, and though she didn't mention it in the clip, a marine. "I'm not gonna bet the cards I've been dealt. If you want to survive, you have to adapt," Eve says. Adapt from orphan to angel, specifically.
