When fans first met Skye (Chloe Bennet) at the beginning of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, she was a rebellious hacktivist who was brought into the fold against her will. Now, she’s almost a completely different person including being a full fledged member of the team, a place Chloe Bennet never saw coming.
With the show primed for major changes heading into tonight’s episode, “…Ye Who Enter Here,” ComicBook.com caught up with Bennet about Skyes growth, if she still ships #Skyeward, and so much more.
What has the journey been like for you, growing with the character of Skye over the course of last season and this one? There’s certainly been a lot of developments, so has that had any effect on you?
I’d like to think, I’ve grown a ton with Skye. The writers and showrunners have been super generous to me with Skye’s storyline and how much growth I’ve had with her. Just look at how far she’s come in the time between the pilot and the first episode of this season?! THEN look how far she’s come since even that episode. It’s been a blast.
Luckily, we’ve been able to keep her self deprecation, her sense of humor and all the things that make Skye, Skye. It’s been a lot of fun to play her, because her growth is my growth too, you know? We both have that ball busting attitude, and at the same time I’ve grown so much as an actor thanks to Clark and the rest of the cast.
When we started this show, nobody knew anyone from anything and a lot of us were still very new at this whole thing. Clark and I have had pretty personal scenes together on screen that a lot of that father/daughter mentorship has translated off screen as well. He’s been a HUGE mentor for me and my growth in this business so it’s a lot of fun to see the interpersonal relationships we have as colleagues, pay off on the show.
