Whedonverse actress Amy Acker will play Coulson’s girlfriend.
Why, yes, I am still watching Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, why do you ask? Seriously, I think the people who complain about this show are still judging it from its rocky start, but it’s managed to rise above that and become so much better. Part of that has everything to do with Clark Gregg’s performance as Agent Phil Coulson, so it’s awesome that we’ll learn more about him and even get to meet Coulson’s girlfriend, the cellist.
Even better? That girlfriend will be portrayed by Amy Acker, a name familiar to Whedon fans. We loved her on Angel and Dollhouse and pretty much anything else she’s been a part of (I particularly loved her in web series Husbands). The character will believe that Coulson is dead, so I’m assuming she might eventually find out otherwise. Oh, the drama! I’m in and can’t wait.
