Which Game of Thrones Actress is Joining 24: Live Another Day?


24: Live Another Day just got a little more interesting. The miniseries is filming as we speak, but it seems the show got one little last minute casting switch. Game of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley is stepping into replace Judy Davis, who pulled out of the project for personal reasons last week. According to Deadline, “Fairley will play Margot, a British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist.”

I will assume a central question will be whether Margot can herself be trusted, and I do love that they’re taking the traditionally American show to the UK for its return. Will audiences care as much about Jack if it’s England he’s trying to save instead of America? We shall see.

Fairley’s most high profile role as of late has been Catelyn Stark on HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones. She’s done a fantastic job there, and I can only assume will be great in this role as well. More information on Live Another Day as it comes in, but it definitely seems interesting so far.
