Anderson is a CIA military intelligence operative who lost his sight after sustaining injuries while serving as a Special Forces commando during the war in Iraq. "It's a tricky thing to do, and it's also something that is very important that you do right" says Gorham, explaining how he began working with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) before shooting of the pilot began in Toronto, and has been working with the CNIB ever since, to bring as realistic a portrayal to the screen as possible.
"Covert Affairs" finished its second season in December last year to record ratings, and a third season is on the way this summer. One of the keys to the show's success to date is the undeniable chemistry between him and leading lady and recent Golden Globe nominee Piper Perabo, who plays CIA field operative Annie Walker. Gorham attributes the spark between them to "the fact that we approach our work in a similar way. We both take what we do very seriously and work really hard at it, but neither one of us takes ourselves particularly seriously" laughs Gorham, adding that "we're able to have fun and keep things loose."
Talking with Gold Derby about the show and his highlight episodes from season two, Gorham agrees that the episode entitled "Half a World Away" is his best showcase, where Auggie, vacationing in Istanbul, is forced to relive the traumatic events in Iraq that led to him being brutally blinded. "You get to see what kind of soldier he was and what kind of man he was before he had his accident."
