Saffron Burrows Joins “S.H.I.E.L.D.” Series?

Though it is shedding ratings quickly, Marvel’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” series hasn’t begun to run out of its bag of tricks just yet.

Latino Review reports that actress Saffron Burrows (“Deep Blue Sea,” “The Bank Job”) will guest star as one of the lower-tier characters from Marvel’s comic book universe – Agent Victoria Hand.

In the comics, she was a S.H.I.E.L.D. accountant who vocally opposed the policies of Nick Fury. When Norman Osborn took over the group and remodelled it as H.A.M.M.E.R., she was promoted to Deputy Director.

There presently is no official confirmation from Burrows or her representatives about the casting.
