You may have heard of this upcoming TV show we’re looking forward to called SHIELD?
Well, it seems the first female agent of SHIELD has been cast to stand alongside Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson. And it’s actress Ming-Na Wen (Mulan, ER, Joy Luck Club) who is the lucky girl.
The actress will play Agent Melinda May, described in the character description as ‘soulful and slightly damaged by her combat experiences’. Curiously, this same character description was applied to a character called Agent Althea Rice. We’re not sure if this is a new character, a re-write or a name change. Either way, it’s great to know Joss Whedon’s show is gathering momentum.
This is all lovely, but come on Joss! Get Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk and Amy Acker in there. And there’s bound to be a role for Tony Head. Just a suggestion…
