This week’s episode of USA’s spy drama Covert Affairs (Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET) is the most intense yet as CIA agent Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) infiltrates the FBI’s investigation of her former colleague Seth’s death – the one she was present for and which her boss Joan covered up. After watching her scenes with master manipulator Henry Wilcox (Gregory Itzin), you’ll understand why sitting in EW’s hot seat for our Pop Culture Personality was a piece of cake for Perabo, who confesses her first celebrity crush, her most prized pop culture possession (it came from Robert De Niro), and more. Watch the video below.
