Golden Globe winner and two-time Academy Award-nominated actress Janet McTeer has joined Marvel Television and Netflix’s JESSICA JONES season 2 in a mystery role, who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life.
Jeph Loeb, Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer said:
“We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast. 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.”
Melissa Rosenberg, Series Creator and Executive Producer said:
“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, given her characters extraordinary dimension and depth. We’re incredibly fortunate to be able to collaborate with her.”
