Time will tell if Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ can earn back the show’s good will against the likes of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘ and Marvel’s other cinematic offerings, but its latest casting of Whedon alum Amy Acker as Coulson’s oft-mentioned cellist was certainly a step in the right direction. Check out a first look at the character from an upcoming episode of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ along with insight from Acker herself!

Scheduled to appear in an untitled episode airing April 22, Acker’s Audrey will come into play when a super-powered threat from her past reemerges, forcing Agent Coulson to intervene. The “cellist” character had first been mentioned in ‘The Avengers,’ while ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has repeatedly referenced the character as well, particularly her belief that Coulson died before the Battle of New York.

Details are light on the episode itself, though Acker spoke to about the appearance, in particular suggesting that S.H.I.E.L.D.’s trustworthiness might come into play:

That’s kind of the struggle of the episode, [her] finding the strength to hold up under that pressure. I think probably her relationship with Coulson and with S.H.I.E.L.D., and what they did for her in the past, has made her a stronger person and made her really trust that if she does what they say, that things are going to turn out the way they should and that she’s going to be protected. So I think that when she gets afraid and starts to doubt whether or not the plan is going to actually work, it seems like her love of Coulson is what makes her strong enough to keep with it in the end.

Apart from Acker, intervening weeks for ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will see Victoria Hand (Saffron Burrows), Jasper Sitwell (Maximilliano Hernandez), Blake (Titus Welliver) and John Garrett (Bill Paxton) all returning to battle the menace of Deathlok, while ‘Heroes‘ star Adrian Pasdar will put in an appearance as ‘Hulkantagonist Glenn Talbot, and Patton Oswalt will appear as comic character Eric Koenig.

In the meantime, check out a first look at Acker in character as Coulson’s cellist Audrey below, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the latest ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ installments!
