4. The characters will have edge.
Each of the characters who make up MacGyver's team have unique quirks and exceptional skills. Among them is hacker Riley Davis (played by Tristan Mays), hand-picked from prison by MacGyver and Jack Dalton to join their group.
"She's not your ordinary, nerdy computer hacker," explained Mays of her character. "She's an unexpected character that you wouldn't expect to be doing stuff like this."
Sandrine Holt echoed similar sentiments about her character, Patricia Thornton, the leader of these ragtag renegades. "[Patricia] is tightly-wound and a bit old-school," said Holt, adding that her character isn't afraid to roll up her sleeves when necessary.
