Last night NBC premiered their new action-drama TAKEN at 10/9C. Before any action took place on the screen, I got a chance to chat with one of the series regulars, Gaius Charles.

    Charles is best known as Brian “Smash” Williams from the critically acclaimed NBC series “Friday Night Lights.

    While enjoying a delectable meal at Chicago’s hot spot, STK,  I had a chance to find out what audience’s can expect.

    Gaius Charles plays John, a member of the special opps team and Hart’s right-hand man. He is a natural-born leader, methodical and ferociously loyal.  He’s also a reformed gang member.

    Press dinner with Gaius Charles from the new NBC series Taken. Tune in the premiere tonight after The Voice.

    From the looks of last night’s premiere, it seems audiences will become “taken” with this hot show fairly quickly.
