Dove Cameron’s role on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD revealed
Last November, ABC and Marvel Entertainment announced that actress Dove Cameron had joined the cast of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 5 in a mysterious role. Now, EW has posted a first-look photo of the actress on the series and revealed that she’ll be playing Ruby, “a young woman of cunning intelligence who has a mysterious obsession with Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) — oh, and she’s the daughter of General Hale (Catherine Dent).”
The magazine adds: “General Hale was that high-level government agent who executed her two subordinates after Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) was able to escape the Blue Raven Ridge facility with a cryo-freeze capsule and the Zephyr One.”
Dove Cameron will first appear in the March 2 episode. She is best known as playing the two titular characters in the Disney Channel series Liv and Maddie and also playing Mal, daughter of Maleficent, in Disney Channel’s Descendants movies.
Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Henry Simmons as Agent Alphonso “Mack” MacKenzie and Natalia Cordova-Buckley as Elena “Yo-Yo” Rodriguez.
The series was co-created by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen, who also serve as executive producers along with Jeffrey Bell and Marvel’s Jeph Loeb and Jim Chory.
