Two More SHIELD Agents Hired

S.H.I.E.L.D., the Marvel Universe TV series heading to ABC next year has just added two new cast members; joining the already announced Ming-Na and Clark Gregg are Elizabeth Henstridge and Iain De Caestecker.

Henstridge, whose previous work includes a two episodes stint on the British teen soap opera Hollyoaks, will be playing Agent Jemma Simmons, SHIELD’s chemistry and biology expert.  De Caestecker , another British actor and star of The Fades, will play Leo Fitz, the technology expert.  The previously leaked casting call describes these two characters as having a ‘sibling-like’ relationship, which explains why they were cast together, as chemistry would have been very important.
