Naya means "new" in Hindi (नया).
Naya Temple is portrayed by Betty Gabriel (Get Out, The Purge:Election Year, Westworld).
In her nine years with FBI counterintelligence, Naya exposed four spy rings including 22 Chinese and Russian agents.
She is a Muslim and a woman of color and says her status as an outsider allows her to understand the spies she’s hunting. Naya says she sees the world the way they see the world with their "nose pressed against the glass".
