The newest entry in original drama from STARZ is predominantly an espionage thriller but for fans of sci-fi, there is an element of that thrown in as well, as the story is built around the idea that there is a parallel universe hidden from the world by a Berlin-based United Nations spy agency.

Counterpart, premiering Jan. 21, begins with an assassin crossing over from one dimension to the other and then time is of the essence to track her down to prevent a tragedy. To do so, Howard Silk (J.K. Simmons), normally a lowly cog at the agency, is called into the action, and for the first time in his life, becomes aware that there is another Howard on the other side, whose life parallels his but has taken a different turn.

Howard is thrust into a world of intrigue and danger, which includes a mysterious young woman named Clare (Nazanin Boniadi), who becomes a major lynchpin as the season unfolds. had a chance to speak to the former Homeland actress, who was born in Tehran, Iran and raised in London, England, about the new series, her favorite causes, and more.

This is more a spy thriller than sci-fi even though it has that one element to it. Why are we going to want to watch?

I was on Homeland so I have a little bit of experience with being on a spy thriller, but I think the thing that sets this apart is the metaphysical aspect. It’s like a genre mash up. It’s not just a traditional espionage show, but also it’s got some science fiction sprinkled all over it. What I love most about this is that it poses existential questions. It’s very philosophical, but at the same time it’s really grounded in the human experience.

It’s asking you questions about what if, identity, nurture versus nature, and destiny. Do we have power over our own destiny with our choices, or is it all predetermined? What sets it apart from other espionage shows is this idea of a parallel universe and another you.

Having seen four episodes, I still can’t put my finger on Clare. She’s this very mysterious character.

She’s exactly that. She’s very enigmatic. She is from the other side, obviously, and she’s Baldwin’s (Sara Serraiocco) [the assassin] handler. That’s how you see her in the first half of the season, and in later episodes, you learn more about her and her backstory. Episode 7 is a huge episode for her, in which she really comes into her own.

I would describe her as a soldier and I love this saying, this quote, “One man’s rebel is another man’s freedom fighter,” because it’s a matter of perspective. Is she a villain? It depends who you ask. So I love the complexity of this character. I love that she’s a strong female, multifaceted world character.

What happened to the other Clare, the one from this side?

I can’t talk about that.
