Nikita alum Lyndsy Fonseca has landed a recurring role opposite Hayley Atwell and Shea Whigham on ABC’s Marvel’s Agent Carter. She will play Angie, an aspiring actress who befriends Peggy Carter (Atwell) on the new series, which will bridge the fall and spring editions of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Inspired by the feature films Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter, the series is set in 1946 and centers on Peggy Carter who, working for the covert Strategic Scientific Reserve, must balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark. Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj co-star.

It’ll be a busy season for Fonseca, who also co-stars on Amazon Studios’ comedy pilot Down Dog. Her other credits include the role of Alex on the CW’s long-running series Nikita, How I Met Your Mother, Desperate Housewives and the Kick-Ass features.
