Loeb mentioned the biggest challenge of the first season was finding someone to portray a character who had a long history in comic books, that they looked high and low, and that’s James D’Arcy as Jarvis. This is James’ first time at Comic-Con! Loeb mentioned that while escorting D’Arcy through the back tunnels of the convention center, D’Arcy mentioned that it didn’t feel that crowded.
Tara mentioned that this is the best job she’s ever had, and Hayley chimed in with, “Me too!” D’Arcy remembered being worried when he read the script and that Jarvis had to cook and that he didn’t have the culinary skills. His apprehension came from his skills with souffle. D’Arcy got quite excited when he found out that Jarvis would accompany Agent Carter on the missions, thinking there’d be doing a lot of fighting.
“Well, Hayley will be doing some fighting…”
Hayley pointed out that the quality of the writing that keeps her coming back to the character from movies to one-shots to TV. She jumped at the chance to do it.. Peggy has taken over her life in many ways, especially her fearlessness. That wild abandonment has changed Hayley’s own life.
“I know my value.” She doesn’t need praise from anyone because she has determination and purpose. People come up to Hayley saying, “I know my value, too!”
