Agents of SHIELD’s Enver Gjokaj reveals Daniel Sousa is out of his depth after time jump to the 1970s – The Sun

AGENTS of SHIELD's Enver Gjokaj has revealed that Daniel Sousa will find himself out of his depth after time jumping back to the 1970s.

The Agent Carter actor reprised his role as Sousa for the Marvel show's seventh and final series, and the season has seen the team time-hopping throughout.

During the latest episode, the team decided to bring Daniel along as the Zephyr as they headed back to 1973, after faking the death of the S.H.I.E.L.D. founding member.

Despite Daniel looking rather shocked as he woke up aboard the futuristic ship, Enver has revealed it was "so fun" to film the scenes but isn't quite sure how his character will handle it.

"As an actor, it was just such a pleasure," he told Entertainment Tonight.

"To be playing somebody from the '50s is already fun enough. And then you get to play somebody from the '40s and '50s who gets to go to the '70s, I mean, it's just an actor's dream."

Revealing how his character feels about landing in 1973 with rock music and roller-blading hippies, Enver said: "He is shell-shocked and he is not going to make the adjustment well.

"And it makes for good drama. I think characters are always at their best when the rug is in the process of being pulled out from under them."

He added: "You're going to see somebody who's adjusting to going from knowing a whole lot about everything to a whole lot of nothing.

"That's not a comfortable place for him to be in, and he's not in a position where he can help as much as when he was in his element, when he was one of the higher-ups in S.H.I.E.L.D. So, it's going to be a difficult time for him."

Meanwhile, Enver said he was shocked at the epic twist in the most recent episode which focused on a day in 1955 when Daniel was set to become "the first fallen agent of SHIELD".

Fans were shocked to discover that he agent didn't actually die that day like the SHIELD history books would have had them believe.

Instead, the SHIELD team hid Daniel on a Zephyr while the robot Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) was shot in his place before pretending to be dead.

Revealing whether the twist means Daniel will now be a permanent member of SHIELD, Enver told TVLine: "I wouldn't get my hopes up too much, but he's on the ride for the time being.

"It was fun for me as an actor to play Daniel in that time period, reacting to that time period. That was a blast for that particular episode."

Agents of SHIELD seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Disney+ while season 7 airs on ABC in the US. A UK release date is yet to be confirmed.
