'Game of Thrones' Star Joins '24: Live Another Day'
Tuesday, February 11, 2014
It's going to be Jack Bauer vs. Catelyn Stark in the new reboot of FOX's 24. The show has cast Game of Thrones' Michelle Fairley in a key recurring role for the new event series 24: Live Another Day.
Fairley will play Margot, a British widow of a terrorist. The role was originally to be played by Emmy winner Judy Davis, but the actress dropped out at the last minute due to personal reasons.
The new role is the second big TV gig for Fairley since leaving HBO's Game of Thrones. She played an embattled CEO on USA's Suits.
Fairley joins a long list of new actors joining Kiefer Sutherland for 24: Live Another Day, including Stephen Fry, Yvonne Strahovski, Benjamin Bratt, Tate Donovan as Arrow's Colin Salmon. Hopefully her role on 24: Live Another Day won't end as badly as her time on Game of Thrones did.
24: Live Another Day premieres Monday, May 5 at 8pm on FOX.
