What's the true core of this character to you? I mean, I've always felt that Grant Ward was -- at the end of the day -- misunderstood. He's somebody that has actually not a lack of feeling, but so much feeling he doesn't know what to do about it.
The way he is is for a reason.

I think that it's really difficult for him to trust people, and that's only because he's been burned. It's not that there's a lack of love or empathy; I think that there's actually too much.
So, you know, I think what we're seeing is -- hopefully, in this pod -- a nice combination of kind of all of the iterations of Ward that we've seen before. He's not the clean-shaven, "I don't play well with others" version in Season 1, but -- ever since he turned -- he became much more interesting and unpredictable and dangerous, and that's the kind of world I'm trying to live in with him. We want to have moments in there where we're not quite sure if this is that Grant Ward, because that's what the audience is doing too, just as Chloe [Bennett, who plays Daisy "Quake" Johnson] is doing when she wakes up in this Framework.
We're feeling him out. I think we can! Up until now, he's done everything right.
We've got one moment where he did that thing, and I don't know if we can trust him. That's kind of the line you want to be on, I think, especially for this character after the three seasons of stuff we've seen him do.
That being said, which version of Ward is your favorite so far? Season 3 Ward was my favorite. He was on a warpath against Coulson.
He was using every resource at his disposal. He was just a man on a mission. There wasn't a ton of conflict.
Overall, it's probably a good thing. Being Inhuman and being a S. I think having him on the team helps her open her eyes to seeing other aspects because he's been an Inhuman longer and he's kind of not as sensitive to it or used to, maybe, the criticism and is able to handle it in a less emotional way, so I think maybe it helps her a little bit.
It's always a conversation between your performance and the writers. I don't know if I agree that he's a straightforward villain. He's certainly a reinvention of the character, but you will see he actually does have a philosophy about what the world could be now that he's there, and it's quite inclusive, actually.
It's not about taking over the world and doing all of that stuff, as cool as that is to do. There actually is something there that might be, I would say, in a shade of grey. But it is a combination between the two. On whether Coulson told Daisy off-camera that he'd seemingly killed Ward: I actually don't know that! Did it happen off-camera? I think it happened off-camera. I think word may have gotten out, but I don't know if Daisy and Coulson have really had a conversation about it.
That hasn't played out yet on camera.

I think it has gone without being said, a little bit. That's how I have been playing it. On shooting that creepy Hive goo scene: I was all for it, up until -- I was all for it. You know, I'm a good sport about all these things. On paper, you're like, 'That's awesome! So there were three ones. There was one that was really slippery, one that was kind of thick. Anyway, it spreads a lot. So what I ended up having to do is they put a bucket of this stuff on me and immediately I wanted to be in my trailer.
How long did it take to get off? Did it get up your butt? It got everywhere you'd imagine goo would go. It got everywhere, it was crazy.
And it took forever to wash off. And what I was going to say with that is, I was in the middle of this pool, and they can't help me out, so I'm putting this stuff on my head and my body, and it's going too quickly or not quickly enough -- it wasn't just something that was one of those inconvenient things.
This was as close to a nightmare as I've had on this set.

But I'm glad that it came off well. It spreads a lot. They would put a bucket of the stuff on me, and immediately, I wanted to be in my trailer. How long did it take to get off? Did it get up your butt? You had a gooey asshole. And it took forever to wash off. Chloe, how will Lincoln and Daisy hooking up change their dynamic?
And I think it gets a little bit bizarre because Daisy is more of the leader of the team. Women in the relationship are usually wearing the pants, and I think Daisy probably wears the pants. I think it causes a normal amount of problems. Being Inhuman and being a S.
How does the question of what to do with Inhuman allies and Inhuman enemies impact Daisy, as she assembles her Secret Warriors team? Obviously, they have a few trust issues with some people.
We were on a break! Murdering her friends and family!
Telling her how much I love her.
