Agent Carter is getting a new villain this season and her name is Whitney Frost–AKA Madame Masque. Whitney is being portrayed by The Newsroom actress Wynn Everett. Everett recently was asked by ABC Publicity about the inspiration for the character, Frost’s connections to the comics, what motivates Frost, whether Frost sees herself as a villain or not, and similarities between Whitney Frost and Peggy Carter. Whitney Frost sounds like she’s going to be quite the threat to Peggy Carter and her allies this season.
