3 Reasons Why I Love Jackie Sharp
She’s sassy, smart and don’t let her dainty look fool you. She doesn’t hesitate to kick ass when needed. Plus, she does it all in high heels. Can I get an amen? It can be a tough world being a lady in politics, but Jackie shows us that we don’t have to fit into one role. She can take charge when need be, but also know how to disarm anyone with her wit and charm. The women out there who identify with Jacqueline as a character or want to see more complex representations of women on screen will love watching every second she’s on screen.
In season two, Jackie makes her first major appearance at the end of episode three (Chapter 19) where she forces Frank Underwood’s hand by threatening to tell reporters that he killed Peter Russo unless he gave her a cabinet post.
The True Story Behind Jackie Sharp
But I want to focus on Jacqueline Jackie Sharp (Molly Parker), Democratic congresswoman from California, who succeeded Frank as majority whip. She also briefly ran for the Democratic nomination for President in season three. The character appeared sporadically in season two and was elevated to a starring role in season three, then dropped entirely after that. Her absence continues to irritate me.
How I relate to Jackie

I know that Jackie isn’t necessarily real, but I do relate to her in more ways than one. We are both women and we are both leaders within our fields, a lot like Jackie we try to embody an ideal version of ourselves that can sometimes be hard. There’s always someone that seems to want to bring you down when you’re doing well or on top so it’s important to always strive for your goals even if people around you don’t agree with them. -Molly Parker (House of Cards)
