  • "They’ve left it open. We haven’t really spoken about it, so I don’t know what to expect. I think they left the door ajar for him. He’s still around. He’s in a happier place now, but who’s to say if that’s going to remain that way. I don’t know. It would be fun. I would enjoy it."
  • "That was never so true to me as doing ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ I really like that character. I miss being able to get back into that character’s skin, because it’s been a couple months now. I liked his journey. I liked what they were asking me to do and what they expected me to do. Even to the point of that actual goodbye scene that I had with Chloe, or with Daisy, was real. I mean it was very hard to speak because everything just kind of kept coming up and getting locked in the throat because it was so emotional that this was the goodbye. And I knew it was the goodbye."
