Marvel’s Jessica Jones is adding a major mysterious role in season 2.
Two-time Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Janet McTeer (The White Queen, The Woman in Black, Damages) is joining the cast of the acclaimed Netflix hit, EW has learned exclusively. The British actress will play an “undisclosed character who will have an enormous impact on Jessica’s life.” The casting represents the first major addition to Jessica Jones for the new season.
“We are so fortunate to have an actress of Janet’s talent and stature join what is already an incredible cast,” said Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb. “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.”
Added series creator Melissa Rosenberg: “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.”
“You look beautiful this evening, Y/N!” Ryan Seacrest told you as you started your last red carpet interview. “Y/N is nominated for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy! Best of luck, Y/N!”
You smiled despite being tired of these interviews. “Thank you so much!”
“Now, let’s talk about your upcoming wedding, and that ring,” Ryan said.
You lifted your left hand a little and smiled. “Tom and I are very excited! And this ring is just stunning. I’m very lucky.” You answered. You talked a little about your movie then went back down the steps to Tom.
“Are you ready to walk the red carpet love?” Tom asked as he put his arm around your waist.
You smiled and kissed his cheek. “Let’s go!” You kissed Tom a few times on the carpet and the photographers went crazy. After what felt like an eternity, you went inside.
Sitting at your table was Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, and Andrew Garfield. “So do you plan on having any kids?” Blake asked trying to start a conversation.
You nodded and Tom spoke, “Hopefully in a few years, we’re only 20. How are your kids?”
She beamed as she showed you pictures of James and Ines. “They’re great! Growing up fast, though.” Then the show started and Jimmy Fallon’s cold open was playing. Tom kept his arm around you, or his hand in yours and kept kissing you. The reason for the PDA? He knew you had a crush on Andrew Garfield, the previous Spider-Man, and you kept talking (or as Tom called it ‘flirting’) to him.
It was time for Matt Damon to announce the Golden Globe winner for the only category you were nominated in. Tom gripped your hand as Matt opened the envelope. “The Golden Globe goes to…..Y/F/N Y/L/N!” For a second you didn’t do anything because of the shock. Then you heard the loud applause, and turned to Tom and hugged and kissed him. After making your way on stage and getting the award you spoke into the microphone. “Thank you! The Hollywood Press Association, thank you. And my amazing fiance Tom Holland and his family, I love you guys! The director J.J. Abrams and my co-stars Blake Lively and Will Smith, this wouldn’t have happened without them. And lastly, my amazing fans this is for you! Thank you!” You looked down and saw Tom beaming as you walked off the stage clutching the award.
After the after party you and Tom were in the car. “Babe?” You asked.
“Were you jealous?”
He blushed a little. “Jealous? O-Of who?”
“Of Andrew Garfield!” He nodded slightly. “Awww poor Tommy feels threatened by the old Spidey!”
He rolled his eyes. “Well you have a big crush on him AND you were flirting.”
“You have a big crush on Ariana Grande and I don’t say anything. And I wasn’t flirting. I was talking.”
He laughed. “Whatever. Do you know how proud I am?” He said gesturing to the box containing your first Golden Globe.
“Do you know how proud I’m going to be when you get an award next year?” You asked.
He held your hand. “I won’t be nominated.”
“Deadpool was nominated. Why can’t Spidey be?” You asked. He shrugged. “I love you, Tom.”
He kissed you lightly and then replied, “I love you, too.” And then you put your head on his shoulder and didn’t move until you got to the hotel.
