Who is Dove Cameron playing on Agents of SHIELD season 5? This is clearly a question that the powers that be want you to ask. It’s too bad that they are not in any hurry to offer up answers one day after the surprising casting news was first revealed. The Liv & Maddie star is a great addition to the show — she’s got a huge following, and this is a chance for her to do something very different to what she’s done over on the Disney Channel.
Not only is this genre different for Cameron, but apparently the same could be said about her role. While executive producer Jed Whedon isn’t dishing out any cold, hard details, he did make it clear recently to Entertainment Weekly that the actress isn’t playing a part that you would immediately consider her perfect for:
“Who Dove is playing is a wait and see … All I can say is we were looking at different people and she surprised us. The role she’s playing, she’s not an obvious fit for.”
Yet, it seems like this role does still end up being perfect for her in some shape or form anyway.
If we had our own guess to make about what part she is playing, it would be that Dove is going to be some sort of secretly-ancient Inhuman full of knowledge, or a ruthless villain who is one of SHIELD’s latest rivals. You want to give her something meaty to sink her teeth into, especially since there are going to be a good many people watching Agents of SHIELD who are getting exposed to her for the first time. We’re not sure how many of them are going to be altogether familiar with her past work, though we’re sure that there are many Disney Channel viewers who are going to be eager to come over and see some of what she brings to the table here.
Unfortunately the one thing we’ll say for sure is that you shouldn’t expect to see Dove Cameron on Agents of SHIELD any time soon. Given that she just landed the role, we have a hard time thinking that she’ll be appearing much earlier than the midway point of the season.
