Agents of SHIELD - Ming-Na Wen Interview

IGN: You shot the pilot at the very beginning of the year and then there were several months before you began filming the second episode. Everyone assumed the show would be picked up to series, but was it great to actually finally get to jump back into it?

Ming-Na Wen:
Well, it was pure torture just waiting and waiting and waiting for months on end. And now that we’re in the thick of it and all this great buzz that we’re getting, it’s just… I’m living the dream, man! This is great. It doesn’t get any better than this, Eric! It really doesn’t.

IGN: As you mentioned, the buzz is huge for this show. Is it all just exciting or does any trepidation come with that?

Ming-Na Wen:
It reminds me of the moment right before I have to get onstage for a performance. Those butterflies that you get and the nervousness… It’s that anticipation. That feeling of, “Okay, how are they going to respond?” But now that we’ve been getting so much positive feedback, I just can’t wait for everybody to see it, you know? Because we have a really good show and I am so proud of it and I just want everybody to have that chance to share and be entertained by it.

IGN: When Coulson brings Melinda back, it’s clear something happened that made her stop being a field agent. Now that you’ve filmed a few episodes, have you been learning a bit more about her?

Ming-Na Wen:
Oh, absolutely. I don’t think I’ve ever loved a character more, because she’s complex and she’s mysterious, but at the same time, I think she compartmentalized whatever it was that took her out of the field – and now that she’s back in the game, she’s back in the game. There’s definitely going to be opportunities when the audience get to see those small moments or that moment when you really see her become vulnerable. And that’s what’s so great about doing a television show is that we have the luxury of time to explore it. It’s a good novel, a page-turner.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
