Brett Patrick Dalton (born January 7, 1983) is an American actor.

Dalton is perhaps best known for playing Agent Grant Ward on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a role he played for three years. After a year hiatus, he returned to the character for the show's HYDRA arc in season four.

Selected filmography:


He provides examples of:

  • He Really Can Act: One of the major criticisms of the first season of Agents of SHIELD was how bland and bordering on Dull Surprise Ward was. It turns out that it was a fake-out, and Dalton is much more charismatic after the reveal that he's a Hydra agent.
  • Mr. Fanservice:
    • He's had the most shirtless scenes out of all the cast on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., showing off a toned physique. He's said, however, that he doesn't normally look like that and those scenes are planned well in advance so that he can work out in preparation.
    • He was also featured in a People magazine spread due to female viewers liking his Tall, Dark, and Handsome looks.
  • Pungeon Master: He certainly enjoys making puns on Twitter, especially when live-tweeting during an episode of AOS.
