Hayley Atwell Continues ‘Agent Carter’ Adventures With January Premiere

Premiering on ABC Tuesday, January 6 (8-10 pm et/pt), Marvel’s Agent Carter follows Peggy Carter’s (Hayley Atwell) post-Captain America adventures, as she works for the covert organization SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve).

Though she’s proven her mettle in the battlefield, Peggy has to balance doing administrative work for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) while undertaking secret missions on the side.

Hayley Atwell, whose previous film credits include the Woody Allen drama Cassandra’s Crossing and The Duchess, talks about Carter’s dilemma when the 7-episode series begins:

We find her in 1946, the year after the end of the first Captain America – we know that she’s lost Steve and she finds herself working at the SSR. It’s a position that’s one that she wants but she’s not used to the full extent of her abilities.

We’ve got the backdrop of gender roles and the politics involved in an environment like that – in a male dominated world for her. So she’s very frustrated – she’s not doing what she’s set out to do. She’s nowhere near (to) fulfilling her destiny. And we see the frustrations (and) what that means to her and her fight to be taken seriously.
