The star of the Marvel’s Netflix show Jessica Jones loves that her TV production has plenty of women on board.

For the new issue of Esquire Krysten shared that working with women in leadership positions helps when it comes to discussing the show's sex scenes. For the accompanying photos the star is pictured in a black bodysuit on a motorcycle.

“I like to be in a position where I can be vulnerable and speak about things in a raw way... I don’t want to have those kinds of conversations with a dude. With, like, a man who’s older than my dad,” she admitted.

For the former Breaking Bad star being the lead actress in a TV series is an intense experience. The 13-part drama which premiered last November (15) took 140 days to produce, and Krysten was on set for all shooting days except two.

“When I got it, my acting teacher said, ‘Baby, you have your work cut out for you. We have to make sure that you are surrounded by people that take good care of you and love you,’” she recalls.

Krysten has garnered critical acclaim for her portrayal of Jessica Jones' multi-layered, antihero, in a production that showcases some of Marvel’s more adult material. She stars alongside The Good Wife's Mike Colter (Luke Cage) Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth) of The Matrix fame and former Doctor Who, British actor David Tennant (Kilgrave).

The actress first came to prominence as Jane Margolis in AMC's hit show Breaking Bad and the sitcom Don’t Trust the B**ch In Apartment 23 which ran for two seasons on ABC. Her latest show was recently renewed for a second season.

Having now had the experience of leading a show, Krysten will no longer settle for a 'girlfriend' role.

“The bar is kind of high. It’s hard for me to look at a male buddy comedy where I’m the girl rolling her eyes. Like, this s**t,” she smiled.

The actress will appear at Tampa Bay Comic Con on 6 and 7 Aug (16) at the Tampa Convention Center alongside Norman Reedus, Daryl Dixon in The Walking Dead, Ian MCDiarmid, Palpatine in the Star Wars franchise, and Jack Gleeson, King Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones.
