Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. so-called "girl in the flower dress" is living up to that name in her next role.

Ruth Negga has been cast as former hitwoman Tulip O'Hare in AMC's adaptation of the comic series Preacher. This is the first cast announcement for the series, which is being developed for television by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, who created the original Preacher comic series for DC's Vertigo imprint, is on-board as co-executive producers.

There's no word yet on if Negga's role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would continue if Preacher goes forward as a television series. Negga recently filmed a role in the Jimi Hendriz biography film All Is By My Side and is set to play the role of Lady Taria in the cinematic adaptation of the video game series Warcraft.
