SHIELD Adds Superhero Obsessive In Form Of Nashville's Chloe Bennet
Apparently not an agent ofSHIELD, the character of Skye is said to be the sixth and final regular to be recruited for Joss Whedon's upcoming pilot.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nashville's Chloe Bennethas won the role ofa confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She's edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.An edgy talker? Whedon can do those.
It's interesting that an outsider is amongst the regulars. Will her arc see Skye end up being recruited? Or will she forever be that outside voice, maybe even a thorn in the organisation's side?
All things being fair, SHIELD will get rolling on ABC in the autumn.

You don't often see two actresses of Chinese descent get cast as leads in the same show. Hell, you don't often see more than one Chinese actor in a show, period.
Gotta say I was expecting, or at least hoping, for a Latina or black actress to make the cast more well-rounded. I guess she'll do.
Also, didn't we sorta already know the character wasn't an agent? If you look at the original character breakdowns from October, every lead was identified as "Agent" except for her. She is only called Skye.
