Jessica Jones: The Superheroine You Need To Know

Missed the launch of the coolest new show last night? It’s time to catch up! Marvel and Netflix have teamed together once again to bring us another epic series Jessica Jones – played by our new girl crush, Krysten Ritter. While Miss Jones appears to want to move on from her superhero past – she’s being taunted by a baddie (played by David Tennant) with his mind control abilities. But Jessica has demons of her own. You do not want to miss this one…

Here’s the lowdown on the actress of the year playing the coolest superheroine ever… 

She’s totally badass…Fans of Daredevil will love Krysten’s edgy portrayal as Jessica Jones – a superhero-turned-private detective in New York.

She is Jessica Jones…“She’s incredibly dynamic,” Krysten says. “She’s everything that a character, or a woman, can be. She’s tough, strong and very cool… By the end of filming [I’d] see something that’s kind of scary and my instinct [was to] beat them up!”

She was a teen model…“When I was 15, I was scouted at the mall by Elite Model Management,” Krysten says. “I started to go to New York on the bus in high school, which was about four hours door-to-door from my hometown, until I moved to New York and lived in models’ apartments all over.”

Comedy is her thing…Far from her dark character Jessica Jones, the kooky 33-year old actress is known for the eponymous character in sitcom Don’t Trust The B*tch In Apartment 23. “B*tch stands for Being In Control Of Yourself,” she revealed. Go, Krysten!

She nails 90s grunge…“I’m always in boots and a little dress,” Krysten says. “I don’t love wearing heels in my everyday life because I’m pretty tall.”

Music’s her first love…She also sings and plays guitar in indie rock band Ex Vivien,who released their debut album in 2012. Could this girl be any cooler?

Jessica Jones is now available on Netflix
