Katic who recently appeared in The Spirit and Quantum Of Solace plays a smart, strong-willed detective in ABCs new drama, Castle, which premieres March 9.
Her role requires stunt work, and Katic is determined to do all the onscreen action herself even if it hurts.
The other day she fell while running after a perp, which left her with a big scab on her knee.
Katic explains, I had to Matrix it over this big box in the middle of a rooftop. I fell as I landed, but its okay, I was on a mission!
She refused to let the wipe-out get the best of her and insisted the crew keep the cameras rolling, which they did.
Katic assures she can handle the pain that comes with Castle because she grew up with four older brothers who played pretty rough.
So far, shes learned to shoot guns and taser people on the set, which earns her major cool points with her bros.
