In the Archer world, the espionage is the bedrock. This successful long-running TV show has help from main and recurring figures. Katya Kasanova is a challenging character with interesting things to tell. The Russian Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti (KGB) or Committee for State Security is also part of the story, and some of its best agents interact with ISIS.
A sexy agent
When all fans are totally convinced that Archer cannot have pure feelings for a woman, his story with Katya reveals something different. Katya is a sexy and seductive Russian woman that works for the KGB.
She is blonde, has green eyes and a sexy voice given by Ona Grauer. She is almost always in white, and her way of dressing makes male characters of the series see her “smokin’ hot”. However, women like Malory and Lana think she is a “manipulative bitch”.
Lana for ISIS, and Katya for the KGB. These two female characters are action girls with fantastic skills for getting access to confidential information, sabotaging missions and killing with no problem when they have to.
