For seven years, Chloe Bennet has been playing the superhero, Daisy Johnson, aka Quake, on the ABC show, Agents of SHIELD. Over the course of those seven years, she has grown in popularity, and her career has also seen her appear in a couple of significant movies. During this time, we have come to learn more about Chloe Bennet’s personal life, including details about her parents and family members. And so, we have compiled everything we have learned about her family below, including details about her background and other facts you will need to know.
Who are Chloe Bennet’s Parents?
Only hardcore fans of Chloe Bennet would know this, but the Hollywood actress was born as Chloe Wang on the 18th of April, 1992 to Bennet Wang and Stephanie Crane.
Her father, Bennet Wang, is Chinese while her mother, Stephanie Crane, is a Caucasian. They gave birth to her in Chicago, Illinois, as the second child of seven siblings and Chloe is the only daughter.
Chloe Bennet’s parents are working-class people. Her father, Bennet Wang, is an investment banker, while her mother, Stephanie, is an internist (she is a medical doctor who specializes in internal medicine). As a doctor, Stephanie is an accomplished one, as she is known not just for her work in Chicago but across the globe. She is notably one of the doctors who helped save earthquake victims in Haiti in 2010.
Not much is known about her parents’ background or their marriage. So far, all we know is that her father was born on the 8th of October 1960 while her mother was born on the 12th of October, year unknown.
A scroll through the actress’s social media pages shows she has a strong and close relationship with her parents, especially her father. Though she was born and raised in Chicago, Chloe is very fluent in Mandarin, and she moved to China in the early days of her career in show business to pursue a singing career, living with her father’s parents in Shanghai.
Her close relationship with her father raises questions about why her professional name does not bear his last name. According to the actress, she decided to use her father’s first name because she had trouble booking roles in Hollywood because of her Chinese roots, and because it lets her avoid typecasting as an ethnic Asian American.
