Hayley Atwell Cast As Love Interest Peggy Carter In 'Captain America'

English actress Hayley Atwell has been cast as Peggy Carter, who in the comics played Captain America's love interest during World War 2 and also was an agent helping the French Resistance.

Atwell clinched the much sought after role after screen testing in London last week.

She will join Chris Evans who plays the titular character, Sebastian Stan who is cast as Captain America’s sidekick, Bucky Barnes while Hugo Weaving is still in negotiations to play the villainous Red Skull in the Joe Johnston directed movie.
