AGENT CARTER: Hayley Atwell Talks Filming Season 2 [ABC]

Hayley Atwell Discusses L.A. Setting in Agent Carter Season 2. Production on the second season of Agent Carter begins soon, but Hayley Atwell is already feeling excited to start filming as her character Peggy Carter moves on from the Big Apple to the Hollywood glamour of Los Angeles.

During her time at the CTV Upfronts in Toronto, Hayley Atwell touched upon what’s coming for the second season of Marvel’s favorite spy. As the show moves into the City of Angels, Peggy is about to get a taste of the glamorous life. Atwell offered a tease of what the second season will be like when Carter tackles L.A.

We’re going to LA for season 2. I kind of keep thinking L.A. Confidential in my head when I think about season 2 – there’s a very dark glamour to it.  And there’ll be lots of beautiful shots of the rolling Hollywood hills and palm trees and maybe Peggy sitting in a convertible, with a head scarf, looking fabulous.  I love playing her. ..I know her so well, you’re not creating a character from scratch anymore, she’s established, so we can have more fun with [the show].

What Hayley Atwell likes about filming Agent Carter is the stunts she gets to do on set. In order to make the show as genuine as possible, Hayley insisted that she does most of her own stunts.

I love [the stunts].  I insisted that I do all my own stunts.  I have two stunt coordinators who trained me up – it’s like a dance.  It all feels fluid, you have to get the right movements and make sure there’s enough distance between you and the stunt men so you don’t hurt them – which I’ve done many time.  [But] it’s a blast.  You get to channel any tension or aggression you’ve got.

With the writing room open for the actress, Hayley expressed her excitement to see what they come up with for her character. The writers apparently have been asking if the actress can sing or dance, so maybe we can see a musical episode coming soon? As far as her trip to the sets of Captain America: Civil War goes, Hayley said that she was only there visiting friends. It’s too early to tell, but we are betting that she wasn’t just in Atlanta to see friends and not film anything.
