Adrianne Palicki has recently revealed that she very nearly turned down the role of Mockingbird on ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ because she had her heart set on playing another Marvel character.
“They approached me and were interested in me for the role,” she told EW.
“Of course, I’m a huge comic book fan and have been forever. My brother’s a comic book writer.
“Playing an action hero is always exciting, but it was scary, because I was like, ‘I will never be able to play another Marvel character if I go forward in this role’. There was a lot of questions and a lot of weighing the options. The showrunners were very convincing. I’m glad that we all came together and I got to be this character.”
Palicki went onto add that she is fully into her new comics role now and hopes that Mockingbirds role in ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ will be extended throughout the series run as well as maybe playing the role in the movies.
