Marvel announced today that Emmy-winning actress Drea de Matteo (Sons of Anarchy, The Sopranos) has joined the cast of Agents of SHIELD. (I’m refusing to use the periods in SHIELD. Can we just agree that this is okay?) Matteo will play Karla Faye Gideon, a Gifted woman with a grudge to bear against SHIELD who joins 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 and Marvel’s Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “We relished the opportunity to work with her in such a menacing role.”

Another awesome lady joining the show? This is fantastic news. Don’t miss our weekly recaps and reviews when the show returns to ABC on March 3.
