This week, Mack and Yo-Yo are leading a revolution against the oppression of the Kree, on the hit TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! The actors who portray the aforementioned characters, Henry Simmons and Natalia Cordova-Buckley respectively, recently spoke about how their characters are preparing for the upcoming showdown.
Mack has gone from wanting to return home, to aspiring to free the future humanity, according to Simmons:
“In the beginning, their mindset was survival, then it shifted to getting home, and the mindset is now to take down Kasius, if that’s possible. I don’t know if that’s possible, but to try to do that. The whole purpose — if they get home, if they have to leave, whatever it may be — is to just leave things in a better place for not only the human race, but also for Flint, who Mack and Yo-Yo have taken a paternal care for.”
Cordova-Buckley talked about Mack and Yo-Yo’s interesting co-leadership dynamic:
“Well, as you know, they’re left in the Lighthouse without the team, so I think both Mack and Yo-Yo have a leadership sort of thing in them. They both could be leaders, but it’s different. I think Mack is more team driven than Yo-Yo is. I think we’re going to see a little bit of how they’re bantering, who makes what decision, him not being very happy that she doesn’t follow orders. I think, after Coulson, if anyone should be the lead of S.H.I.E.L.D., it should be Mack. I think he would make a great director.”
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Agent Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie, and Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena Rodriguez.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Friday nights at 8 pm ET on ABC.
