Marvel has announced that Jessica Henwick will be joining the cast of Iron Fist. She can recently be seen in the fifth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones as one of the Sand Snakes. Soon viewers will get to see her as Colleen Wing, a martial arts expert who runs her own dojo and is an ally to Danny Rand after his return to New York.

Marvel also teased an image of Colleen Wing’s school flyer.

The character first appeared in Marvel Premiere #19 in 1974 and was one of Danny’s first friends after he left K’un-L’un.

So far it looks like the crew behind Iron Fist is a big fan of Game of Thrones since Danny Rand is played by Finn Jones, who can also be seen in the HBO series.

“I’m very excited to have Jessica as our Colleen Wing,” said Executive Producer and Showrunner, Scott Buck. “She’s shown us that she can bring both a sense of quiet strength as well as an engaging vulnerability to the character.”

“Jessica brings both a youthful vitality mixed with a strong sense of authority crucial to the character,” said Executive Producer/Head of Marvel Television, Jeph Loeb. “And as anyone who’s seen her in ‘Game of Thrones’ can attest, she can throw down with the best of them, making her the perfect Colleen Wing.”

Scott Buck will serve as the showrunner.

In “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” Daniel Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years. He 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.
