It was revealed yesterday that Amy Acker is set for a guest appearance on the April 22nd episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She’ll play Audrey, the Portland cellist that was first mentioned in Marvel’s The Avengers during a discussion between Clark Gregg’s Agent Phil Coulson and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts. Now, Marvel has debuted the first official image of the character above.
Acker, best known for playing Fred on Angel, has also appeared in Whedonverse projects like Dollhouse, The Cabin in the Woods and Much Ado About Nothing. She currently plays Root on Person of Interest
Her cellist, was recently mentioned on the show when Ruth Negga’s Rainia, trying to break Coulson, told him that the woman cried for days when she learned that Coulson had died in the Battle of New York.
“It seems like these two people are meant to be together and their story hasn’t really been told. The way that it ends in this episode, it seems like there’s a glimmer of hope that they may be together again or something like that. I feel like it’s sort of destiny for their paths to cross in some way.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays at 8 P.M. on ABC.
