FOCUS | MISSY PEREGRYM & ZEEKO ZAKI

I N CASE YOUWERE KEEPING SCORE, SPECIAL AGENTS MAGGIE BELL AND Omar Adom “OA” Zidan have been working to stop a drug cartel, domestic terrorists, a serial killer, and kidnappers on Season 3 of FBI . So what’s next? “I think Omar and Maggie die,” Missy Peregrym says. Her co-star Zeeko Zaki immediately chimes in, “No, we go to Mexico and then jet-set around the world in warm locations.” They’re joking (we think ). Still, it doesn’t take an elite crime-fighting unit to figure out why these two are so simpatico as partners on the hit procedural. Although Peregrym and Zaki seem like opposites on the surface—she’s a 38-year-old married mom and acting veteran who started as a fashionmodel in her native Canada; he’s a 31-year-old Egyptian American enjoying his first series-regular role—the two share a wicked sense of humor and love to rib each other. They’re also quick to lay on the praise. “It’s a gift when you get along with the people you work with,” she says. They both recently checked in en route to the New York City set. FBI airs Tuesdays at 9p.m. ET/PT on CBS and streams on Paramount+. cbswatchmagazine.com
