Chloe Bennet (born Chloé Wang on April 18, 1992),[1] is an American actress and singer. She is starring as Skye in the ABC series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Early life[edit]

Chloe Bennet was born on April 18, 1992, in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Stephanie and Bennet Wang.[4] Her father is Chinese and her mother is white. She has six brothers: three biological brothers, two African American foster brothers and one Mexican-Filipino brother. She attended St. Ignatius College Prep.[4] At 15, she moved to China to pursue a singing career.[5] She changed her name to "Chloe Bennet" to appeal more to Western media while honoring her father's name.[6]

Career[edit]

While in China, Bennet studied Mandarin in Shanghai[5] and Beijing.[7] She released her debut single "Uh Oh" in both English and Mandarin, followed by "Every Day In Between" solely in English. She then moved to Los Angeles, California.[5] 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 "Tonight", by South Korean band BIGBANG.

From 2012 to 2013 Bennet played a recurring supporting role in the ABC drama series Nashville as Hailey.[8]

In December 2012, Bennet was cast as a series regular on the ABC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.[8][9][10] which premiered on September 24, 2013.  She plays Skye, a hacktivist member of the secret organization The Rising Tide, who is recruited into S.H.I.E.L.D.
