Dove Cameron Joins ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ In Mysterious Role

As we count down the hours to the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season five, one more piece of news has emerged. Dove Cameron (known for her Disney Channel roles on Liv & Maddie and Descendants) will be joining the show. The actress posted a cute video of herself on her Instagram, about to share details regarding her role until Agent Coulson himself shows up to silence her. TV Line confirmed Cameron’s involvement, as well.

Not long after this, (a few) more details emerged – courtesy of some of the show’s top bosses. Naturally, their details only deepen the mystery. Executive producer Jed Whedon told EW that Cameron is playing “a wait and see,” and then added,

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.

Executive producer Jeffrey Bell then added that Cameron “came in [for the part] and nailed it” – which Whedon agreed with. The two weren’t willing to share anything else about Cameron’s role, other than to say she is not playing the Kree woman who was in the trailer.

Agents of SHIELD season five premieres tonight(!) on ABC – so maybe we won’t have too much longer to wait to discover Dove Cameron’s mysterious role.
