Anne Foley: Yeah, I was the assistant costume designer on the pilot and then I took it over when it went to series. SR: How did that come about? AF: I had worked with the costume designer who did the pilot, Betsy Heimann, on several projects before. selection interviewWhen she got the pilot for S.H.I.E.L.D. she asked me if I would be willing to come on as the assistant costume designer, and I of course jumped at the chance because Im a huge fan of Joss Whedon and all things Marvel. So I assisted her on the pilot and then she couldnt do the series because she was already committed to another project, so she recommended me to the producers and they were willing to take a chance on a relatively new designer, thank heavens. SR: Youve been assistant costume designer for some pretty big movies in the past. How does working on a movie like Star Trek Into Darkness compare to working on an ongoing TV series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? AF: Interestingly enough, my time on Star Trek Into Darkness working with the brilliant Michael Kaplan, who was the costume designer, really gave me a good base of knowledge to be able to take over a show like this. Honestly, the biggest difference is probably in scheduling.
