Madame Hydra to Appear on ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

Comic book character will be the third played by Mallory Jansen

Mallory Jansen will be taking on a third role on ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” when the comic book series returns on Tuesday.

The actress will play Madame Hydra in the upcoming episode, following her introduction to the show in the Season 4 premiere as Aida, then as Agnes later in the season. The episode was screened at WonderCon on Saturday, and Entertainment Weekly has a first-look photo of Jansen in character.

“Since we’re bringing back Hydra in the Framework, we thought we’d bring it back with a force to be reckoned with,” executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen said in a statement to EW. “Madame Hydra is a villain with the perfect combo of strength, sexy, and scary. We’ve thrown many challenges Mallory’s way and she’s always up for the task. We’re excited for fans to see how she makes Madame Hydra come to life.”
