Jessica Henwick Iron Fist

Marvel's Iron Fist: Netflix Series Casts Thrones Actress as Female Lead

Marvel’s Iron Fist is bringing in its second Westeros import.

Jessica Henwick, who plays the Sand Snake known as Nymeria on Game of Thrones, has landed the female lead in Netflix’s upcoming comic-book drama.

Iron Fist follows Daniel Rand (played by Thrones‘ Finn Jones), who returns to New York City after being missing for years and fights the city’s criminals with his kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the power referenced in the series’ title.

Per EW.com, Henwick will co-star as martial arts expert Colleen Wing, who serves as a major ally to Danny as he readjusts to life in New York City.

In addition to Game of Thrones, Henwick’s TV credits include the British series Silk and Spirit Warriors. Hit the comments: Is she the right choice for the Iron Fist role?

    The Dorne storyline was horrible. Hopefully she is better in Iron Fist.

    Nice! Colleen Wing is badass. I like the parallel to Luke Cage.

    Luke Cage to Iron Fist is what Misty Knight (on Luke Cage) is to Colleen Wing (on Iron Fist).

    Sigh. Well, not only does this more than likely mean that Collen Wing will be Danny’s love interest in place of Misty Knight, but she and Misty can’t even be best friends the way they are as Daughters of the Dragon – Misty will have to have more of a mother role, if there’s any relationship there at all. Simone Missick is nearly 10 years older than Finn, and almost 15 years older than Jessica.
    It’s not like any of it even matters though, not with such a huge error as casting Finn Jones in the lead role in the first place, but wow, what a disrespectful heap this Iron Fist series keeps building higher and higher.
    Loras Tyrell and Nymeria, yall.

    Wish Misty was going to be in Iron Fist with Colleen and Danny. I understand she was put in Luke Cage because he doesn’t have another option for the female lead of that show, but Misty & Danny, and Misty & Colleen, are such important relationships for those characters.

    That is not a good pic of her. It’s not flattering.

    MCU should reacquire the rights for X-men, and have shows based on them.
