Margarita Levieva - Jenny Franklin, In From the Cold 


In From the Cold is a thriller series created by Adam Glass. It follows Jenny, a single mother and former Russian KGB spy, secretly living in the United States. While on vacation in Europe with her daughter, her old life catches up with her when the CIA discovers her true identity, and takes a keen interest in her for her unusual physical abilities.


Jenny Franklin is a former Russian spy and assassin, named Anya Petrova and nicknamed The Whisper, who now lives a double life as an American citizen. Thanks to a mysterious substance she ingested on a mission when she was younger, she has acquired the ability to metamorphose and camouflage herself in any environment.
