Iron Fist has slowly started revealing the casting of its main characters, and after the reveal of who would be Danny Rand, one of his allies has been shown via Entertainment Weekly.

Jessica Henwick has been cast as martial arts expert Colleen Wing, who runs her own dojo in New York City. She befriends Danny after he returns home from his adventures in K’un L’un. Finn Jones and Henwick are the only actors confirmed for the series so far.

What truly makes this interesting though is that both Jones and Henwick were both characters on the massively popular Game of Thrones. Though they shared screen time together ironically.

Outside of a basic synopsis, not much is known at Iron Fist, though at the rate this is going, that could change.
