You know him as:
Owen, a rogue agent working to take down Division by hunting down the "black boxes" that contain the organization's most confidential data.
Why we like him:
Confession: "Nikita" isn't necessarily a can't-miss show for us. Unless
, of course, we're anticipating a return appearance from Sawa, in which case you can bet we'll be watching, and that our DVRs have been double-checked. Owen's complicated relationship with Nikita adds a much-needed layer to her character, and his complicated relationship with vengeance keeps us grounded in the more human aspects of the story when things become a little too outrageous. We never thought the kid from "Little Giants" would be able to pull off action sequences like this, but Sawa holds his own next to Maggie Q, making crazy stunts look like second nature. Basically, we don't understand why he's not a series regular.
Where else you've seen him:
Let's be real, you totally fell in love with him as Junior in "Little Giants" and you thought Christina Ricci was the luckiest girl ever
for working with him in "Casper" and "Now and Then." Later, Sawa's career aged up with "Idle Hands" and "Final Destination" -- and who can forget his turn as the title character in Eminem's awesome music video for "Stan"?
