Krysten Ritter never thought she would play a superhero; Jessica Jones discussion post!



  • Krysten says that she never saw herself playing a superhero because she doesn't have the big boobs and the big hair, which is how most female superheroes are represented in comic books.

  • She thought that she wasn't going to get the part, but her manager told her that she was perfect for it because Jessica Jones is a superhero that it's really bad at it.

  • She didn't know much about the character when she decided to read for it, but after reading the script under Marvel's strict security measures, she decided that she wanted to play her.
