Making a wildly popular TV show is work. It can be incredibly fun and exciting work, but it's still work. When things get tough at work, sometimes it's good to unwind and relax simply by pranking an unsuspecting colleague. That's exactly what recently happened on the set of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and this time the victim was none other than series lead, Chloe Bennet. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
If you need proof that the simplest of pranks often make for the best pranks, then look no further than this Instagram video. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered its fourth season this week, and actress Chloe Bennet decided to commemorate the occasion by giving fans a glimpse into the show's behind-the-scenes antics. The scene in question came from the season premiere, with Daisy Johnson a.k.a Quake a.k.a Skye attempting to board a bus. Prior to this scene, the crew apparently told her that they just needed "one more take" and when she tried to board the bus, they taunted her by stopping and starting the vehicle -- keeping just outside of her reach.
Although she seemed annoyed by the prank at first, Chloe Bennet eventually cracked a smile and laughed along with the crew -- even if she gave them dual middle fingers in the process. They should just count themselves lucky that she does not have her Earthquake powers in real life.
As fans of the series, it's nice to see that the generally darker tone of the fourth season has not hindered the cast and crew's behind-the-scenes fun. Fans responded incredibly well to the introduction of the demonic Robbie Reyes a.k.a Ghost Rider when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered earlier this week, but his arrival also very clearly signaled a much more intense path for the Marvel series. We're glad to know that -- even when things get tough on camera -- the folks behind this series always know how to have a good time.
