Lilli Birdsell has landed a recurring role in the upcoming fourth season of the ABC comic-based drama Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
According to Deadline, Birdsell will play "Lucy, a beautiful woman with a haunting quality. She has a very violent streak in her inner self, because of things that have happened."
Where might you know Birdsell from? She portrayed Hannah in The Walking Dead Webisodes and made guest appearances on numerous television shows like Angel, Becker, NCIS, Cold Case, Two and a Half Men, Good Luck Charlie, Castle, Bones, and, most recently, TURN: Washington's Spies.
