During the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. panel at Heroes & Villains FanFest 2017 in San Jose, CA, Ming-Na Wen (Agent Melinda May) mentions how much she enjoys embarrassing Brett Dalton (Grant Ward) at similar fan events. A short while later, she pulls out her cellphone, calls Brett and leaves a message that he was too “chicken” to show up. (Brett grew up in Silicon Valley but currently lives and work in Los Angeles.) After the panel was over, Brett calls back and Ming-Na tells him that he was “chicken s**t” in front of roaring fans.
