Played by Brett Dalton
While Agent Ward is highly trained in combat and espionage, he sometimes fails at interpersonal relations. He’s a man of few words, but always cool under fire and ready for action. Fiercely loyal, he would give his life for S.H.I.E.L.D.
Agent Grant Ward is the guy you send in to single-handedly take care of a situation. He is used to working alone. If you need someone to diffuse a bomb, he’s your man. Agent Ward is in his element when working alone which makes Agent Coulson’s decision to bring him on board as part of a close knit team an interesting one. Ward is clearly not used to being close to people, he reacts with surprise to physical contact and even the simplest of jokes sails right over his head.
