Marvel Television and Netflix announced today that Golden Globe winner and two-time Academy Award-nominated actress, Janet McTeer (Tumbleweeds, Albert Nobbs, Me Before You), will join the cast of Marvel’s Jessica Jones for Season 2 in an undisclosed character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life.
Marvel’s Head of Television and Executive Producer, Jeph Loeb stated:
“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.”
Series creator and Executive Producer, Melissa Rosenberg added:
“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.”
