JESSICA JONES Casts Janet McTeer As Character With “Enormous Impact”

Meet the first new cast member joining JESSICA JONES Season 2!

Jessica Jones is revving up for Season 2 with the addition of a Golden Globe winner and two-time Academy Award nominee!

British actress Janet McTeer (The White Queen, Damages) will play “an undisclosed character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life,” according to a Marvel press release. Meanwhile, a recent tweet from the show’s official Twitter account gets a little more specific, identifying McTeer’s character as Jessica’s new neighbor.

Without a name, it’s hard to say whether or not this new character has comic book origins, nor do we know how she has an impact on Jessica.

“We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast,” Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb, said in the statement.

No word yet on when Jessica Jones Season 2 will hit Netflix.
