Dana Elcar played the corresponding role, Pete Thornton, on the original Richard Dean Anderson-fronted adventure series. Elcar’s Thornton though more of an administrative role would also join MacGyver on some missions and a strong friendship existed between the two men.

As to whether Patricia Thornton will form a similar sort of friendship with this new version of MacGyver remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out. If indeed the series lasts long enough.

Holt’s character will be introduced in the (rejiggered) series premiere, airing Friday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c. She joins a cast that currently includes series lead Lucas Till, George Eads (CSI) and Justin Hires (Rush Hour).

Having just made her debut on ‘Mr. Robot’ Season 2, Holt’s previous TV credits also include A&E’s ‘Damien’ and ‘The Returned’, plus CBS’ one-and-done ‘Hostages’.
