AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
J. August Richards spoke with SFX Magazine about his mystery role in “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” teasing what kind of ability his character might possess.
“This is a role I’ve been preparing for since I was nine years old. It’s literally a dream come true,” Richards told SFX. “Because as a boy my favorite show was ‘Superman’ and my favorite movie was ‘Star Wars’ — along with other science fiction shows and movies. And I always wanted to fly. I’m surprised I’m not one of those kids that jumped off the roof and hurt himself. But you know, I got to fly. As an actor and as a person this is monumental for me.”
