Janet McTeer (Tumbleweeds, Me Before You) will join Marvel’s Jessica Jones for season 2, it was revealed today.
The Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominated actress will join the cast in an as yet undisclosed role. However, Marvel reveals that McTeer’s character will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life.
“We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast,” said Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb. “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.”
“We couldn’t possibly be more excited to work with Ms. McTeer for our second season,” said series Creator and Executive Producer, Melissa Rosenberg. “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.”
“Janet McTeer is the consummate actor, slipping seamlessly into each character she brings to life,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of original content at Netflix. “We’re thrilled to have her join the outstanding cast, led by the fearless Krysten Ritter.”
All 13-episodes of the first season of Jessica Jones are now streaming on Netflix.
