Chloe Bennet is an American actress and singer best known for her starring role as Skye, a civilian recruit who is a computer hacker and member of the hacktivist group called "The Rising Tide", in the superhero science fiction comedy-drama television seriesAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Bennet grew up on the Southside of Chicago, in Barack Obama's neighbourhood. Her father is first generation Chinese-American and her mother is Caucasian. Chloe's family consists of six brothers: three siblings are biological and three siblings are adopted (African-American and Mexican respectively).

Additionally and to this day, during any given year, you may find foster and/or foreign exchange students living in Chloe's home; her story is a real life multicultural Cosby Show.

Chloe is an outgoing and gregarious actress who was first educated in the Montessori system. There she developed a love of performing and singing.

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 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 the same songwriters and producers behind Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, etc.

Chloe recorded and released her first single/video in China for her song "Uh Oh." The song and the video were shot in English and mandarin and went on to be a hugely popular in China.

Over 30,000 people were in attendance and the event was broadcast to over 100-million homes in China. It was Chloe's first live performance wherein she emerged as one of the most impressive acts on the bill.

Her performance at the Zebra Muisc Festival led to a number of commercial opportunities and an onslaught of press coverage. She has been featured in print advertising and on billboards throughout China.

She has also been sponsored in China by Nike, Ports 1961 and Umbro, and has likewise been featured in various fashion and lifestyle articles in Chinese Vogue, Elle, In Style, Cosmopolitan, China Daily, and numerous other Chinese publications.
