Mysterious New Character Coming to Jessica Jones

Janet McTeer Jessica Jones Netflix

Jessica Jones was one of the breakout hits on Netflix in 2015. Fans should be happy to know that season 2 is on its way and already taking form. As Entertainment Weekly reports, Marvel’s Jessica Jones is adding a major player to its roster.

From the Academy to Alias Investigations

Season 2 is off to a good start as the show has just cast two-time Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner, Janet McTeer in a mysterious yet major role. McTeer is known for her work on The White Queen, The Woman in Black and of course Damages. So far all we know is that the British actress will portray ““undisclosed character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life.” McTeer’s casting is also the first addition to the famous show’s sophomore season.

Series creator Melissa Rosenberg could not stop raving about the news,  “We couldn’t possibly be more excited to work with Ms. McTeer for our second season. Her gravitas and authenticity are the perfect ingredients for all we’re trying to create this year. She disappears into roles, gives her characters extraordinary dimension and depth. We’re incredibly fortunate to be able to collaborate with her.”

Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb said, “We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast.” He then spoke more about the hopes for the show’s second season “Our second season of Marvel’s Jessica Jones aims to capture what audiences loved about our first, and Janet will be key to achieving that goal.”

Even the VP of Content at Netflix had something to add about the casting “Janet McTeer is the consummate actor, slipping seamlessly into each character she brings to life. We’re thrilled to have her join the outstanding cast, led by the fearless Krysten Ritter.”

Jessica Jones was an instant hit with fans everywhere and we can’t for season 2 to air. Who do you think McTeer should play in the upcoming season of Jessica Jones? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
