Jessica Jones' BFF Is a Real Hellcat: Rachael Taylor Cast as 'Patsy' Walker

Jessica Jones Rachael Taylor

Rachael Taylor has joined the cast of Marvel’s AKA Jessica Jones, which premieres this year on Netflix.

As first reported by Marvel.com, the onetime 666 Park Avenue resident and Angel of Charlie will play Patricia “Trish” Walker, a syndicated radio host, former model and onetime child TV star (known to her adoring fans as “Patsy”).

In the 13-episode Marvel series, Jessica Jones (played by Apartment 23‘s Krysten Ritter) — following a tragic ending to her short-lived superhero stint — is rebuilding her personal life and career as a New York City detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities. Trish, as her closest friend, helps Jessica embark on the most dangerous case of her career.

In Marvel comics lore, Trish/Patsy ultimately suited up as the hero Hellcat.

Taylor joins a cast that also includes Doctor Who’s David Tennant (as the villain Kilgrave) and The Good Wife‘s Mike Colter (playing Luke Cage).
