TORONTO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Piper Perabo just loves playing rough on the job.

Perabo – of Coyote Ugly fame – plays a rookie CIA agent in the new USA Network series, Covert Affairs, premiering July 13, and gets a real rush out of “jumping off roofs, cars, and buildings” for her action-packed gig.

The actress was a “tomboy” growing up, so the “lock-picking and explosives” on the spy show come naturally to her.

But although she’s game for any stunt – including physical combat – Perabo hasn’t been able to totally spread her wings just yet.

She confesses that a professional stuntwoman recently took over as her double in a scene where she’s supposedly jumping out of a plane because producers weren’t keen on letting Perabo take the plunge.

However, for future filming, there’s one specific stunt she’ll stand her ground on.

Perabo jokes, “I insist on doing all the love-making scenes myself.”
