Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Declassifies Amy Acker

Amy discusses her character & upcoming episode on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with Marvel — please be aware, a portion of the interview is posted under the cut as it is considered spoilery.

Who could possibly steal Agent Coulson’s heart? The answer, it turns out, is Amy Acker.

Acker, known for her roles in fan favorite series such as “Angel,” “Person of Interest,” and “Dollhouse” as well as director Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” will join “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” for an upcoming episode as Audrey, the “cellist” and love of Coulson’s life first mentioned in “Marvel’s The Avengers.”

With so much about Audrey shrouded in mystery, we spoke with Acker about the role, the character’s importance both to Agent Coulson and actor Clark Gregg, and much more—and to top it all off, we’ve got your first look at Acker as Audrey from “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”! 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. You’ve worked with a lot of the producers on “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and Clark before, so how did this particular opportunity come up?

Amy Acker: Well, I have been bugging [them] and just saying how I love working with all of them. Jed [Whedon] and Maurissa [Tancharoen produced] “Dollhouse,” and obviously I would kill to do anything with Clark. I think he’s so great. I have been dropping not so subtle hints that I would like to work with them and then they called me and asked if I might be available. It kind of worked out perfectly when I had a couple of days off. It was nice. It didn’t look like it was going to happen and then everything came together.

Amy Guest Starring on ‘Agents of SHIELD’!

I am so excited about this announcement! Amy is to guest star on at least 1 episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Audrey, a cellist & the love of Coulson’s life (played by Clark Gregg — they previously co-starred on Much Ado About Nothing together!)

Full article is posted below. Happy reading!

Whedonverse alum Amy Acker has landed a pivotal role on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has learned exclusively.

Acker will appear in at least one episode of the ABC series as Audrey, the famous cellist first mentioned in Marvel’s The Avengers as being the love of Phil Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) life. A talented musician turning heads in Portland, Audrey believes Coulson to be dead and has no idea that he’s guarding her from a distance as a super-powered threat from her past re-emerges.

The cellist, who had remained nameless until now, was mentioned earlier this season when Raina (Ruth Negga) goaded Coulson by saying his former long-distance lover had cried for days after his death.

Acker’s casting marks a reunion between the actress and Gregg, who shared the screen in S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing adaptation. Currently starring on Person of Interest, Acker is also well known for her roles on Whedon’s Angel and Dollhouse, where she worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. bosses Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. Her credits also include Once Upon a Time, The Good Wife and Alias.

Acker will appear in an episode slated to air Tuesday, April 22.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, April 1 at 8/7c on ABC.
