ABC announced on May 10th that they’ve picked up the pilot for the Marvel television series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Wasting no time to promote the show, a teaser trailer was also released. While it’s only 32 seconds, we catch a glimpse of actress Ming-na Wen (as character Melinda May) punching a guy in the face at the :18 mark.
Other cast members include: Clark Gregg (who reprises his role from the Marvel films as Phil Coulson), Elizabeth Henstridge (“Agent Jemma Simmons”), Iain De Caestecker (“Agent Leo Fitz”), Brett Dalton (“AgentGrant Ward”), Chloe Bennet (“Skye”) and J. August Richards.
When Leah Murakami watched the acrobatics of the Blue Angels at the Point Mugu Airshow, the then-10-year-old knew she had to fly. By 15, she managed to save up enough to take her first flying lesson and got her pilot’s license on her 17th birthday.
The first Asian female fighter pilot in the U.S., Murakami is today a commercial airline pilot and avid traveler. She knows a thing or two about life on the road, so we asked her for some tips on being a happy traveler.
