It’s been an exciting week so far for HH client HAYLEY ATWELL as her brand new eight-episode show, Marvel’s Agent Carter, in which she stars in the titular role, premiered on America’s ABC channel last night to excellent reviews for both the show and HAYLEY‘s star performance.
In this highly anticipated new series, HAYLEY once again reprises her role as Peggy Carter from the short film Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter as well as the massive feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The new full-length series is set in post-war 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she returns from war to find herself marginalised by the men returning home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark, all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life – Steve Rogers.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HAYLEY “fully embodies the character [with] panache and allure”. Time Out describes HAYLEY‘s performance as being “like a ’40s movie idol in her bearing, history and confidence. She’s as convincing wielding a crisp insult as an improvised blade, conveying the control and deftness Carter requires to run a covert operation under the patronizing gaze of her inferior superiors in the SSR boys’ club.” Screenrant have praised Agent Carter for having “at its core, the extremely adept Atwell, to establish the foundation of the series.”
The show airs weekly on Tuesdays on ABC. Make sure you tune in to watch HAYLEY rocking her iconic role!
