The upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off, Marvel’s Most Wanted is getting closer. The show will feature Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) on the run, but will also add new characters along the way. Delroy Lindo was the first addition to the supporting cast, but when the official logo was released, two new members joined the show as well. Alongside Oded Fehr was actress Fernanda Andrade, who will be playing a character named Christina Santos.
Comic Book Resources was able to talk to Andrade about her character, getting a little bit of information on the upcoming show, and her character. As of right now, we don’t know too much about the upcoming series, other than filming on the pilot has already taken place. And while they wait for a full series order, which should come next month, there is not much info to be given about the plot of the show, which is why Andrade is keeping things close to the chest. When asked what she could tell us about the upcoming series, Andrade reiterated that there wasn’t too much that she could share.
Nothing! [Laughs] I’m just kidding. I can tell you some things, I was told. The show that we’re doing is called “Marvel’s Most Wanted.” It follows Bobbi Morse and Lance Hunter. They’re ex-agent spies, and they’ve gone rogue.
It’s kind of this whole brave new world for them because they’ve got nobody to watch their backs. And they make this unlikely alliance with Dominic Fortune and Christina Santos, which is my character — they’re partners. It’s a really fun show because it’s totally unpredictable. Nobody has any real alliances, so you never know who to trust.
Marvel has become pretty good at developing mysterious and complex characters that make us uneasy as viewers as to what they might do next. When asked to describe her character, she could not get into too much detail about who she is personally but did make it clear she’ll be someone that could make things difficult for Bobbi and Hunter or be a helpful asset if used correctly.
She’s tough. She’s badass. She has these really special skills. She just kind of knows how to work things, like weapons and cars. But a lot of her story and who she is and where her loyalties lie are still unknown.
As reported on before, Lindo will be playing Dominic Fortune, a very rich and powerful person in Bobbi and Hunter’s lives. With that said, that could be why Andrade is such a threat, due to the fact that the characters are extremely close to one another.
She’s his niece, but that’s about all I can tell you.
We have been led to believe that Bobbi and Hunter are the “Most Wanted” people implied by the title, and for Andrade’s character we may have a better understanding as to how she gets involved. Even though she said earlier that her loyalty is unknown, she does have a history with Bobbi, which should make it apparent early on whether she can be trusted or not.
Christina has some history with Hunter, which is also under wraps, and we don’t really know what it is. So that’ll kind of unfold as we watch the show. So that’s fun. It’s really fun.
During her time on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Bobbi kicked plenty of butt and was the center piece of quite a few action sequences. Marvel is known for their action, and when Most Wanted rolls around fans will expect nothing less than the best. We know Bobbi and Hunter will definitely be throwing some punches, and it appears Christina will join in on the fun and that is something that is exciting for Andrade.
Yeah, I mean, everybody gets a lot of action! It’s just packed, yeah.
Oh, yeah. I grew up dancing ballet, and it’s like an excuse to keep pushing that way. I love that stuff.
As an outsider, joining the giant universe Marvel has built could be a daunting experience for any actor. However, that does not mean that it is filled with big egos. Andrade says that everyone was welcoming on the new show.
Honestly, on just a personal level, everybody’s been so lovely. It’s just full of good people.
Marvel’s Most Wanted, has been ordered to pilot by ABC, but no premiere date has been set. We will likely get an update on the series next month at ABC’s Upfronts, and if we do we will give you the update right here.
