A former FBI forensic investigator, Jo Danville’s unorthodox methodology emphasises psychology first.
Played by Sela Ward
Season 7 - present
As an FBI forensic investigator, Jo Danville's personal and professional integrity resulted in the acquittal of a rapist, whose victim was a Senator’s daughter. Due to the subsequent political fallout, her continued work in D.C. became impossible, sending her to join Detective Mac Taylor’s forensics team in New York City.
Jo’s unorthodox methodology emphasises psychology first, forensics second. Jo is always the one to question whether science is infallible, seeking a second opinion or a different angle. She has immense empathy for the victim but also secretly wishes she could be proving everyone’s innocence.
