We already brought you part one of our list of 15 things you probably did not know about Agents of SHIELD, and now we’re back with part two! Check out eight more fascinating facts about the hit ABC television show that you definitely (probably) did not know below. You might be surprised by what you find out!
Number Eight: The Stunts Featured on the Show Are Collaborative. While some scenes may require a character to have up to three stunt doubles, the actors all learn their character’s choreography as well. Ming-Na Wen has said that she learns her character’s choreography and performs everything she can unless it’s really dangerous.
Number Seven: There Might Be Some Cameos by the Avengers. Though it hasn’t been officially confirmed, there have been hints that some of the Avengers might make a cameo in the show.
Number Six: The Schedule Requires a Lot of Work. The show begins filming on June first, and it continues until the second week of May. That leaves hardly any downtime for the characters!
Number Five: The Cast Members Prank Each Other. Though we mentioned that the show requires a lot of work, the cast members still find time to have fun. They occasionally play pranks on each other, and one of the funniest instances of these pranks was when Chloe Bennet reportedly filled Iain De Caestecker’s car and trailer with snow!
Number Four: Chloe Bennet Uses Google to Her Advantage. Bennet’s character has to use a lot of complicated words for her lines. In an effort not to sound detached from her character, Bennet researches the terms she doesn’t know so she can truly be her character.
Number Three: Elizabeth Henstridge Called Clark Gregg the Wrong Name. For the entire first week of shooting, Henstridge called Gregg “Greg,” rather than Clark. Gregg didn’t even correct her!
Number Two: De Caestacker Was Shocked by One of the Episodes. At the table read for the episode titled “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” De Caestacker was so shocked by the twist that he refused to believe it. He reportedly responded to the table read by saying “It’s not true” and crossing his arms.
Number One: It’s All Part of Marvel’s Big Picture. While the show’s writers have a relatively free reign on what they can do, there are obviously some limitations. For example, they can’t just kill off Captain America. The writers view the limitations as more of a puzzle than an obstacle. We hope you enjoyed our list of 15 things you didn’t know about Agents of SHIELD!
