The actress is Dana Walsh, the new agent who 'desperately' hides a skeleton in the closet despite her poised personality.
The first look of Katee Sackhoff on "24" has been shared as some promotional photos that expose individual characters are released by FOX. The actress is a new addition to the CTU team, being placed as an analyst named Dana Walsh. The role is not only recurring but regular.
Dana will work side by side with Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer. The character is described as "a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst at the new and improved New York branch of CTU." She reportedly will be entangled in a romantic relationship with field agent Davis Cole who is played by another new regular, Freddie Prinze Jr.
The eighth season of "24" will premiere on January 17, 2010. It will unfold in New York City amidst the shadows of the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations. In this new day, CTU has been upgraded and is run by MBA-schooled and razor-sharp head honcho Brian Hastings.
