The show in question is the famous “Agent Carter” television series, which stars Hayley Atwell, James D’Arcy, Chad Michael Murray, and Shea Whigham (via IMDb). Set after the events of the first “Captain America” movie, “Agent Carter” is about Peggy Carter (Atwell) and her efforts to clear Howard Stark’s (Dominic Cooper) name after he is implicated in illegal weapons sales. Carter uses all of her wit and skills as an agent to uncover the truth, but her pursuit of evidence uncovers far more than she bargains for.
Vangsness appears in the pilot, “Now Is Not the End,” and is unaccredited for her appearance as Ruby (via IMDb). Only eagle-eyed viewers can catch a glimpse of her, and she doesn’t have much bearing on the inner workings of the hit show. Still, it is always a treat when popular actors are tapped for minor or cameo roles in major franchises, and considering how nerdy Vangsness’ Garcia can be in “Criminal Minds,” it is probably a real honor to even appear in anything related to Marvel at this point. Perhaps if “Peggy Carter” had Garcia on her staff, they would uncover the machinations of HYDRA long before “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Garcia would surely notice the sinister artificial intelligence of Arnim Zola (Toby Jones) lurking about.
