Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that 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."
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, Trish helps her embark on the most dangerous case of Jessica's career.
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 super hero identity of Hellcat in 1976.
Taylor will star opposite Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), David Tennant (Kilgrave), and Mike Colter (Luke Cage) in the Netflix original series. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (“Dexter”).
“The character is a star and a powerhouse, and required an actress who is both,” said 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.”
Taylor can next be seen in theaters with “The Loft.” “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” marks her first Netflix series, while past TV credits include “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Crisis.”

Inhumans: Attilan Rising, previously teased by Marvel late last year, will join the current Inumans title and the upcoming Uncanny Inhumans. Written by Charles Soule with art by John Timms, Marvel bills the series as "a tale of romance and intrigue" running through the center of Secret Wars.
“One of the ideas behind Inhumans: Attilan Rising from the start was to put Medusa, Black Bolt, Reader, Iso, and other characters from Inhuman into a new context,” says Soule. “That’s part of the fun of an event like Secret Wars. Things don’t have to be the way we’re used to seeing them."
Name Meaning: Fierce or Untamable King
Habitat: Jurassic World
Length: Currently 40 ft
Origin: Hammond Creation Lab
We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered.
At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above the eye orbit through genetic material hybridized from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops and Giganotosaurus. Fearsome indeed.
Indominus’ roar is estimated to reach 140-160db—the same as a 747 taking off and landing. And it can reach speeds of 30 MPH while confined to its enclosure. Come experience Indominus Rex for yourself beginning this summer. If you dare.
Jurassic World releases on June 12th in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
As one of the few people allowed to visit the set during filming….and one of the fewer who’s seen most of the footage…I can assure the millions of Star Wars fans who have spent the last decade hoping for a new movie this one will be worth the wait. And it’s only the beginning of a new era of exceptional Star Wars storytelling; next year we’ll release our first standalone movie based on these characters, followed by Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017, and we’ll finish this trilogy with Episode IX in 2019.
Directed by Alan Taylor, and staring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and Jason Clarke, Terminator: Genisys releases on July 1st.
