The new CBS dramatic thriller Intelligence tells the story of Gabriel (Josh Holloway), a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. As the first human ever to be connected directly into the global information grid, he can hack into any data center and access key intel. With an elite team, headed by Director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger), Gabriel and his partner, Secret Service agent Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), fight to protect the United States from its enemies.
To promote the show, actress Meghan Ory spoke to Collider on the L.A. based set for this exclusive interview about how she went from Once Upon a Time (she played Ruby/Red Riding Hood) to Intelligence, her secret desire to be a bad-ass, why Riley is such a great character, how this science is not too far in the future, how she thinks she’d do with a microchip in her own brain, and what she’s most proud of with the show. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
