Will take the role of Trish Walker/Hellcat…
Rachael Taylor (‘Transformers,’ ‘The Darkest Hour’) has become the latest addition to the cast of Marvel’s ‘Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones,’ taking the role of Patricia “Trish” Walker in the series.
The Aussie actress will star opposite Krysten Ritter in the title role, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and the recently announced David Tennant, who is set to play the main antagonist, Zebediah Killgrave (The Purple Man).
After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones (Ritter) is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.
The character of Patricia Walker has roots dating back to 1944 with her first appearance in MISS AMERICA MAGAZINE #2, and in the comics, Walker donned the identity of Hellcat, one of the core members of The Defenders.
Marvel describes Walker as “a syndicated radio talk show host, former model and child TV star known to her adoring fans as “Patsy” Walker. As Jessica Jones’ closest friend, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career.”
‘Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones’ is set to premier on Netflix in 2015 following ‘Marvel’s Daredevil.’
