It was announced earlier this week by Marvel Entertainment that Drea de Matteo (The Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, Californication) would be joining the cast of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as a villain. She will portray Karla Fay Gideon who is described as "a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye's father."
The character's name might be familiar to comic book fans as a character from Daredevil: Redemption but it seems as though this will be a totally different character.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC on March 3rd at 9 PM EST and stars Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Daisy "Skye" Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Jemma Simmons, Nick Blood as Lance Hunter, and Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse aka Mockingbird.
