Michelle Fairley is heading from “Game of Thrones” to “24: Live Another Day,” Access Hollywood has confirmed.
The actress will play Margot in the return of the Fox series.
Margot is a British national. The character has been described by the network as the widow of a notorious terrorist.
Filming on “24: Live Another Day,” starring Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer, kicked off in London last month.
Michelle has not yet begun filming her scenes.
Judy Davis was previously attached to the role.
Asked by Access in January about how the show would return, Kiefer said a meet up of international leaders brings Jack back.
“We pick up four years after the end of Season 8, and at the end of Season 8 the President… had decided to come clean about the things that she had done which were illegal. Jack Bauer was implicated in that. She gave him a small window [in which] to escape. He did. He made it to Eastern Europe where he has been hiding,” Kiefer said. “The President of the United States is going to meet with the Prime Minister of Great Britain in London and something is going to happen there and Jack Bauer surfaces there.”
“24: Live Another Day” will premiere on Monday, May 5 on Fox.
