Chloe Bennet (born Chloé Wang, April 18, 1992) 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.
Her father is Han Chinese and her mother is Caucasian-American. She has six brothers: three biological, two foster and one adopted; two are African-American and one is Mexican-Filipino. She attended St. Ignatius College Prep. At 15, she moved to China to pursue a singing career, under the name Chloe Wang (汪可盈).
While in China, Bennet lived with her Shanghainese paternal grandmother in Shanghai, and studied Mandarin. She performed as a singer and then moved to Los Angeles, California. 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.
While pursuing an acting career in Hollywood, she changed her name to “Chloe Bennet”, after having trouble booking gigs with her last name. 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.
From 2012-13, she played a recurring supporting role in the ABC drama series Nashville as Hailey. In December 2012, she was cast as a series regular on the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which premiered on September 24, 2013, where she portrays the character Daisy “Skye” Johnson/Quake.
