Fringe: Jasika Nicole Hints at Astrid's Secrets

When Jasika Nicole auditioned for J.J. Abrams' Fringe (Tuesdays, 9 pm/ET, Fox), she was told it was for a sci-fi series that incorporated humor. As FBI Special Agent Astrid Farnsworth, though, Nicole isn't exactly given a lot of the punchlines, saddled as she is with doing a lot of the heavy lifting in the laboratory of mad scientist Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble). With a background in music theater and a talent for drawing (check out her work, including an autobiographical comic, on her website), Jasika (it's pronounced Jah-SEEK-uh) talks to us about working with John Noble, why Astrid returned to the lab and her theory about the identity of the elusive William Bell.
