Thrones Actress Scores Key “Iron Fist” Role

Jessica Henwick (“Game of Thrones,” “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) has scored the role of martial arts expert Colleen Wing in Marvel and Netflix’s “Iron Fist” series.

In the series, the character runs her own dojo in New York City and befriends Danny Rand (Finn Jones) after he returns home from his adventures in K’un L’un. In the comics she’s an invaluable ally of Iron Fist and a close friend of Misty Knight (Simone Missick).

Rand fights against the criminal element corrupting New York City with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist.

Jones and Henwick are the only actors confirmed for the series so far. Scott Buck serves as showrunner and a debut is expected sometime in 2017.
