ABOMINABLE

CHLOE BENNET (Yi) is an actress, recording artist and activist, best known for her leading role as Daisy Johnson (aka Quake) on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which was recently picked up for its seventh season on ABC. A native of Chicago's South Side, Bennet grew up in a multicultural family consisting of her first-generation Chinese-American father and Caucasian mother, along with six brothers-three biological siblings and three adopted (two brothers who are African-American and one brother who is Mexican).

Bennet was educated in the Montessori system, where she developed a love for performing and singing. At the age of 12, she joined the Second City Youth Ensemble, studying acting and improv. A few years later, she was discovered by a music manager who immediately signed her and arranged for her to move to China, where she lived with her paternal grandmother and began intensive Mandarin studies in Shanghai. During this time, she began making regular trips to Sweden to record with some of the same songwriters and producers behind Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna, among others.

Bennet recorded and released her first single and video in China for her song, "Uh Oh." The song and the video were shot in English and Mandarin and went on to become hugely popular in China. Based on the success of her "Uh Oh" video, she was invited to perform at the Zebra Music Festival, a three-day charity event to benefit victims of the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. With over 30,000 people in attendance, the event was broadcast to more than 100 million homes in China. It was Bennet's first live performance, and she emerged as one of the most impressive acts on the bill. Her performance led to other opportunities and, most importantly, got Hollywood's attention.

In summer 2010, Bennet landed her first television role as a co-host on the TeenNick television show The Nightlife, opposite Nick Cannon. Bennet quickly transitioned to scripted work with a recurring role on the first season of ABC's Nashville before joining the Marvel family later that year. Next up, Bennet will make her theatrical debut in MGM's musical remake of the '80s classic Valley Girl. She has also done voiceover work as Quake in Marvel Animation's Marvel Rising franchise.

Bennet recently co-founded Represent. Us. Now. (RUN), a new civic platform for the fastest-growing racial group in the United States: more than 21 million Asian American Pacific Islanders (AAPI). RUN is focused on building AAPI citizen power from the ground up through live events, creative campaigns and digital storytelling.
