Lucy Lawless chatted all about AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 and her original character written into the MCU for the show, Isabelle Hartley. Figure out her strengths, ticks, and what we can expect from her and the rest of the team in the next season!
On Hartley’s weapon of choice and disposition:
Oh, yeah. You never know when you might like to slice some cheese… or worse. She has the air of a Middle Eastern journalist, one of those people who thrives on danger, and we’ll see if she’s bitten off more than she can chew, because HYDRA is incredibly awesome.
What you’ll see in the Season 2 premiere:
You get to see the magnificence of HYDRA and what our team is up against. It’s like S.H.I.E.L.D. represents humanity and HYDRA’s this sort of massive, amorphous evil, so you get to see humanity fighting back with all its wiles and its brilliance and its adaptability — like cockroaches, we will not be beaten. We will survive. We will go on. You get to see the awesomeness of human ingenuity with S.H.I.E.L.D.
And in case you wonder how she’d fare against her infamous OTHER TV role, Xena..
Yeah, Izzy won’t even hear it coming. No, the main difference is that Izzy is a part of the team, whereas Xena can go it alone.
