"Game of Thrones'" Michelle Fairley Joins USA's "Suits"

"Game of Thrones'" Michelle Fairley Joins USA's "Suits"

OK, we shouldn't even have to say this anymore, but we're going to: This is a Game of Thrones SPOILER ALERT. If you have not seen this past Sunday's episode, shield your eyes now. The rest of you, however, read on as you please:

According to EW, Game of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley has just signed on to appear in season three of USA's legal drama Suits. She will reportedly portray a successful British oil company CEO named Ava Hessington, who hires the show's lead, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) to represent her when her business is faced with a lawsuit.

This news comes only two days after Fairley's character in Game of Thrones, Catelyn Stark, was killed off in one of the bloodiest, and most traumatic hours of television to ever air. Good news to come out of that though: Apparently, Fairley's performance is being praised so highly that she's receiving Emmy buzz for the episode.
