Iain De Caestecker (“The Fades”) and Elizabeth Henstridge (“Hollyoaks”) have joined the cast of Joss Whedon’s pilot for Marvel’s “S.H.I.E.L.D.” at ABC.
Henstridge will play science whiz Agent Gemma Simmons, while De Caestecker will play Agent Leo Fitz, a technology guru. The duo will spend much of their screen time together, with the relationship described as akin to bickering siblings.
The pair join the previously cast Ming-Na and Clark Gregg.
