Amy Acker Joins S.H.I.E.L.D. For Significant Guest Role

Remember that part earlier in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD where Coulson (Clark Gregg) mentioned his cello playing sweetheart, who assumes he’s still dead?

Well it seems her story is about to be fleshed out in the form of Amy Acker.

Acker, who is currently knocking it out of the park each week as the smart and highly disturbed Root in CBS’ Person of Interest will play Audrey, Coulson’s lost love.

The casting is a natural one as Acker is no stranger to Joss Whedon-produced material.

Her previous Whedonverse credits include Buffy, Angel and Dollhouse  Рin addition to stints on other Network shows including Grimm, Once Upon a Time and Alias.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs Tuesdays on ABC.
