With Kristen Ritter’s Jessica Jones getting set to return to Netflix as part of The Defenders later this year, the Alias ace’s solo show has brought in a new addition for its second season.
As per Variety, Leah Gibson has joined the show as Ingrid, a role described as a street-wise woman trained as a nurse. Genre fans will likely be familiar with Gibson for her roles in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Rise of the Planet of the Apes and briefly in Watchmen. Interestingly, a leaked report back in April had the same character listed and had many speculating that “Ingrid” could well end up being the nefarious Typhoid Mary; a comic book character who has dissociative identity disorder, telekinesis-esque psionic powers, and who has been featured as a hired assassin at times.
The only other new additions for Marvel’s Jessica Jones so far is Oscar-nommed Janet McTeer in a mystery role that is said will have a huge impact on the titular Jones. As for Jessica herself, as alluded to, she’ll be joining Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Mike Colter’s Luke Cage, and Finn Jones’ Iron Fist when Marvel’s The Defenders lands on Netflix on August 18th.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
