The pilot for the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series is definitely taking shape as two more actors have joined the cast.
Agent Leo Fitz and Agent Jemma Simmons – These two came through training together and still choose to spend most of their time in each other’s company. Their sibling-like relationship is reinforced by their shared nerd tendencies – she deals with biology and chemistry, he’s a whiz at the technical side of weaponry.
This leaves us with just two unclaimed roles:
Skye – This late-20s woman sounds like a dream: fun, smart, caring and confident – with an ability to get the upper hand by using her wit and charm.
Agent Grant Ward – Quite the physical specimen and “cool under fire,” he sometimes botches interpersonal relations. He’s a quiet one with a bit of a temper, but he’s the kind of guy that grows on you.
Considering the speed with which things are progressing as of late on this project, I have a feeling it won’t be long before we know who these two will be portrayed by.
