Is she the first (really) pregnant action hero?
Alias fans were all anxiously awaiting last Thursday’s season premiere of Alias to see how the show would handle Jennifer Garner’s pregnancy. It had been speculated and possibly confirmed that her character CIA agent Sydney Bristow would be pregnant as well but how the show would handle it would not be known until the show aired.
Unlike other shows that either hide an actor’s pregnancy or work around it, Alias is unique in that the plotline this season will actually revolve around Sydney’s pregnancy, although initially, they considered another state of the art option. They thought about digitally cutting and pasting Jennifer’s head onto the body of another actor. Luckily, they decided to let Sydney be pregnant.
