THE SOPRANOS' Drea De Matteo Joins AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. In Villainous Role

Emmy Award winning actress Drea De Matteo (Sons of Anarchy) has joined the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s second season in a villainous role, and you can find out more about who she will play and who exactly her character will be aligned with after the jump...


When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns this March, it will be bringing a numer of new cast members with it! The latest is Emmy-winning actress Drea de Matte, and The Sopranos star will be playing Karla Faye Gideon, a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye’s father, Cal. The comic book version of the character played a very minor role in Daredevil: Redemption, but had no powers. "We’re thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast," said Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. "We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role." It should be very interesting to see what sort of a part the actress ends up playing in the series.
