Carrie-Anne Moss, best known for her work in Christopher Nolan‘s Memento and The Matrix trilogy (though I’ll always know her as the voice of Aria T’Loak in the Mass Effect games), has signed onto Marvel and Netflix’s AKA Jessica Jones in an unnamed role.
Deadline describes the role as:
She will play a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica – if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.
It’s worth noting this role is being revealed in much the same way that Rosario Dawson‘s role in Daredevil was, with a sort of vague description and not much else. That role was eventually revealed to be Night Nurse. All of this secrecy could very well mean that Moss’ role is intended to be a surprise for fans…or not.
She’ll join Krysten Ritter, Mike Colter, David Tennant, and Rachael Taylor in the series debuting this year.
Update: According to Badass Digest, the character is named “Harper”, though they provide no other details.
