Courtesy Chloe Bennett And that emotional connection to her long locks is what had Bennet, in her own words, “s—ting myself for weeks” leading up to a major haircut as she begins filming the new season of the ABC drama. As her character (formerly known as Skye) begins to embrace her more supernatural side, she will begin to look more and more like the Daisy Johnson of Marvel comic lore. “The comic book version of Daisy Johnson has very short, Miley Cyrus-esque hair,” explains Bennet. “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.” RELATED PHOTOS: 10 Celeb-Loved Braids to Try This Summer! Compromising on a “good cut” with a length that everyone could agree on, Bennet took matters into her own hands by making the first cut last Wednesday. “It was crazy. I cried a little bit, to be honest, and definitely had some anxiety,” she says. “I should have brought tequila with me. 100 percent.” But now that she’s gotten used to her shorter look, “I’m in love with it,” she says. “And I think for the character, it is going to be awesome.” Do you love her cut?
