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.
ABC’s S.H.I.E.L.D. opens Season 2 on Tuesday, Sept. 23, now airing at 9/8c.
