Priyanka Chopra may be an internationally famous actress, but that can’t save her from getting held up and interrogated by airport officials.
“I always get stopped by security and immigration, telling me, ‘Tell me who the terrorist is or we won’t stamp your passport!'” the “Quantico” star told TheWrap with a big laugh.
“The last time that somebody did that to me — at LAX, actually — I was like, ‘Hey, don’t ever ask a brown girl that in an American airport!'”
On ABC’s “Quantico,” Priyanka Chopra plays Alex Parrish, a young FBI agent who is framed for committing a terrorist attack.
The drama series follows her character and other FBI recruits as they try to determine the mastermind. The fun part? Each of them hides a secret of his or her own, making it hard to pinpoint the actual perpetrator.
While Chopra makes protecting the planet from terrorists look effortless on screen, she made it clear that a lot of work goes into creating the show’s elaborate action scenes.
“Production is a lot of work. Nobody sent me that memo when they came to me to do television,” Chopra said. “Alex, you know, she’s saving the world!”
