Last year fans learned Skye's true identity as Daisy Johnson in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and now actress Chloe Bennet has completed her transformation into Daisy with a new hairstyle! Get a look at her Daisy Johnson-inspired locks along with a photo comparing her old look to her new style before Season 3 of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesday, September 29 at 9:00 PM ET on ABC. The photos come courtesy of People, who also spoke to Chloe Bennet about her new look. Here's what the actress had to say about how her haircut compares with Daisy's hairdo in the comics.
"The comic book version of Daisy Johnson has very short, Miley Cyrus-esque hair. We wanted to stay true to the comic book character fans love; I wanted to please them but also make sure there was still some movement and length and sexiness in the hair."
Now that her Inhuman transformation is complete, Daisy will be leading a group known as the Secret Warriors in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3. In the Marvel Comics, other members of the Secret Warriors include Slingshot, Stonewall, Manifold, Druid, Phobos and Hellfire. None of these characters have been confirmed for this new season yet, but it should be noted that Stonewall is the son of Carl "Crusher Creel, a.k.a. The Absorbing Man", in the comics. The Absorbing Man was played by Brian Wade last season, but it isn't known if he will return in Season 3, or if any of these other Secret Warriors characters will be present. When asked about how she reacted to her new hairstyle, Chloe Bennet had this to say.
"It was crazy. I cried a little bit, to be honest, and definitely had some anxiety. I should have brought tequila with me. 100 percent. (Now) I'm in love with it. And I think for the character, it is going to be awesome."
It was revealed during the show's Comic-Con panel earlier this month that another Inhuman character named Lash will be introduced in Season 3. This character has the ability to absorb and redirect energy. In the Marvel Comics, Lash was born in a different Inhuman city than the one introduced in the show, and he would often judge if those who received Inhuman powers were actually worthy of them. It remains to be seen if this story arc will be used on the show or not.
In related news, Deadline reports that Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has added actor Andrew Howard in a recurring role for Season 3. The actor will portray Banks, who is described as "an authoritative and intimidating agent." It wasn't clear if the role is based on a character from the Marvel Comics or not, but we'll have to wait and see. The actor has previously starred on the big screen in Limitless and Taken 3, and most recently on the small screen in Bates Motel.
