We’ve known for quite some time that actress Dove Cameron would be joining the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but it wasn’t until now that we knew which role she would be playing.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Cameron will be playing Ruby, a character seemingly original to the show. EW describes Ruby as a young woman of “cunning intelligence” that happens to have a “mysterious obsession” with Chloe Bennet’s Daisy Johnson. And remember General Hale (Catherine Dent), that bad ass government agent we saw in the Fitz/Hunter-centric episode earlier this season? Ruby happens to be her daughter.
EW also provided a first look at Cameron’s character.
Outside of her name and a brief description of the role, nothing else is known about Ruby. We do, however, know that the Disney Channel star will make her Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debut over a month from now on the March 2 episode.
