She will play a S.H.I.E.L.D. Veteran, Isabelle Hartley, called in to help Agent Phil Coulson rebuild the American espionage organization. But the character of Isabelle Hartley hides many mysteries and it is not yet entirely clear if this character will be a lesbian.
According to 2 Paragraphs, based on the original Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comics, Lawless’ character Isabelle could very well be the one that dated the late Victoria Hand.
Writer and producer Jed Whedon neither confirmed nor rejected this idea by saying that "there’s always a chance."
We should know more soon since “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will premiere on September 23 at 9 PM ET on ABC.
