Amy Acker Previews Her Role on This Week's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.21.2014



Amy Acker recently spoke with TV Line about her role as Audrey, Coulson's cellist ex-girlfriend who thinks he's dead, on this week's episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Check out the highlights:

On whether she'd talk with the Whedon's before about doing the show: "You know, I think that Clark [Gregg] and I had exchanged some Twitter banter about it. Someone said, "Oh, Amy should be on it," and Clark said, "Right," and then I said, "OK, please" or something like that. Basically me begging to work with Clark again."

On how we meet Audrey: "Well, she has someone after her from her past. And you find out that Coulson has been watching over her and is trying to protect her. I think that once he found out about Hydra and everything kind of dissolved as far as S.H.I.E.L.D., he knew the ramifications of what that meant as far as who is out there. He realized that she could be in trouble, and so that became a priority."

On whether we find out what she's been up to since she learned Coulson died: "Yeah, I have a really nice, pretty speech that they wrote about just how hard it was to get over him, trying to kind of put my life back together since I lost him."

On whether they get an actual reunion: "Well, they are in a scene together. I'll say that."

On whether he knew how to play the cello already: "Well, I took a nice three-hour lesson after I found out I was playing the part. [Laughs] Unfortunately, you can't actually learn to play the cello in three hours, but…. It's funny, because my daughter takes violin, so I've been trying to just steal her lessons from her since I have to go with her every time anyway. I'm like, "Oh, I can play the violin now!" I thought I was pretty good at it, but apparently not so much."

On the last time she played someone as normal as Audrey: "I get to be pretty bad and cool on Person of Interest, so it was a nice thing to do S.H.I.E.L.D. and be a normal, nice girl, something total different. [Laughs] I guess [Much Ado About Nothing's] Beatrice would be the most normal person before that, yeah."

On being part of the Whedon "repertoire company": "Oh, jeez. I mean, it's been a total blessing to know all those people — and on a personal level as well as a work level. I mean, most of my best friends I've met from my Angel days and from doing Shakespeare readings at Joss' house. And he hires such amazing writers who have now gone on to make their own shows, so I was lucky enough to do something on Grimm and Once Upon a Time, all these different things with different people who have been on or affiliated with Angel. Fred is the gift that keeps on giving, I guess."
