Character Bio

Phillip Jennings photo
Phillip Jennings (real name, Mischa) is a KGB spy posing as an American and living in the suburbs outside Washington, D.C. Ronald Reagan was just elected as president and labeled USSR "the evil empire". For years the Soviet Union trained Philip and his wife "Elizabeth" for a long term con. Phillip is a disparate Patriot who is wanting to serve his country against the threat of America. Phillip and Elizabeth were put into an arranged marriage and sent to America.

Philip was hurt when he discovered Elizabeth's affair with Gregory Thomas, but he and Elizabeth managed to get past that. Philip is a good friend of Agent Stan Beeman, who coincidentally lives across the street from them. Philip has a mutual respect for Stan though they have been through rough spots during their friendship. Philip has multiple identities, one of which is named Clark, who is actually married to Frank Gaad's secretary, Martha Hanson, whom he has used to get information. In Season 4, he is working to protect her from discovery.
