G. Willow Wilson:
Agents of SHIELD just got its second actress of color in a recurring role. But who is she?
Ruth Negga is an Irish-Ethiopian actress with roles in Irish film, various British television shows, and lately a crop of roles in The Samaritan,12 Years a Slave, and World War Z. But she might be most visible to the nerd crowd for playing Nikki on Misfits, a character who gained teleportation powers after receiving a heart transplant from a man who had them.
But all we know about her character on SHIELD is that she’ll be playing an unnamed recurring character.
SHE IS SO UNBELIEVABLY CUTE AND I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!!
