ABC Cancels Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Quantico’
Priyanka Chopra had a superb run with her ABC show Quantico in which she played a gun wielding, shield waving FBI agent in training. Along the way she picked up awards, fans and lots of love. She looked fabulous in the role and people loved her. She won not one but two Peoples Choice Awards back to back. But like everything else, the show is coming to an end. The last episode of the current season will be aired sometime in mid July.
Fun fact: Quantico was the original title for the American show that was later named “Criminal Minds”. The makers throught that Quantico was not a catchy enough name.
The show started in 2015. Priyanka Chopra plays the main lead Alex Parrish, an FBI recruit who becomes a prime suspect in a terrorist attack. The show received positive reviews and great ratings and till date remains a profitable show for ABC. The ratings have however dropped over a period of time and the handling of the dual timeline of the show has been criticized as well.
Apart from the show’s success, Priiyanka Chopra’s portrayal of Alex Parrish received great appreciation. She looked stunning, played the part with style and provided the entertainment that was expected. She became the first south Asian to win the People’s Choice awards for Most Favorite Actress. And she won it twice. Chopra became a known face and became popular with the American audience.
Fun Fact: Priyanka once revealed that when she was flying, she was once taken aside by an airport TSA agent and asked about the identity of the terrorist on her show. The agent teased that he would not return her passport until she agreed to his request. Priyanka confessed that she disclosed the identity, but only on condition that the agent keep it secret.
Priyanka has created a great identity for herself through this show and her negative lead in the movie “Baywatch” starring Dwayne Johnson AKA The Rock.
