Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Boris Kodjoe have claimed that their Undercovers characters have a strong relationship. The show focuses on Samantha and Steven Bloom, a married couple who retired as spies five years ago but are forced to return to the job to rescue an old friend.
Speaking in a video on the official site, Mbatha-Raw explained that Samantha is deeply in love with her husband. "If he wasn't listening, she'd probably say that he's kind of her hero," she said. "I mean, he's saved her on many occasions and he is the love of her life... I think that's in her heart of hearts. I don't know that she would always say that."
Meanwhile, Kodjoe said: "I think Steven would definitely say [Samantha] is the love of his life. She's his soulmate. I mean, she was the reason, supposedly, that he left the secret service - to live a regular life... But at the same time, I think he would describe her as someone he has tremendous amounts of fun with. They laugh a lot."
However, Kodjoe hinted that the relationship may face problems in the future, saying: "He loves her. He loves her more than life. And that's why it's going to be quite a challenge when they get back to the service."
