How is being Daisy Johnson making things different for Skye?
MARVEL TELEVISION BLACK SITE, CALIFORNIA. For “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” star Chloe Bennet, the process of integration into the Marvel Universe has been gradual.
Bennet’s Skye started out as a hacker thorn-in-the-side of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team and, if we’ve being honest, a lot of fans didn’t really love her.
But then an interesting thing happened and Skye became an increasingly integrated S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and proved herself capable of helping save the world and that, plus a new hairstyle, helped viewers begin to embrace the character, while also wondering about her potential secrets.
Well, in the “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” fall finale, Marvel enthusiasts finally discovered who Skye truly is and let’s just say that the excitement has grown exponentially.
Of course, casual viewers who don’t know what an “Inhuman” is and don’t gain any insight at all from learning that Skye’s name is really “Daisy Johnson” still don’t know who or what Skye is and Skye doesn’t realistically know who or what she is.
Early this week, Bennet sat down with reporters on the highly secretive and stealthy “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” set and discussed those revelations and what’s coming when “S.H.I.E.L.D.” returns next week.
But if you’re still in the dark, you may not want to click through and read what Bennet had to say about her evolving character.
“Growing up with six brothers, I’ve never really seen any Disney princess movies like ever actually, so I’ve always wanted to be an action star or action hero more than I ever wanted to be any sort of Disney princess. It’s been a dream for a while so it’s been cool,” Bennet told the assembled press.
For this interview, Bennet was in the rarest of positions for stars of the notoriously hush-hush show, the position of being [relatively] forthcoming. See, thanks to the midseason finale, we at least know certain truths about Skye, but Bennet was doing her interview paired with new cast addition Luke Mitchell and over the course of 14 minutes, there wasn’t a darned thing he could say.
“[T]hey told me probably about two days before,” Bennet said of the fall-finale reveals. “but I found out and kept it a secret, which is really impressive for me, like two weeks beforehand.”
She joked, “I thought I was She-Hulk for a while, so I’d been working out a lot.”
