I became a model when I was very young. That’s how I made it to the movie industry. So I’m not a model anymore.The background characters she had first played (Veronica Mars, Mona Lisa Smile, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Jonny Zero, and so on) all had something in common: most of them were unusual and odd characters, with many issues.
Jessica Jones is a complicated and damaged person. She’s not the supergirl kind that you often see on TV. Actually, I consider this series to be a psychological thriller first of all, not a movie about dressed up superheroes. By the way, I can kick ass without a dumb superhero suit.According to Zoomboola.com, in 2016, she received a Webby Award for the best actress of the year.
