On Wednesday, March 26 TV Guide exclusively broke the news that actress Amy Acker will be joining the television drama "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." for at least one episode in a pivotal role which will link her with Agent Coulson. She will play Audrey, the cellist who is believed to be the love of Phil Coulson's life.
Audrey was first mentioned in the film "The Avengers," when Pepper Potts asked Coulson (Clark Gregg) about her when he visited Stark Tower. Audrey was also mentioned briefly in an earlier episode of the season, but her name remained a mystery until now.
Acker is no stranger to the Whedonverse, appearing in the television shows "Dollhouse" and "Angel" as well as the film "Much Ado About Nothing" alongside Clark Gregg. Joss Whedon, who helped create those projects, is also an executive producer for the ABC series who wrote and directed the pilot episode. Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tanchareon are both writers and executive producers on the series as well.
The character is a talented cellist who apparently lives in Portland, but after the events in New York, she believes Coulson to be dead. She was distraught after his death, so it will be interesting to see how she is introduced on the series and if she will interact with Coulson.
"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" airs on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC and will return with new episodes on Tuesday, April 1. Acker will first appear in the episode that will air near the end of April, the nineteenth episode of the twenty-two episode first season. It's unclear if she will be appearing in multiple episodes.
