A.K.A. Jessica Jones Lands Rachael Taylor

January 29th, 2015 by Todd Black Comments



In another big addition to Marvel and Netflix’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones cast, Rachael Taylor has been added as Jessica Jones’ best friend Patricia Walker.

Don’t think this is just a typical best friend role, Walker is the “emotional anchor” to Jones. She’s her confidant, and she’ll be part of the reason that Jessica takes on her most dangerous case.

“The character is a star and a powerhouse, and required an actress who is both,” said Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg. “Rachael is all that and more!

“Rachael’s ability to embody a character that must balance both the darker and lighter elements of our series will provide a perfect emotional anchor for Jessica Jones,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television. “Rachael blew us away with her grounded, humanizing take on Trish, adding yet another layer to the complex, emotional story we’re telling with this series.”

It should be noted, that Walker has been a superhero in the comics, taking on the mantle of Hellcat, it’s probably not going to happen in this series, but you never know…
