Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: What is the blue alien? One theory debunked!

The cellist, who had remained nameless until now, was mentioned earlier this season when Raina (Ruth Negga) goaded Coulson by saying his former long-distance lover had cried for days after his death.

Acker's casting marks a reunion between the actress and Gregg, who shared the screen in S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothingadaptation. Currently starring on Person of Interest, Acker is also well known for her roles on Whedon's Angel and Dollhouse, where she worked with S.H.I.E.L.D. bosses Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. Her credits also include Once Upon a Time, The Good Wife and Alias.

Acker will appear in an episode slated to air Tuesday, April 22. Are you excited to see her on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, April 1 at 8/7c on ABC.
