Lucy Lawless is heading into battle on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but she'll be suiting up in a different kind of armor. The Xena: Warrior Princess star will play Agent Isabelle Hartley in the second season of the ABC series.
After the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, S.H.I.E.L.D. is no more. But Lawless' character, a seasoned S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, meets up with Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) in the second season to help rebuild the organization.
Lawless' other TV credits include Battlestar Galactica, Parks and Recreation and guest bits across genre fair including The X-Files and Veronica Mars. She's not the only new face joining the Marvel series for season two.
