Krysten Ritter misses talk show appearance

Actress Krysten Ritter was forced to cancel her interview with talk show host Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (25Feb16) due to the severe weather.

The Jessica Jones star was scheduled to appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday but her flight into New York City, where the show is filmed, was rerouted to Virginia, a state which has suffered from severe storms this week (beg22Feb16).


The change to her travel plans meant she could not keep her interview and she told fans on Twitter.com, "Well - Sadly I won't be on Colbert tonight - due to weather/air traffic I was rerouted to Virginia - so bummed to miss it."


The broadcast marked Colbert's 100th episode of The Late Show, which began airing in September (15) after David Letterman retired.


The actress, who is new to the Marvel family with the Jessica Jones TV series, was previously in Portland, Oregon at the Wizard World Comic Con event over the weekend (20-21Feb16), and she told Comicbook.com how her new role has changed her life.


"It's so rad! I'm so fortunate to get to play this amazing character and have this giant built-in fanbase that comes with Marvel," she said. "I've never done anything in this genre before so it's been completely life changing. I've never been to comic con before! This is a whole new ball game for me."


She also teased that she may eventually make an appearance in the Marvel movies alongside characters including Iron Man and Captain America, adding, "Obviously, it'd be really exciting to be a part of those giant, huge movies with those great characters who are already established, so it'd be awesome... It'd be awesome if I got to pop up somewhere else. There's always the chance that could happen."


Ritter is also heading to the famed San Diego Comic-Con in California in the summer (16).
