Krysten Ritter's break into the entertainment industry happened by chance—she was spotted by a modeling agent at her local shopping mall when she was just 15.

Since then, Ritter has enjoyed a thriving career in not just modeling, but also film and television, as well. With supporting roles in films like She's Out of My League and Mona Lisa Smile, alongside Julia Roberts, Ritter now stars in her own Netflix series, Jessica Jones. The Marvel show, in which Ritter plays a superhero-turned-private investigator, was just renewed for a second season, set to premiere in 2018.
