Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) has joined the cast of CBS’ MacGyver reboot, which debuts this fall. 

Holt will play ex-field agent Patricia Thornton, the director of operations for the Department of External Services (DXS). Per the network, Thorton “doesn’t let the title ‘Boss’ stand in her way and is always willing to join the team in the field – meaning that she’s not going to let those under her have all the fun.” She will make her debut in the series premiere. 

Holt was most recently seen in the Mr. Robot season two premiere, where she played Evil Corp’s general counsel Susan Jacobs. Her other credits include Fear the Walking DeadThe Art of More, and Hostages. 

MacGyver premieres Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
