Actress Megan Boone starred as FBI agent Elizabeth Keen on NBC's The Blacklist. But Boone made her final appearance as a regular cast member in the season eight finale on June 23, 2021. Her absence in season 9, after eight full seasons with the critically acclaimed show, has many wondering if she will be back and what the reason for her departure could be.
#1. Who is Megan Boone?
Megan Boone is a 38-year-old American actress, originally from Petoskey, Michigan. However, she grew up in a retirement community in Florida called The Villages because her parents wanted to live closer to her grandparents.
Her grandfather, American billionaire Harold Gary Morse, was the developer of the said town. This community is notorious for being home to swingers.
Swingers are individuals with a s**ual proclivity to swapping mates for an evening. There is even a documentary about this community, which appeared at Sundance, titled Some Kind of Heaven. Today, Megan stands at 5’5” (165 cm), and she is mostly of German and English descent with Dutch and Scottish also thrown in. She gained her interest in acting at the age of seven when her grandparents took her to a Broadway play in New York City starring Nathan Lane.

James Spader portrays Raymond (Red) Reddington, a criminal mastermind who unexpectedly begins working with law enforcement, and Megan Boone plays FBI agent Liz. The synopsis declares that Liz must contemplate how far she will go to figure out Reddington's motives and true intentions. It continues that the rift between Reddington and Liz will cause destruction to those around them, including the Task Force they built up.
