In the trailer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we’re introduced to Skye, played by Chloe Bennet, a young hacker who is saying some questionable things about S.H.I.E.L.D. and their motives – only to be found and brought in by S.H.I.E.L.D. themselves.
I spoke to Bennet to find out a bit more about Skye and her perspective on living in a world with superheroes and how the actress, recently seen on Nashville, feels about joining the Marvel universe and working with Joss Whedon.
IGN: Based on the trailer, it seems like your character initially has some skepticism, to say the least, about S.H.I.E.L.D.
Chloe Bennet: She does!
IGN: So what is her reaction when she’s caught by them?
Chloe: I can’t say much about it. But I can say that she is this superhero-obsessed girl, in a way where she’s just in awe of it, but she’s also skilled in the sense that she can kind of get herself into these situations. You know, I think she’s going to enjoy the ride, just like myself. I think she’ll have fun.
IGN: You say she’s superhero obsessed and obviously the show’s about normal people in a world with superheroes. S.H.I.E.L.D. can be a little more jaded, I guess, but is Skye still basically going, “Oh my God! These people are really out there!”?
Bennet: I think she would be more one to play it a little bit cool, but then have those geek-out moments. She’s not quite a cosplay girl, she’s not exactly a fangirl, but she gets really excited — but it’s in here [tapping chest], just like all of us about the show, I think.
GN: What does she make of Agent Coulson?
Bennet: I think her and Coulson could get along. You will have to watch and see how they got on, but yeah… [Laughs]
IGN: And how is it working with Joss on the show?
Bennet: Joss is terrible.
IGN: [Laughs] Everyone says that.
Bennet: He’s really stupid and not talented. No! He is absolutely amazing, and it’s just a pleasure to go to work. Attitude reflects leadership, and he has such a great attitude. So does Jed and Maurissa. It’s really just incredible going to work every day.
Agents of SHIELD is featured in this week’s issues of both Entertainment Weekly and TV Guide. I’ve added the scans to the gallery.
Chloe and her fellow Agents of SHIELD cast members attended Disney Media’s International Upfronts on Sunday. She looked stunning in a cobalt blue dress. I’ve added 41 new photos from the event to the gallery. I also replaced several other event photos with HQ versions. Enjoy!
Over the past couple days I have been hard at work in the gallery, and I’ve added over 3,000 new images. Nearly every album has been updated so it would be difficult to list them all, but here’s some of the highlights. The entire music section is completely new, I’ve added photos & screencaps from all of Chloe’s episodes of the TeenNick show The Nightlife, new appearance photos from 2011 & 2013, and more. Be sure to check them out and keep checking back for more.
I’ve updated the Information section of the site. I’m still working on Chloe’s biography and her music page, but I finished the rest. Details below:
