"They’re going to have to upDATE my file."
Description: Peta Wilson as Nikita (Code name: Josephine) speaks to a terroist while on assignment on the spy adventure LA FEMME NIKITA/USA/1997-2001.
The terorist tries to convince Nikita that she can’t pull the trigger because he has read her file and knows she doesn’t have what it takes to kill someone in cold blood. Nikita replies, “They’re going to have to upDATE my file” and wastes the bad guy.
Nikita is a tall, blonde level 2 Field Op assassin woman reluctantly recruited as an assassin for a covert anti-terrorist group called Section One.
Nikita reveals her story as follows:
"I was falsely accused of a hideous crime [killing a police officer] and sentenced to life in prison. One night I was taken from my cell to a place called Section One, the most covert anti-terrorist group on the planet. Their ends are just, but their means are ruthless. If I don't play by their rules, I die."
Nikita reports to Michael Samuelle (Roy Dupuis) who is her mentor, trainer and lover. They both reported to a supervisor called Operations and his second-in-command Madeline, a master strategist.
When the phone rings and Nikita hears the code word "Josephine" she is drawn into a world of anti-terrorism and intrigue.
