Chloe Bennet grew up on the south side of Chicago and at the age of 12 she joined the Second City Youth Ensemble, where she studied acting and improv. At 15 she was discovered by a music manager who immediately signed her and she recorded with some of the same songwriters and producers behind Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, and Madonna, among others.

In the summer of 2010, Bennet landed her first role as a co-host on the TeenNick television show The Nightlife, and guest starred on ABC's Nashville. Now she rocks Tuesday nights as Skye on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
