The star of Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter’ has been cast in the latest ABC pilot ‘Conviction’. Hayley Atwell is mostly known for her role as Agent Peggy Carter in the Marvel Universe and can be seen as Ella’s Mother in the latest adaptation of Cinderella.
Many people are concerned that this would mean Atwell is done playing our favorite SSR agent, but Variety reports that if ‘Agent Carter’ is renewed for a third season her schedule will be worked out to accommodate both shows.
Atell will star in ‘Conviction’, the latest law drama pilot. The show will focus on a newly minted Conviction Integrity Unit, that focuses on cases where there is credible suspicion that the wrong person was convicted of a crime. Atwell will play Carter Morrison, a rebellious former president’s daughter who is blackmailed into running this new group of lawyers, investigators and forensic experts.
This is all very exciting, but my main question is this. Will Ms. Atwell be keeping her gorgeous British accent??
