Eva-Jane Willis On FBI: International
Before Christiane Paul left FBI: International, her character, Katrin Jaeger, received a promotion during the season finale episode “Crestfallen” and would no longer be working with The Fly Team. While Jaeger made her exit because it was written in the script of the show, the reason for Christiane’s departure was unknown as of this writing.
Jaeger’s exit from The Fly Team meant a new Europol agent would be joining the squad. Before the show’s Season 2 premiere, it was announced that Eva-Jane Willis would be joining FBI: International as Agent Megan “Smitty” Garretson, replacing Christiane’s position.
Eva-Jane’s character, Megan Garretson, is hoped to bring a different energy to the CBS show. According to TV Insider, Megan is a seasoned undercover agent and master of disguise who previously worked a massive operation called Trojan Shield with Fly Team leader Scott Forrester in Europe. She also considers Jaeger her personal hero.
Moreover, Megan would be dealing with the murderer of the American police detective on the federal task force, who was murdered in Paris while he was investigating a US company suspected of selling illegal weapons in France and the Middle East, in her first Season 2 case.
