Just days after actress Judy Davis dropped out of Fox’s upcoming miniseries, 24: Live Another Day, The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Game of Thrones alum Michelle Fairley is taking over the role. In the series, Fairley will play Margot, a British national and widow of a notorious terrorist. The part is being described as the main villain of the story, but no other details are available.
Of course Fairley is best known for her run as Catelyn Stark on Game of Thrones until her number was called at the end of last season. She is a newcomer to the 24 franchise, and will star in Live Another Day alongside Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Raver, William Devane, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Benjamin Bratt.
The miniseries will take place four years after the events of the original 24 and will follow in the series’ trademark real-time format.
24: Live Another Day will debut on May 5 at 8 p.m. on Fox with a two-hour premiere.
