News has just come out that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be adding Sons of Anarchy actress, Drea De Matteo, to the future cast. Matteo played the up and down character of Wendy on SoA but since that has ended she’s been able to move on to find other projects. Now, the Emmy winning actress joins S.H.I.E.L.D. as Karla Faye Gideon, a villain who will team up with Cal, Skye’s father, to try and take down S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the comics, the character of Karla Faye Gideon has ties to Daredevil but no powers or real major impact. She’s more of a side character but apparently on the television show they will be adapting her to be a “gifted woman” which means she might now have powers.
It will be great to see Matteo on another show so quickly and she should definitely be an awesome villain going forward.
