Agents of SHIELD uprising logoThis week two new characters have joined the ranks on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! First up we have Whedon alum Amy Acker (Dollhouse, Angel) will play Agent Coulson’s love interest, Audrey “the cellist”. Marvel has provided fans with the first official image of the character and an interview with Acker about her role on the show. What will happen when she finds out Coulson is alive? Well you’re going to have to tune into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to find out!

Agents of Shield 01

[box_light] Before you were even cast, were you one of those people who was wondering who the Cellist was that was referenced in the movie?

Amy Acker: I was, because I’m also a huge Clark Gregg fan. I’ve always been interested in what his storyline is going to be. It just seems like such a neat little piece to put in there. So when Clark was like, “Joss wrote the thing about the cellist in ‘Marvel’s The Avengers’ and [it’s] something that’s been really important to [me] all along,” I was excited.

Agents of Shield 02

A villain role was filled this week as well! Patrick Brennan (The Black Donnellys) will play the character Blackout in the upcoming episode, “Providence”. The character will be a little different from his comic book counterpart, as Blackout will have the ability to suck the energy out of things around him. Marvel has a great interview with Brennan, check out the excerpt below!

[box_light] How did your role as Marcus Daneils sort of come together?

Patrick Brennan: I had been in for “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” several times for other things, for other parts, and I know that they liked me so this came along and they actually offered it to me. I didn’t have to go in and read for it, which was a first for me. I didn’t know anything about the part, they kind of gave me the gist of it and then I had an in-depth conversation with a couple of the [producers] on the phone. And the whole time, I’m like, “You guys are putting me on, right? This is ridiculous. It’s so cool.”
