The Blacklist Season 7 star Amir Arison has revealed the triplets who play Liz’s daughter, Agnes. Yes, triplets! It turns out that it takes three actresses to bring Liz Keen’s (Megan Boone) daughter to life on the drama. Arison, who plays Aram on The Blacklist, revealed the trio in a behind-the-scenes picture from the set.
Using multiples is a move commonly used by TV shows to play a single child character. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were not the first on Full House, and they will not be the last. The Blacklist’s Agnes Keen joins the list! Check out all three Agnes actresses in the picture from Amir Arison’s Instagram:
The triplets were not named in the photo, but Emily and Sarah Kell are credited with playing Agnes in The Blacklist Season 6 finale that aired in May 2019. What makes this reveal all the more interesting (not that it needed any help) is that The Blacklist did a storyline about multiples last season. What does this latest behind-the-scenes picture mean for Agnes Keen in Season 7?
Having the triplets present on set indicates Agnes could continue to have a presence after sparingly getting seen last season on The Blacklist. Agnes was never far from her mother’s thoughts or actions. However, it was not until the end of the season that Liz decided to bring her daughter home.
Back in Season 5, Liz had decided to put Agnes in the care of her mother-in-law/Tom’s mom, Scottie. That way, she would know her daughter was safe as she pursued revenge for her husband’s murder. Learning the truth behind Tom’s death did not hasten Agnes’ return. Instead, Liz discovered that Red was an imposter.
After that, all bets about bringing home Agnes were off yet again. Following a season of twist, turns, and Red’s near-execution, Liz thought she learned his “true identity” from her grandfather. She still had her doubts about Red being Ilya Koslov (she is not alone). However, she also felt confident enough about Red being a good guy to reunite with Agnes.
Liz continued to worry about her daughter’s safety after learning her mother was out there. Red indicated everything was okay on that front and Liz brought her daughter home at long last in The Blacklist’s Season 6 finale. The thing is, Red went to meet up with Katarina and she ended up kidnapping him. That opens the door to Liz’s worst fears about her mother coming true.
Will Liz send Agnes into hiding again? I hope not. It was so sweet to have Liz and her daughter reunited after having to spend so long apart. Of course, Liz has to think about Agnes’ safety, and with her mom willing to drug and kidnap her old friend, all bets are off.
