Leah Gibson, best known for her role as Nettie in the Twilight saga, has joined the cast of Marvel’s Jessica Jones season 2 in a series regular role.
Gibson, who began her career on Psych and had a minor role in Watchmen, will play Ingrid, who is described as “street-wise but who also has an education as a nurse.”
As Variety notes, fans immediately speculated that Ingrid would turn out to be the longtime Daredevil supporting character Typhoid Mary when her character description first leaked out back in April.
It remains to be seen how she’ll be affected by the events going into Jessica Jones‘ second season. We’re just excited to see her hard-drinking, hard-hitting, self-sabotaging adventures continue.
You can see her next when Defenders premieres on Netflix on August 18.
