Marvel Studios has reportedly cast Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing for the upcoming Netflix series Iron Fist, according to Entertainment Weekly. Wing will reportedly be an ally to Daniel Rand as a "martial arts expert running her own dojo" in New York City.

In comic books, Colleen Wing debuted in 1974's Marvel Premiere #19 by Doug Moench and Larry Hama. Wing is primarily known as part of the Daughters of the Dragon duo with Misty Knight, and together they have had numerous adventutes with Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

Henwick is known for playing X-Wing pilot Jessika Pava in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as well as playing Nymeria Sand in recent episodes of HBO's Game of Thrones. The English actress has trained in several martial arts including wushu for past roles.

If Henwick's casting is accurate, she would be reuniting with another Game of Thrones actor, Iron Fist himself Finn Jones, who is also primarily known from that series.

Neither Marvel or Netflix have announced a premiere date for Iron Fist.
