The Emmy winner will come on board the series as Karla Faye Gideon, a giifted young woman with a grudge to bear against S.H.I.E.L.D.

Look for her to join forces with Skye’s father, Cal.

“We’re thrilled to have Drea join us as yet another great villain to challenge our cast,” said Executive Producer Jeph Loeb. “We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role."

With Marvel's Agent Carter currently occupying its timeslot, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns on Tuesday, March 3 at 9:00 p.m. ET on ABC with new episodes.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Quotes

Ward: You know, last time I suggested we work together you called me a deluded son of a bitch.
Coulson: Things change. I'm offering you a deal. Help me and I'll let you walk away; free and clear. No more looking over your shoulder.
Ward: When something's too good to be true, it's a lie.
Coulson: Not lying. I tried to stick with you before, didn't work so well. So, I'm offering a carrot.
Ward: I'm listening.
Coulson: Get me inside. After that, I put you through the T.A.H.I.T.I. protocol and then you're free to go.
Ward: Wipe my memories? Wow that sounds like a threat, not a carrot.

If Coulson doesn't make it out, you get that closure you've been searching for. Closure's not something I ever put much stock in. What I believe in, is moving forward. Never looking back.
