AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Casts Coulson’s Cellist Paramour


AMY ACKER at TV Guide Magazine Hotlist PartyDuring The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) mentioned that he had been seeing a cellist from Portland. That of course was a personal little tidbit to make us love the character even more before his untimely demise at the hands…or rather scepter, or Loki (Tom Hiddleston). Since the film, people have been curious to know more about the mysterious lady love of Phil. The cellist was teased in an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode when Raina (the girl in the flower dress) teased Coulson after his kidnapping that the cellist cried for days after his death. Well the wait is over and the cellist will make an appearance in at least one episode before the first season of the show ends.

TV Guide is reporting that Joss Whedon regular Amy Acker has been cast in the role of the cellist. That’s not all. The character we’ve waited to see finally has a name. The site reports that Acker‘s cellist is named Audreythe famous cellist first mentioned in Marvel’s The Avengers as being the love of Phil Coulson’s life. A talented musician turning heads in Portland, Audrey believes Coulson to be dead and has no idea that he’s guarding her from a distance as a super-powered threat from her past re-emerges.

Acker is best known for her Whedon roles in Angel, Dollhouse, and Much Ado About Nothing, but she is currently a star of Person of Interest. Acker‘s episode is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, April 22nd. While it’s thought to be a one-off, there is a chance for it to repeat. What do you think about the cellist finally making an appearance?
