Basically, the series is hinting that Jax is a total badass. We definitely can’t wait for the series premiere of this sci-fi show on the CW.

After booking the starring role on the new CW summer series, Priscilla took to Instagram to talk about the love she has for her character, and also gave fans a glimpse inside the hardships of a working Hollywood actor. “As an actor, you’re being told ‘no’ constantly,” she wrote alongside a snap of the Pandora poster.  “Usually, it’s not even a ‘no,’ it’s just complete silence, leaving you mulling over what happened in that 5-minute audition for hours.” 

She continued, “Odd jobs, wondering where your next paycheck is going to come from/when that’ll ever be … the awkward family dinners when someone asks what you're working on next and you have no f--king idea if you’ll ever even work again.” Adding, “It’s all part of the process. It all makes the eventual ‘yes’ that much sweeter. I’m happy Pandora is my ‘yes.’ This project is so dear to me.” Well, we certainly can’t wait to meet Jax.
