Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Video: Clark Gregg Reveals Amy Acker's 'Power'

Loading video...

To hear Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. frontman Clark Gregg tell it, “the world’s shortest casting conversation” led to Whedonverse fave/his Much Ado About Nothing costar Amy Acker filling the Season 1 role of Audrey Nathan aka Coulson’s ex-love, The Cellist.

And while any Whedonite can avow that Acker is indeed something special, could it be that her awesomeness extends into actually possessing a superpower?

In the above exclusive clip from the “Cello Duet” featurette included in the complete first season DVD and Blu-ray sets (out today), Gregg and Acker reflect on her (first of multiple, we can hope?) visit to the ABC series, how easy it is to be “in love” with Agent Coulson, and the “super” feat Acker pulled off in playing the part.

    When I was in Hollywood 10 years ago, I actually saw her on the street. (Still kicking myself for not getting a picture!)

    Amy is pretty adorable. :)

    She’s already playing a superhero type character on another show but I really want The Cellist to return as superhero at least for one episode or more.

    Talk about having a full plate. Amy is a regular on Person Of Interest, so I wonder just how many appearances she will make in Shield. Can’t imagine learning to play the cello for a single episode of a TV show.

  7. Billy Ray says:

    If Acker is so great, Why is person of Interest down 30% in the ratings since she was added as a regular?

  8. Michael Weisser says:

    I really need to see agents of The Shield soon. I mostly watch Amy Acker on Person of Interest and she is so fantastic (acting) and cute. Her and Sarah Shahi really make that show an A+. She and Sarah have to stay regulars on Person of Interest for good, I just love her and Sarah.
