Goran Visnjic as Garcia Flynn

NBC caused quite a stir with their announcement that the thrilling action-adventure series “Timeless” will not be returning for a second season. Then a few days later, the network took back its first announcement that the show was canceled and ordered ten more episodes of the second season. Fans of the series were delighted when it was revealed that the series will be coming back. The show bands together with a group of unlikely heroes: Lucy the professor, Wyatt the soldier and Rufus the pilot. The unlikely trio travels through time to stop Garcia Flynn, a master criminal (Goran Visnjic) from changing the course of human history with potentially catastrophic results. Even though he is on the run with a stolen time machine, he is still likable and relatable characters.

When it comes to television roles, the profile of the hero has changed over the years. Series are now dominated by character actors’ with relatively unattractive appearance, which is sort of a problem for the handsome Goran Visnjic. As soon as some interesting engagement comes up, his attractive physique gets in the way.

Recently he played the self-denying husband in the series 'Extant', but he realized that hardly anyone notices him because of the main star Halle Berry, and his character was killed at the beginning of the second season. Goran Visnjic left a much better impression in the series 'Red Widow', where he played a handsome mobster, Nicholai Schiller, where he proved his knowledge of the martial arts. Here he played a character that is far from a romantic good guy, and the audience still found him to be quite intriguing. The series, unfortunately, lasted for only one season.

However, the concept of such character seems to have moved in “Timeless”. Once again Visnjic plays someone you shouldn’t be rooting for, but because ofhis natural charisma and the character’s quality, instead of fearing him, the audience respects him. It’s no coincidence that he is at the center of attention in so many episodes. His plans for altering the course of history are never fully realized, but Lucy Preston (Abigail Spencer) is sensitive to Flynn’s motives, and sooner or later the moment will come for them to help each other.
