Villages’ Megan Boone starts seventh season of hit NBC series ‘Blacklist’

The Villages’ own Megan Boone is starting her seventh season of the hit NBC series “Blacklist,” according to a recent post on social media.

The 36-year-old actress took to Instagram to share a photo from the set of the newest season of the hit series that has seen her grow from an aspiring silver screen actress to a full-fledged small-screen starlet.

Boone, who was joined in the photo by her costars Amir Arison, Harry Lennix, Hisham Tawfiq and Diego Klattenhoff, joked that the set photo was a contest to see “who picks the best filter.”

After spending a few years supporting causes ranging from gun control to environmental issues, The Villages-raised actress recently took a step back from social media and deleted her Twitter account. Before deleting her account, Boone had taken to the social media platform to launch an environmentally friendly line of baby clothing, as well as lend her voice to Florida’s most recent election recount, in addition to voicing her opposition to a multitude of issues that may have rippled some waves with her Villages-based family.

Since deleting her account, Boone has taken to Instagram to share photos and updates of her life, but has still remained fervent of her support for climate change initiatives.

“On the last day of this legislative session New York, the third-largest economy & fourth most populous state in the US, passed a bill to adopt the most ambitious climate targets in the country. It is ready for the signature of @nygovcuomo and I am optimistic about his leadership,” said Boone in an Instagram post last month.

The Blacklist, which sees Boone star alongside the likes of Emmy-award winning actor James Spader, has been a smash hit for NBC since it first aired in 2013. The show, which plans to premiere its seventh season on October 4, is the third longest running drama on the network, just behind Chicago Fire and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, which celebrates its 20th year on air.
