Actress Rachael Taylor

Actress Rachael Taylor has joined the cats of Marvel’s Jessica Jones series.


Marvel and Netflix have announced that Grey’s Anatomy actress Rachael Taylor will star as Patricia “Trish” Walker in Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones, an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015 following Marvel’s Daredevil.

Netflix recently added former Doctor Who and Broadchurch star David Tennant to the cast of the 13-episode show alongside Breaking Bad‘s Krysten Ritter, who plays the show’s lead and American Horror Story’s Mike Colter.


Jessica Jones is set after a tragic ending to Jessica Jones short-lived super hero stint, as she’s rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.

The series will be released on the streaming service later this year, along with other Marvel series DaredevilLuke Cage and Iron Fist.

Rachael’s character Trish is 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, she helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica’s career.

“The character is a star and a powerhouse, and required an actress who is both,” enthuses Executive Producer/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.”
