How does it feel to be almost at the 100th episode?
We’re at the point where I get really nostalgic. this has been such an incredible growing experience for me, on and off, camera. I was 21 when I started the show and I’m 25 now. It’s been some game-changing years. From Skye to Daisy to “goth” Daisy to “Bangs” Daisy to the one coming up – there’s even more names, so get ready for that – it’s felt weirdly organic.
What’s been your greatest challenge on the show?
the hardest thing of all is anytime I actually have to drive a car, or a Vespa. I can ride on top of a car, fall off a car, fight Hydra or fight aliens, but for some reason driving is still the hardest. I was able to stall an automatic Lamborghini in the first season.
What’s the level of intensity for this season?
they don’t get to rest. I’m sitting in a chair covered in fake blood right now.
What’s the appeal of the space storyline this year?
I think people who love other MCU movies will really get a kick out of this season. the aesthetic of the show is completely different. It’s so vibrant!
Is there a moment or line that sums up Daisy the best?
I was just on Instagram the other day and someone sent me the line from the pilot where I say, “With great power comes a lot of weird crap that you are not prepared to deal with,” and that line has stayed true to the character. It’s what she’s been through, and what I’ve been through as an actor on the show and as a role model for young girls. It’s incredible.
Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg are all smiles.
The dream duo bringing some sass to the show.
