Chicago native Chloe Bennet is really stoked to have a video game character look just like her. But she really wants it to look like her.
The actress, who plays Quake/Agent Daisy Johnson on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” on ABC, made sure that when Quake joined “Marvel’s Contest of Champions,” everything was, well, proportional.
“I actually kind of made a note that I wanted the boobs of my character to be not as big,” Bennet told. “Because they tend to in comics — I think the male artists get a little excited? And I just want young girls to know that you can be awesome and sexy without huge boobs. So I’m kind of excited to have that be some input to the game.”
This isn’t the first time that Bennet has had that particular note when it comes to her character taking on a life outside the TV show.
“I make that a note pretty often for our show,” she explained. “If they’re ever doing mockups I want to make sure that’s not what the focus is about and it’s about who the character is and her backstory and how well she can fight and how smart she is.”
Bennet, 23, was known as Chloe Wang when she grew up near the United Center and attended St. Ignatius College Prep.
The character is not making its debut in the game until this fall, but the mock-up was revealed last week part of Marvel’s Women of Power initiative. And the cartoon Daisy Quake looks “awesome,” according to the actress.
What’s it like with a character in a video game that looks just like you, otherwise?
“I’m really stoked and excited. I’m very excited to get to fight and do stunts without getting injured. On set you definitely walk away with several bruises. So it will be fun to play the game and kind of be in the comfort of my own bed.”
