AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.: First Look At Amy Acker As 'The Cellist'
We found out the other day that former Angel alum Amy Acker had joined the cast of the Marvel tv series as the famous 'cellist' who we first heard mention of in The Avengers. Well, it turns out her name is Audrey, and you can take a look at her after the jump.
Joss Whedon fans will no doubt recognize Amy Acker from the likes of Angel, Dollhouse and Much Ado About Nothing; and now she's signed on to appear in another project which involves the Avengers director: Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. We found out the other day that she'd been cast as Audrey -- the cellist first mentioned in The Avengers who was then revealed to have been Agent Coulson's one true love...before he died that is. But now he's back, and it seems we might be in for a reconciliation, as Audrey is set to appear in an upcoming ep. Here's our first look at the character, followed by quotes from Acker.
"I think one of the things that was so interesting about the role is that she has this backstory and she has been talked about in the TV show as well as the movie and you knew that she was someone important to him and, therefore, to everyone and, as an audience member, important to me. I was curious to see who they were going to cast as that person, never actually thinking it was going to be me. [laughs] But [I was] just excited to see how that storyline would play out. So when Clark called me personally and said how important this role was to him, that it [needed to be] cast with the right person, it was very flattering that he thought that I was that person."
