If you like your superhero tales with a ’40s twist, look no further than our latest special guest, Agent Carter‘s Lotte Verbeek. Lotte joined the cast of Agent Carter for the critically acclaimed drama’s second season, playing Ana Jarvis – the smart, bubbly wife of Stark family butler Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy).
Set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Agent Carter sees British officer and S.H.I.E.L.D. co-founder Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) battle bad guys (and casual sexism!) as a secret agent in 1940s America. Season 2 sees the action shift to 1947 California, with Carter moving to Los Angeles to deal with the threats posed by the new Atomic Age. There she becomes fast friends with Lotte Verbeek’s free-spirited Ana Jarvis …although it’s an association that lands the likeable Ana in mortal danger.
The award-winning Dutch actor is also well known for playing papal mistress and Lucrezia’s close friend Giulia Farnese on fan favourite Showtime dramaThe Borgias. Lotte Verbeek‘s other credits include 2014 romantic drama The Fault in Our Stars, time-travelling Starz series Outlander and last year’s dark fantasy actioner The Last Witch Hunter.
