Mythic Quest co-star Jessie Ennis creates an unforgettable presence on the AppleTV+ series. Her Jo is a motivated ladder climber who would literally step over bodies to get what she wants. She enjoys personal humiliations and seeks out weaknesses in her enemies to exploit on her own time. Her character debuted as a frequently hilarious minor character over Season 1, but her influence grew into Season 2 as she matured into a bigger presence. She often completely steals scenes with a delicate blend of physical comedy and biting insults.
Just the way Jo would have it.
