La Femme Nikita Trivia

La Femme Nikita was inspired by the 1990 French film classic of the same name. The film was also remade in the United States as, "Point Of No Return" in 1993. In both of those films, Nikita killed someone and was then found guilty. In the TV series, she didn't kill anybody but she still was found guilty!

For La Femme Nikita's first two seasons it was the highest rated series on any cable channel.

Peta Wilson was personally nominated for two awards for her role as Nikita. In 1998, she was nominated for a "Saturn Award" from the "Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films" as "Best Genre TV Actress". She lost that award to "Kate Mulgrew" for her role as "Captain Janeway" on the series, "Star Trek: Voyager". In 1999, Peta was nominated for a "Gemini Award" for "Best Performance by an Actress in a Continuing Leading Dramatic Role". She lost that award to "Arsinee Khanjian" as "Lena" on the series, "Foolish Heart".

In the TV series' first episode titled, "Nikita", there was a scene where Nikita is sliding down through a garbage chute in a restaurant. That film was actually from the U.S. remake movie, "Point of No Return".

In season one, all of the episode's titles are one word in length. In season two, they're all two words long. Season three ... three words, etc.

La Femme Nikita was romantically attracted to Michael Samuelle, her immediate superior at Section One. He acted as if he had feelings for her too, but it was never really clear whether his feelings were true or just a way to control her.

Peta Wilson was born in Sydney, canceled. Her father was a Canadian Army Warrant Officer so she spent much of her childhood moving from one assignment to another. She worked as a model before moving to Los Angeles, California to study acting and eventually landing her leading cast role on La Femme Nikita. Her hobbies include cricket, painting, horseback riding, swimming, scuba diving and gardening.

La Femme Nikita was actually canceled at the end of season four. The hard core Nikita fans went crazy! There were thousands of fans who signed an online "renew Nikita" petition. More than 25,000 letters were sent to Warner Bros. studios and to the USA Network. A full page in "The Hollywood Reporter" them to bring La Femme Nikita back for a fifth season. It worked (kind of) and resulted in a fifth season, but only with eight episodes. That's still amazing though as networks rarely pay any attention to petitions or letters. They make their decision on a purely dollar and cents basis. If they don't feel that the series will be profitable for another season or if they have another series that they feel would be more profitable, you can usually kiss the series goodbye no matter what. But once in a great while they are convinced to give the series another chance.

Don Franks played the role of "Walter" on La Femme Nikita but he originally auditioned for the role of "Operations".

During the third season, newly appointed USA Network President, "Stephen Chao", made the ridiculous request that professional wrestlers be cast as terrorists on La Femme Nikita as a way to promote the WWF whose bouts were also being broadcast on USA. It made no sense whatsoever as the show and wrestling had totally different audiences.

For those of you who didn't watch La Femme Nikita, you might know Alberta Watson better as "Erin Driscoll" on the "Day Four" season of the "24 TV Show".
