Reddit!! It's Chloe Bennet here, I play Skye (the racially ambiguous brunette who has somewhat of a man voice) on Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. I'm A Chicagoan and the only girl of six boys. To be honest I mostly got into acting because I am horrible at all things athletic.

Batmanstolemywaffles619 karma

Hey Chloe,

So I was browsing music videos when I stumbled upon your Chinese music video. So I must ask, what do you prefer more, acting or singing? In addition what are your opinions on the show Arrow?

Edit: Uh Oh

ChloeBennet850 karma

First off... I apologize and I feel like I owe you 3 minutes and 56 seconds of your life back...after watching that terrible video! hah I much prefer acting

What's the most awkward moment growing up with six brothers?

ChloeBennet1373 karma

I ate bacon 2 hours ago. And I don't regret a thing.

AcousticBoom539 karma

Hey Chloe! Love the show. According to IMDB, you studied Mandarin. Have you ever used this "super power" to overhear someone talking about you and throw it back in their face?

ChloeBennet1415 karma

a few guys in the airport were talking about me in mandarin saying that they should not stand behind in the security line because they thought I would take long...so I took my sweet time just to annoy them!

wynnewong517 karma

Do you ever speak Mandarin to Ming-Na?

ChloeBennet1192 karma

We do! On set we talk about people in front of them, and we pretend like were saying nasty things but really we just compliment them. Its good fun

sylerwind494 karma

What do you think of Skimmons?

ChloeBennet1245 karma

NBref13460 karma

Hi Chloe. What is your relationship with your cast mates on S.H.I.E.L.D? and do any of the actors of SHIELD's personalities resemble their characters?

If you could play any other character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, even a man, anyone at all, who would you chose?

krazykarter341 karma

What's the most embarrassing thing that has happened on set, to either yourself or any of the other actors/actresses?

EDIT: Question from my mom: Who is your favourite super hero?

ChloeBennet559 karma

Simon_Plenderson198 karma

What do you think about doing an AMA with Reddit? Was it something that was suggested to you by PR people or is it something you suggested? I am curious how people that do AMA's view the process.

ChloeBennet436 karma

I love reddit. So i suggested it.

TomRalphio196 karma

I really would not be able to choose. I really love FitzSimmons though. They are perfect humans

spencerquinto139 karma

Which Hogwarts house do you think you would be sorted into? And which one would Skye be in?

ChloeBennet334 karma

I would hope for Gryffindor...but id probably end up in something like Hufflepuff or something. Cause no one wants Hufflepuff..

Zijien136 karma

Tequila?

ChloeBennet282 karma

yes.

erindizmo131 karma

Hi, Chloe! Love the show! I have to know one thing, though. Is there a shower on the Bus? And if not, how do the agents look so good all the time?

(Okay, two things. Cubs or White Sox?)

ChloeBennet291 karma

You know what... I ASSUME there is a shower on the bus. but honestly I have not yet seen it with my own eyes. (Yes. You're thinking correctly.. I have not showered since I began shooting) and SOX. I enjoy watching real baseball ;)

Drawn2D126 karma

Hi Chloe, can you settle an argument for us? Is it Skye screaming in the promo for 1x10 or someone else?

ChloeBennet229 karma

skye is.

jemsimmons125 karma

Is there ant scene in SHIELD in which anyone from the cast actually did improv and the take made it to the final cut? :)

ChloeBennet363 karma

Iain did improv at the "HUB" episode when he was trying to get through the glass doors. funniest shit ever.

thundervengers123 karma

DO you have any idea how much Brazil loves you????

ChloeBennet279 karma

I DONT HAVE ANY IDEA?!

juliaricardoo123 karma

Hi Chloe. Thank you for doing this. I like you and Skye so much. What ir your favorite moment of the Show? What do you think about the relation between Skye and Simmons? And about Skye and May? What was the hardest scene to do in your opinion? And the most funny?

ChloeBennet299 karma

The hardest scenes for me are when we all decide to act like children and goof off.... Clark often likes to start rapping the dialogue..so then we all start rapping and then laughing and most times we cant stop! Thats the most difficult AND funny. And my favorite relationship on the show is that of Skye and Coulson...I just think its a really sweet and endearing make shift father daughter relationship.

NandoStevens122 karma

If AoS had a proper theme song, what other theme song would you want it to be most like?

ChloeBennet351 karma

I would just want the Fresh Prince of Bell Air theme song..

NandoStevens1039 karma

Now this is a tv show all about how / I work for the super secret good guys now / And I'd like to take a minute, all will be revealed / I'd like to tell you how I became an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. /

Grew up as an orphan, born and raised. / Hacking databases was how I spent most of my days. / Rising Tide missions, taking stuff from the man, / And distributing it out from my unsuspecting van. /

When this superstong guy who was up to some good, / Got S.H.I.E.L.D. agents all up in my neighborhood. / They interrogated me and I got real scared and said / "I'm moving in with Coulson to a Bus in the air." /

I joined up with S.H.I.E.L.D. and I met Ward and May / They were kinda jerks to me but I was spying, so hey. / Fitz and Simmons were nicer but their accents were rough. / So I thought nah, forget it, I'm still gonna hack stuff. /

I pulled up to the HUB around seven or eight-er / I almost learned my parent's secrets but Hey, maybe later. / Until Coulson's real Tahiti trip's no longer concealed / I'll just hang on the Bus as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. /

shameless plug - my podcast Mad Bracket Status

ChloeBennet401 karma

thats actually amazing.

acciorachel113 karma

Hi Chloe!

How similar are you and Skye? What's the funniest thing that's happened on set?

Thanks for doing this AMA! Love the show!

ChloeBennet386 karma

Well me and skye definitely look a lot alike.... What we do not have in common is that Im actually quite shit with computers! And the last episode was really fun to shoot because the scene where the mop falls down out of the closet we were all laughing so hard while shooting we had to take a 15 minute break from each other...

Edgerunner10112 karma

Hi Chloe! Thanks for doing this :) Ok, so here's my question: Going into this project were you aware of the Whedon fan-base coming from past Whedon works like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dollhouse? Also, what's your opinion on hula hoops? yea or nay?

ChloeBennet197 karma

well my edgerunner friend. You should know. I have a sparkly purple and pink hula hoop in my trailer that I play with on set. So that being said. Im quite fond.

Xerxster111 karma

If you could have your character appear in a crossover with any show on tv right now, what would it be?

ChloeBennet436 karma

I think it would be funny if I did a crossover on NCIS. I would steal their viewers and then bring them back to my show.

jemsimmons110 karma

Hey Chloe! Who's winning the prank war on set now?

ChloeBennet260 karma

The girls are for sure... but I may be biased.

JSnoob109 karma

After seeing you in S.H.I.E.L.D, honestly thought you're one of the best on there, as intended I'm guessing. You're also gorgeous.

But after reading your replies, I just gotta say you seem hella cool and down to earth. Hope Hollywood doesn't change that!

Enjoy the fame and all the best in your career pursuits!

ChloeBennet203 karma

Thank you... I really appreciate that! At the end of the day... All I do is play dress up for a living. I cant take myself to seriously.

Desecr8or100 karma

Do you know when we'll find out who Skye's parents are?

ChloeBennet197 karma

you know i cant tell you that :)

Adiwik98 karma

If you have as much charisma in the show as you do in life, then i will be looking forward to you on the big screen one day!

ChloeBennet621 karma

Thanks! To make things move quicker you could just buy a really large tv.

TheForthWallBreaker85 karma

If you could change on thing about The Bus, what would it be?

ChloeBennet241 karma

I would add a bathroom. Just for starters.

vivalasausy83 karma

can you eat 3 whole can of beans?

ChloeBennet135 karma

I have never tried... sounds tempting

KoolGMatt82 karma

If you were forced to share an apartment with one superhero in real life, who would be the most helpful with chores, cooking, cleaning, etc.?

ChloeBennet206 karma

Iron man hands down. He has the nicest house.

ChloeBennet203 karma

5'6 with good posture

Danzaemon72 karma

Hi Chloe. I enjoy your show and I'm really digging your AMA. You are obviously angling to be the next Goddess of Reddit, and I support your candidacy.

ChloeBennet104 karma

Well shit. Thank you, I will never be more impressive then a Norwall. So I will never truly be a reddit goddess.

SIXsteamyhippos62 karma

Favorite Marvel super hero. GO!

ChloeBennet200 karma

Im so distracted by your user name I cant respond to you're question. SIX steamy hippos? why six?

the08460 karma

How old is Skye supposed to be on the show? Your age? Younger? Older?

ChloeBennet104 karma

Actually I have no idea..

Lc79258 karma

What sport would you be most apt to try if offered a professional contract to all of them? :)

ChloeBennet176 karma

I kinda want to be really good at an incredibly random sport. Like the sport during the winter olympics where they just sweep ice around or something. What is that called?

LittleZilla56 karma

Hello Chloe, thanks for doing this! I'm going to be greedy and ask you 3 questions but they're all similarly themed, so forgive me :)

1.What's the last album you listened to?

2.What's your favourite song/band of ever?

3.Will there be a musical episode/ would you like there to be one? (a la:Buffy's 'Once More, with Feeling')

ChloeBennet127 karma

The last album I downloaded was A band called "The Wild Feathers" I could never choose a favorite band there are way to many I love I would mostly love to do a musical episode just so I could see Clark rap

gangstamoogle50 karma

Chloe, say something random.

ChloeBennet263 karma

snuggies are just backwards robes.

babi_chatack49 karma

Can you tell me a story of when you were a child?

ChloeBennet246 karma

I once crazy glued my arm to my friends arm so we could have a sleep over.

ChloeBennet59 karma

A show about a world full of superheroes seen through the eyes of ordinary people. And its a Joss Whedon show. So hes awesome.

babi_chatack36 karma

I want to hug you so bad

ChloeBennet89 karma

DO IT. cyber hug

danilui35 karma

We Skyeward shippers have declared you the captain of our ship. I hope you're up for it :)

ChloeBennet65 karma

IM THE CAPTAIN?! well shit. thats exciting. im so game.

TheGoofyGuy25 karma

Hello Chloe! Love the show and your twitter feed. What's your favorite sports team? Do you have any say in what you wear on the show? I somehow imagine you walking around in the same look as Skye or Chloe. Dat red dress doe http://imgur.com/eMAhm9u

ChloeBennet44 karma

I do have a say.. I actually have a lot of the same clothes...Including the exact Leather Jacket! and Im glad you like my twitter feed!

OzW21 karma

I just found out you were the chick in that Big Bang video. Is TOP as dreamy IRL as I imagine?

ChloeBennet33 karma

yes... yes he is.

DanyalGhani19 karma

Okay so before I ask my question, I just want to say you’re so unique because you have this non celebrity vibe to you and I feel like that’s what makes you such an amazing and natural actress, which is why the fans of the show have really taken a liking to not only your character but your real life personality as well, so please don’t ever lose that by going all “Hollywood” on us hah! And with that being said, my question is... What does Chloe Wang really look for in a guy?

ChloeBennet40 karma

Well thanks! I think I have my brothers to thank for that. They basically just love to continuously remind me that I am and will forever be a huge loser. And what do I look for in a guy? haha uhmm. They have to be funny.

yelyahrose18 karma

Hey Chloe! I'm a big fan, love you in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.! If you could have any superpower, what would it be?

ChloeBennet38 karma

I would be able to teleport myself to anywhere... I actually contemplate having that power allll the time. Maybe someday if I think about it enough I will magically get it..

SerThunderBacon14 karma

Hi Chloe! 2 questions, What do you think Marvel did right that led to its bigger success compared to DC and who's your favourite character from each side?

ChloeBennet40 karma

Marvels characters have always been more relatable. And marvel brings a unique sense of humor into everything that they do.

funkybassmannick12 karma

Are you a feminist? Joss Whedon is known for his strong female characters on television. How do you feel playing your role from a gender-critical standpoint?

ChloeBennet59 karma

I dont think it should be such a huge deal that their are strong female characters on shows or in the media. I grew up with a working mother who was a doctor. And I was raised with the mindset that woman can do anything men do. You dont see the media talking about "strong male characters" why do we continue to act like its rare that women can be strong, confident, and in control?? Its not.

wynnewong12 karma

Hi Chloe! Huge fan of SHIELD here :D Read that you've moved to Beijing for a while to pursue a music career. I currently live in China and was just wondering, what did you think of China?

ChloeBennet24 karma

I loved China, I lived in Beijing and Shanghai... I will actually be going back next year for a few things. I cant wait.

RainbowOfUnicorn8 karma

If your boogers would taste like your favorite food, would you eat them in public?

ChloeBennet24 karma

What kind of question is that?!!!....................absolutely.

danilui7 karma

This might be a bit cheesy, but I just wanted to thank you for being you :) Like, the other day I was having a rough day, and I came home to that video of you dancing around Brett, having the time of your life, and it just made my day a lot better. So, thank you. I love you <3

ChloeBennet19 karma

Aw thank you. That is cheesy but very sweet. I appreciate that. If you are having a bad day just force yourself to dance. It always works.

JayCFree3246 karma

two questions of varying importance: The REALLY important one- Lou Malnati's, Giordano's, or Gino's East?

The "less important" one- How familiar were you with the Marvel universe before auditioning for AoS and how much research (comics, movies, novels, etc.) did you do after getting the part?

ChloeBennet23 karma

one: Lous Malnati's----DUH.

two: growing up with 6 brothers... I really didn't watch any disney princess movies or anything like that. I was all sports and comics. So I was pretty familiar... Getting to work for marvel now is a fucking dream. Most girls wanted to be princesses I just wanted to kick ass.

geefeeny4 karma

What are your favorite 'hidden' places to eat at in Chicago? (minus Gold Coast/River North/anythingthatexpensive kind of places) Or just favorite hidden spots in Chicago in general?
