I hate the living.
—Laurel Weaver

If saving the world was easy, anyone could do it.
—Agent L

Agent L (also called Elle, or just L, originally Dr. Laurel Weaver) is a former agent of the MiB. She is a beautiful but cynical deputy medical examiner. She joined MiB after Agent K was neuralyzed, so she became Agent J's new partner. In the original film, she was played by Linda Fiorentino.


Before MiB

Laurel in the morgue

In the background, she played a large part before becoming an agent. Laurel Weaver is portrayed as a young and cynical deputy medical examiner. She has a fairly slender figure, and dark hair.

In the first film Laurel investigates the corpse of a man that Officer James Edwards chased. She finds that the man had two different sets of eyelids.

Later on, J, and K search the morgue to look for the bodies of aliens that were killed by Edgar the Bug. After this, she is neuralyzed.

During the middle of the film, she is held captive by Edgar and visited by the agents again. She tries to alert J of the threat with subtle hints but he doesn't catch on until later. Laurel criticizes him for taking too long to get the hint, as he argues back before Edgar stops them. Edgar escapes while abducting Laurel in order to deter pursuit, she attempts to convince him to let her go, implies that Earth will declare war in response due to her being its ruler. However, this only encourages him, since it meant ensuring that he can feed his family's mouths. Laurel compliments his looking out for family and managed to escape. She witnessed Jay and Kay then arrived and shoit the ship down.

At the end of the film, she kills the rest of Edgar, after pieces of him tried to kill Kay and Jay while they were unaware, she remarks she is interested in their jobs. Afterwards, she is recruited by the MiB and becomes J's new partner Agent L.

Men In Black: The Series

In Men in Black The Series she is moved to the lab inside MiB headquarters becoming chief scientific officer and an assistant to Zed.

In The Long Goodbye Syndrome when Jay is pursued by Skraaldian aliens she gives J a freezing weapon to defend himself from them after J accidentally blew one alien up by firing his noisy cricket at him.

In The Big Bad Bug Syndrome, L is pursued by another Bug named Edwin, Edgar's brother who wants revenge on her for Edgar's death. She is kidnapped again but when J and K arrive to rescue her all three are captured. They are later rescued by the Worms and a group of Bug bounty hunters. When the Bug bounty hunters need sugar to survive the Worms give them their sugared coffee. The bounty hunters fire at Edwin killing him just like how Edgar was killed.

In The Musical Chairs Syndrome her role as chief scientific officer is later replaced by Dr Zan'dozz Zeeltor because she wanted to move into field work.

She is also given a new partner an alien named Agent X, since J and K were partners again, but since this series takes place after the events of the first film it is considered non-canon to the live action films.

Men In Black II

In Men in Black II, L does not appear, but is mentioned once. J explains that L apparently wanted to return to working as a medical examiner.




  • Though Agent L does not appear in Men In Black II (as like Agent K, she apparently retired), she appears regularly in The Series.
