Emmy winning actress and Sons of Anarchy star Drea de Matteo has joined the cast of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Marvel Entertainment has recently revealed. She will be playing the villain Karla Faye Gideon, "a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D. who joins forces with Skye’s father, Cal."
You may recognize the human character with a lack of superpowers from the Daredevil: Redemption comic arc, but the two worlds will resist colliding on ABC's superpowered series as this Karla Faye Gideon will come with some special abilities.
Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel Television, had some pleasant words to say about Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s latest acquisition:
We’re thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast. We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role.
de Matteo nabbed an Emmy for her performance as Adriana La Cerva in HBO's seminal The Sopranos, and then later took her talents to other illustrious series such as Desperate Housewives and Joey.
This is pretty good news because Drea de Matteo is a very talented actress, so I'm sure she'll bring something great to the hit ABC series.
