The Marvel Cinematic Universe is an entertainment force unlike any other. With its expansive projects that reach virtually every genre and delivery method and plans for future work stretching out for years, it’s safe to say that involvement in the MCU is a dream come true for many actors looking to make a name for themselves. Still, not every actor in the MCU is taking home a giant paycheck.
That leaves fans wondering what someone like Chloe Bennet, who plays Daisy Johnson in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has as net worth. Let’s take a closer look at how the actor got involved with Marvel and what it has done to boost her fortune.
Chloe Bennet started acting in 2011
Bennet was born in Chicago in 1992. At the age of 15, the star — who was born Chloe Wang — moved to Beijing, China and lived with her paternal grandmother. She studied Mandarin while starting a singing career under her birth name.
Her singing career helped her land some television appearances, and when she moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting professionally, she started using the last name Bennet, which is her father’s first name.
After a few small roles in shorts and a TV movie, Bennet landed a substantial role on the television series Nashville in 2012. She played a character named Hailey who had a seven-episode arc.
During that time, she was in a brief relationship with main character Gunnar Scott. For a breakout role, this was a considerable amount of screen time for the young Bennet. She followed it up with some voice work in Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast and Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
The MCU offered a big break for Chloe Bennet
While her career was definitely off to a strong start, getting cast as Daisy “Skye” Johnson in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in 2013 was definitely a boost to Bennet’s profile. The role definitely improved her name recognition and got more people paying attention to her work.
By 2014, Elle magazine listed her as a TV star to watch because of her A-list potential. They noted that Bennet brought “a cheeky cleverness” to her portrayal of Skye and further elevated her status. The Marvel role has definitely taken up most of Bennet’s time since her premiere with the MCU. In addition to the main Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D show, she’s also lent her voice to Daisy’s character in several shorts and appeared in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Slingshot mini-series.
She’s found a little time for other projects and played a supporting role in the 2020 musical film Valley Girl. She also has a major part in the upcoming film 5 Years Apart.
What is Chloe Bennet’s net worth?
As Bennet has quickly risen from a would-be Chinese pop star to a significant American television presence, how has her net worth been impacted?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the star is worth an estimated $4 million. While this is nowhere near the net worth of MCU stars like Robert Downey Jr. (who is worth a staggering $300 million) or Scarlett Johansson (who is worth an estimated $150 million), it’s important to remember that Bennet is still early in her career.
Fans are definitely ready to see more of Bennet. Many were even hoping to see Quake (and by extension, Bennet) crossover from S.H.I.E.L.D. to the main MCU movies.
Whether it’s as her well-established Marvel character or as some new acting endeavor, it’s safe to say that fans have not seen the last of Bennet. We’ll have to keep an eye out to see where the star ends up as the series that has commanded most of her time comes to an end.
