Two New Agents Sign up for S.H.I.E.L.D.

Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker will both be reporting for duty. Interestingly both have backgrounds in British telly with Henstridge appearing in Hollyoaks and De Caestecker working on Coronation Street and more recently, The Fades. As detailed on The Hollywood Reporter:

Henstridge will play science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestecker will play Agent Leo Fitz, a technology guru. The duo spend all their time together — mostly bickering — and are masters of their respective fields at a remarkably young age.

Henstridge and De Caestecker join the previously cast Ming-Na, who will play top-notch pilot and weapons expert Agent Melinda May, and Clark Gregg, who reprises his role fromThe Avengers as Agent Phil Coulson.

It’s all getting very exciting as that Pilot episode gets ever closer. In true Joss Whedon style there seems to be a real focus on characters and it sounds like it could be a lot of fun, especially with Clark Gregg back.

If you look back to the announced character list there are still some casting choices to be made so stay tuned.
