Geek favourite Amy Acker has been cast as Agent Coulson's mysterious Cellist in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

It was only a matter of time. With post-Angel roles in Joss Whedon's DollhouseThe Cabin In the Woods, and Much Ado About Nothing, and guest appearances in David Greenwalt's Grimm and Jane Espenson's Husbands, Amy Acker hasn't been reluctant about reuniting with her Buffy spin-off family. Now it's been announced that Acker has been cast in Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Acker's latest reunion sees her join the Whedon/Tancharoen ABC venture in the role of Agent Coulson's beloved cellist girlfriend. The character also goes by the name of Audrey, we learn, and is a talented musician unaware that Coulson is still alive, and being protected by him from a powerful threat. Acker will feature in at least one episode of the ABC series.

Acker and Clark Gregg last shared the screen together in Joss Whedon's delightful Much Ado About Nothing, in which she played niece Beatrice to his Leonarto. If you missed it at the time, the film and Acker's performance both come highly recommended by us.
