HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/2/23 – “I think the struggle of balancing the sort of work life, which in this case is…espionage abroad in foreign territories…and that home life of having an intimate relationship with someone, especially when you have a child,” says Blacklist Redemption star Ryan Eggold. “Becoming a father, when he never really had a father, is also something interesting. But anyways, that balance between the work and the personal is something we’re going to wrestle with.”
“Going into this new world is incredibly immersive for him and pulls him out of that life with Liz and with Agnes,” says Blacklist Redemption star Ryan Eggold. “But, at the same time, he has a baby girl with this woman, and they have a relationship. And I think that’s especially important for Tom Keen because he never had a family. He never had intimate relationships. He was a guy who was orphaned and trained to be good at killing people and manipulating people and being a spy. So I think this love with Liz is important to him. So it’s not going to go away lightly.”
In The Blacklist: Redemption, the world’s most elusive criminals from Red’s infamous list come together to form an elite mercenary team. They are trying to regain their self-worth after a lifetime of inflicting damage on the world. Seeking redemption for their past transgressions, this new group solves problems governments won’t dare touch.
Ryan Eggold is Blacklist undercover operative Tom Keen. His cunning chief is Susan Hargrave, president of Halcyon Aegis, a private military company. Lethal assassin and Tom’s nemesis, Matias Solomon joins as they aim to be a force for good.
Tawny Cypress is international criminal Nez Romwan, a navy and nuclear weapons expert who along with Tom, Susan, Matias and other highly skilled members will undertake impossible missions.
