Hayley Atwell, best known for playing Peggy Carter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is the latest star to be added to the guest list for MCM London Comic Con, meeting her fans on the Saturday and Sunday of the UK’s biggest pop culture celebration.
Atwell first played badass British agent Peggy Carter in World War II-set 2011 blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger, going on to reprise the role in 2014 sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The London-born actor also starred in spin-off TV series Agent Carter – which saw the tough Peggy beating up bad guys, uncovering conspiracies and fighting the everyday sexism of her colleagues in post-war America – as well as making cameos in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
While Atwell is most famous for playing Peggy Carter, Marvel’s gun-toting secret agent is by no means the only string to her bow – not only is Hayley an accomplished stage actor, but she has also appeared in films such as The Duchess, Brideshead Revisited and Woody Allen thriller Cassandra’s Dream and TV shows such as Black Mirror, The Pillars of the Earth and the upcoming Howards End.
