As Robbie Williams and Michelle Ryan et al will testify, it is notoriously difficult to conquer America. But one British actress is about to storm the barricades, and captain the US of A.
Huge congratulations to Hayley Atwell who has just landed her own major TV series Stateside in a new spin-off to Captain America. The London-born actress , 31, is about to start work on Agent Carter, which will be out at the end of the year. It comes just weeks after she completed filming on the second Capt America movie, playing bolshy agent, Peggy Carter.
This is the first big US TV series for any Brit since ex-EastEnder Michelle Ryan landed the lead in short-lived Bionic Woman some seven years ago. I’m told: “This is a massive deal for both Hayley and Marvel comic fans. “It’s Marvel’s major project of 2014, and it will be a big budget production.
