Marvel has announced that Sons of Anarchy veteran, Drea de Matteo, has been cast as the villainous Karla Faye Gideon, for an upcoming episode of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Karla will be introduced as a gifted women with a grudge against S.H.I.E.L.D, that will lead her to join forces with Skye's father, Cal.
“We’re thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast,” said Executive Producer and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role.”
In the comics, Karla was a minor character who often came into contact with Daredevil's alter-ego Matt Murdock, after her child was murdered. She would later be saved by Daredevil from her abusive husband. With the season finale of 'SHIELD' coinciding with the premiere of Daredevil, is it possible that the character may crossover to Daredevil?
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC with all-new episodes on Tuesday, March 3 at 9 p.m.
