SHIELD fans, catch a first look at The Tomorrow People alum Luke Mitchell in these new images from episode 2×16 “Afterlife.”

Mitchell kicks off a recurring role Lincoln Campbell, an inhuman who crosses paths with Skye, and who will stick around over the next 7 episodes.

Speaking to EW recently, S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Jeff Bell offered the following on Campbell:

Meeting Luke’s character in the Inhuman world is just setting up a new dynamic. We’re taking [Skye] into a group with a whole bunch of different people. So far, we’ve seen that there’s a guy with no eyes, and there’s a woman [Raina] who now is covered in thorns. And as in the X-Men world, there are a handful of people who look more like them, but a lot of them turn out to be just attractive people with powers. And we thought, “Hey, let’s have some of those as well!” [laughs] We were looking for a new character to come on, and Luke just really impressed us. He was a good actor, had a nice quality, and we felt he might be a good person to sort of usher Skye into this other world.

Agents of SHIELD’s “Afterlife” episode airs April 7 on ABC.
