Sendhil Ramamurthy has promised that viewers will discover more about his character on USA Network spy drama Covert Affairs.
The actor told Collider that the background of Jai Wilcox will be revealed in the fifth episode, due to air on August 10.
"They wrote the first four episodes before I was cast, so they more or less slot me into them," he explained. "I'm peppered through the first four [but] the fifth episode is my episode."
He added: "That's when you find out everything about Jai and why he is the way he is. You'll learn about his background and what it is that he's going to be doing for the whole season."
Ramamurthy also revealed that he was already filming on Covert Affairs when he discovered that his previous show Heroes had been axed by NBC.
"We found out Heroes was cancelled while I was shooting the third episode, so I was never unemployed," he said. ”We all knew there was a chance Heroes wouldn't be back, so we were all covering our butts a little bit, and it worked out."
Covert Affairs continues on Tuesdays at 10/9c on USA.
