Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was one of the many TV shows that was forced to stop production earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thankfully, production on the show has restarted and appears to be making progress. While a number of the actors still have their share of work to do on the Disney+ series, it appears that Emily VanCamp has actually wrapped filming on her scenes. And the actress marked the occasion with a sweet message.
Upon finishing her work on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Emily VanCamp posted a photo of her chair from the set to Instagram. And in the accompanying caption, she confirmed that she’s wrapped on the show and expressed her love for her character, Sharon Carter. You can check out the post down below:
Like many of her fellow actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Emily VanCamp has a lot of affection for her role, which is understandable when you’ve played a character several times. The post is definitely a nice tidbit that will get fans excited, but it also seems VanCamp was able to complete her work safely with the new guidelines in place, which is, of course, the most important thing.
VanCamp’s Sharon Carter, or “Agent 13,” was originally introduced in 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent assigned to protect Steve Rogers. She does this by going undercover as a nurse who lives next door to him. Carter returns in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, which sees her working with the C.I.A. following the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. And although she doesn’t physically appear in Avengers: Endgame, a photo reveals that she was one of the casualties of The Snap, meaning she was resurrected off screen by Bruce Banner.
Carter’s inclusion in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier came as a bit of a surprise but one that was welcomed by fans who want to see the character fleshed out a bit more. Her exact role is currently unclear, yet Emily VanCamp has confirmed that we’ll find out what she’s been up to since we last saw her – aside from the five years that she was dead, of course.
My personal guess is that Sharon will be working with Sam Wilson/The Falcon and Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier to track down Helmut Zemo. Though if Marvel Studios has taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected when it comes to some of these characters.
Since The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be a six-episode series, there’s a chance to really develop Sharon Carter as a character. It’s been a while since we’ve seen her, and it’s reasonable to assume that after everything that’s happened, she’s changed in some ways. Hopefully, this means Emily VanCamp got to tap into some different sides of her this time around.
We’ll see how things play out for Sharon Carter when The Falcon and the Winter Soldier arrives on Disney+ in 2021.
