Tran was introduced as a recurring new character in the second half of the third season designed to help fill the void left by the departure of series’ original co-lead George Eads.
Tran, who appeared in seven episodes, plays Desiree Nguyen (Desi), who joined the Phoenix Foundation to protect MacGyver (Lucas Till) and his team on their global missions.
MacGyver, produced by CBS TV Studios, co-stars Tristin Mays, Justin Hires and Meredith Eaton. In other changes for next season, Terry Matalas is replacing Craig O’Neill as exec producer/co-showrunner alongside Peter Lenkov. James Wan, Henry Winkler and Lee Zlotoff also executive produce. CBS TV Studios produces in association with Lionsgate.
Tran is repped by LINK Entertainment, Daniel Hoff Agency and Hirsch.
