It was accidental. Pearl was only known for theatre before she was cast as Bill, so they couldn't have based Jess on her - she became famous overnight, after Jess's debut, when the trailer announcing her casting as Bill was aired on TV.

I don't follow the logic here. The Venn Diagram of "people who make Doctor Who" and "people who are aware theater actors exist" is bound to have at least some overlap.

Also keep in mind that just because they released the trailer recently, doesn't mean they haven't had her slated as the new companion for long enough to have a character appear in the comics as a sort of one-off Early-Bird Cameo.

Scorpion, it's not the same character, so Early-Bird Cameo is definitely not it.
