 Charlotte July Brinke (born June 17, 1983) is an American actress, filmmaker, and model. Brinke is best known for playing the eponymous hero Jessica Jones on the Netflix superhero series Jessica Jones, and for playing Quorra in Tron: Legacy, sequel to the 1980s cult favorite Tron.

Early Life  Brinke was born and raised in Cape May, New Jersey, the middle child of a county detective and a local business owner. In the mid-1970s, her mother received second place in the annual Miss Cape May County youth beauty pageant. Brinke's sisters have participated in the annual event: her older sister Lois placed third in 1994, and her younger sister Christina won first place in 2009. Brinke herself never took part in the pageant, explaining that she "never really saw herself as a beauty pageant kind of girl."

Career  As a young teen, Brinke was scouted by a modeling agent while shopping for homecoming dresses at the King of Prussia mall in Pennsylvania. She claims that her success as a teen model was completely unexpected and had nothing to do with her looks, crediting her appeal entirely to her "towering height" (she is 5'11). Early in her career she modeled for several popular catalog brands, including dELIA*s, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, and Aeropostale, eventually moving on to print ads, television commercials, magazine editorials, and ultimately runway work in Milan, New York, Paris, and Tokyo. During this time Brinke worked under the name Charlotte Brink, after being told by a modeling agent that it was a "cleaner, more marketable" pseudonym.

 In 2000, Brinke made her television debut starring in the short-lived drama Young Americans. In 2002, she made her film debut as the lead in the empowering surfing film Blue Crush. She followed up on these projects by taking on supporting roles in a handful of well-received films and television series, including the film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' The Rules of Attraction. As an actress, she reverted back to Charlie Brinke, and has been credited as such ever since.

 In 2008, after struggling through a highly-publicized divorce with actor and Sin City co-star Alec Moran, Brinke decided to take a break from acting. She has since stated that the brief hiatus was "a much-needed, self-imposed mental holiday... [it was] a crucial step, something I needed to do so I could focus on taking care of myself." In 2010, Brinke made her return to film appearing alongside Jeff Bridges and Garrett Hedlund in Tron: Legacy, the highly anticipated sequel to Tron.

 In February 2011, ABC announced that Brinke would star in the sitcom Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23, playing the title role of Chloe, a New York City party girl who rips off her new roommate after convincing her to move in. Despite garnering a dedicated fan following, the series was cancelled after only two seasons.

 On December 5, 2014, Brinke was cast in the thirteen-episode Marvel Television series Jessica Jones, which is set to premiere on Netflix in 2015. She will star as Jessica Jones, a former superhero turned private detective in New York City. On her casting, executive producer and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg stated that Brinke "brings both the hard edge and vulnerability the role demands."

Personal Life  While working together on Sin City in 2004, Brinke was introduced to Alec Moran at a dinner held for members of the cast and crew. Brinke quickly became involved with the Spider-Man star and their highly publicized whirlwind romance was a favorite among tabloid readers and paparazzi alike. Coverage of their relationship was at a high throughout the Sin City press tour, in part due to the couple's announcement at the red carpet premiere that they had wed shortly after finishing the film. Brinke and Moran were known for discussing their relationship openly with press and fans alike. In 2006, Brinke stated in an interview that her interest in acting had taken a backseat to other "more exciting" prospects, primarily her marriage and the prospect of starting a family with Moran in the near future.

 In 2008, Brinke was hospitalized after a collapse at her shared home in Los Angeles with Moran. In a statement released by her publicist, Brinke's health issues were attributed to stress and exhaustion, assuring that the actress was in good health despite the incident. Brinke and Moran divorced shortly after her hospitalization, citing "irreconciliable differences." In 2009, Brinke checked herself into a rehab facility in Northern California, seeking treatment for exhaustion and rumored substance abuse.
