Hollywood actress Hayley Atwell is just one of international stars expected to visit Manila this August.
The star of Marvels's Agent Carter has been identified as the first Hollywood headliner of AsiaPOP Comic Con 2016, which will take place from August 26 to 28 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Hayley, who is best known as Peggy Carter in the first two Captain America films, will be coming to the Philippines along with other celebrity guests.
As Peggy Carter, she became known as the one great love of Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).
She reprised this role in 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man.
Her character is also recognized as one of the founding members of SHIELD (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division).
In 2015, Hayley got to star in her own show, the 1940s-period superhero series Agent Carter where she could be seen doing administrative work while going on secret missions for Howard Stark.
The British-American actress has been in the industry for more than a decade now. She earned a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 2009 Olivier Awards for her role in A View From the Bridge.
Having a background in classical theatre, Hayley also lent her voice to the recent Audible production of The Oedpius Plays as Antigone. For her next project, Atwell will play the lead role (Hayes Morrison) in the upcoming American legal drama television series, Conviction.
