Chloe Bennet (born Chloé Wang, April 18, 1992)[3] is an American actress and singer. She is commonly known for her role as Daisy Johnson (formerly known as Skye) in the ABC spy-fi series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Early life

Bennet was born in Chicago, Illinois, United States,[3][4] the daughter of Stephanie Lynn Crane, an internist, and Bennet Wang,[5] an investment banker.[6]

Her father is Han Chinese and her mother is Caucasian-American.[7] She has six brothers: three biological, two foster and one adopted; two are African-American and one is Mexican-Filipino.[5] She attended St. Ignatius College Prep.[5] At 15, she moved to China to pursue a singing career,[6] under the name Chloe Wang ().[2]

Career

While in China, Bennet lived with her Shanghainese paternal grandmother in Shanghai,[3] and studied Mandarin.[6] She performed as a singer and then moved to Los Angeles, California.[6] Her first on-screen appearance was as a host for the short-lived TeenNick summer dance series The Nightlife. She appeared in the 2011 music video for South Korean band BIGBANG‘s extended play musical recording Tonight.[8]

While pursuing an acting career in Hollywood, she changed her name to “Chloe Bennet”, after having trouble booking gigs with her last name.[7] According to Bennet, using her father’s first name rather than his last name avoids difficulties being cast as an ethnic Asian-American while respecting her father.[7]

From 2012-13, she played a recurring supporting role in the ABC drama series Nashville as Hailey.[9] In December 2012, she was cast as a series regular on the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.[9][10][11] which premiered on September 24, 2013, where she portrays the character Daisy “Skye” Johnson/Quake.[12]

In 2017 she was cast in the MGM’s musical remake of the 1983 Martha Coolidge film, Valley Girl as the “Queen Bee” Karen.[13]
