Maggie Q: Dog Lover & Valentine’s Day Date
Each week, actress and action star Maggie Q kicks some serious butt on her CW series Nikita. Maggie portrays the title role, a trained assassin who goes rogue in order to take down a corrupt government agency. When Maggie isn’t hunting down evil agents, however, she’s a shoe lover and an animal rescue advocate.
Maggie joined Kelly and Michael in a great pair of shoes that had Kelly feeling rather jealous of her wardrobe. Then, Michael shared a picture from Maggie’s Twitter account of her Valentine’s Day date. No, he wasn’t a hunky Hollywood star, but an adorable pooch that Maggie planted a big kiss on.
“That’s not even my dog,” she admitted. The dog belongs to a Nikita fan that Maggie recently befriended when the show filmed in her neighborhood. Now, Maggie wants to steal her dog and add him to her family of rescue pups. Maggie cares a lot about animal welfare and often shares her love of dogs with the Twitter community. Her dogs even have their own Twitter accounts!
