Disney Channel Star Dove Cameron Joins Agents of SHIELD Cast

Descendants alum Dove Cameron will join the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for the show's fifth season. On social media, Cameron announced her S.H.I.E.L.D. role with some help from Clark Gregg's Phil Coulson.

The news was later confirmed by the official Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Twitter account, which welcomed the Descendants actress. The short video, which you can see below, doesn't offer any indication as to who Cameron may be playing; however, it would appear she's working closely with Coulson and the rest of the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang, as he pulls her away before she can spill any secrets. It's currently unknown if Cameron will appear in a recurring role or as a series regular.
