With Netflix announcing earlier this month that it has renewed Jessica Jones, star Rachael Taylor has been talking to Comic Book Resources about what she’d like to see for her character Trish Walker in the second season of the Marvel show… yep, you’ve guessed it – Hellcat!
“I try not to get ahead of myself and think about it too much, because it’s easy to get carried away and think about things,” states Taylor. “I already feel like I have more than my share, in a way, being on Netflix, being in the Marvel Universe, being in this show that has resonated so deeply with people. But of course, I mean, it would be amazing. … To take it that one step further is something that, yeah, I’d love to get my teeth stuck into whatever happens to the character.”
“I think all of the characters have an alias in this series. They have an ‘also known as,’ or a shadow personality,” she contuinues. “I think for Trish, part of her shadow personality is that there’s a certain covetous part of her. I think she covets some of the things that Jessica has. I think there is an unholy ambition that sits just under the surface. She declares it in the show. Jessica says, ‘What else could you possibly want Trish?’ And Trish says, ‘Well, to save the world, of course.’ Which is kind of a very unusual thing for a character to say. I do think there’s a part of her that would love to make it right in the way that she thinks Jessica could make it right if she was just to overcome her dysfunctions and put down the bottle.”
