When Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. began in 2013, it was a way for the Marvel fanatics to satiate their Marvel thirst. The show in the initial few seasons gave us some conjectures to work upon and cryptic messages to solve. There were also some exciting cameos (say Samuel L. Jackson in season 1) that made us totally ecstatic! So, when the series has finally come to an end, we do want to know how the stars feel about it.
While cherishing some old memories, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast had a lot to say. Clark Gregg expressed that he loved how the story arc of the show progressed over time. Even though the crossovers were pretty fantastic, like Winter Soldier cross-over in season 1, the show really took off when the stories became original.
He thinks that the writers took a lot of chances and it all paid off very well. The makers tried to give the characters of the show their original story and that really paid off. We think it’s totally true because by the end of the show, the fans were watching the show for the sake of it original story.
Ming-Na Wen, when looking back, does not think that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1 was as good as the other seasons. She says that the series had to coordinate with all the new Marvel movie releases and that really hampered the series and character arcs.
Iain de Caestecker believes that it was the scene where Elizabeth had to sacrifice herself that made all the difference. He said that Elizabeth brought the emotional side brilliantly into the episode and no other cast member knew that it could happen.
He thinks that it was the major turning point for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and from there on, a lot for him changed too.
