As first reported by Marvel.com, the Aussie actor is joining the ABC drama as Lincoln, a charismatic Inhuman who has an important role to play in Skye understanding the true extent of her transformation.
As seen in the midseason finale, Skye — upon delivering the obelisk to the underground city — was exposed to Terrigen Mist, triggering her aforementioned transformation. Lest there be any doubt, the showrunners confirmed that Skye aka Daisy Johnson is, in fact, an Inhuman herself.
Mitchell’s previous TV credits also include Home & Away, Neighbours, H20: Just Add Water and the aborted midseason ABC series Members Only.
S.H.I.E.L.D. resumes Season 2 on Tuesday, March 3 at 9/8c.
