'Game of Thrones' star joins Fox's '24' in major role


Another exciting casting for Fox’s 24 reboot Live Another Day: Michelle Fairley is joining the show in a major villainous role.

She’ll play Margo, the British widow of a notorious terrorist. This is a role that was previously filled by actress Judy Davis, who had to exit the production due for personal reasons.

Fairley is best known for HBO’s fantasy hit Game of Thrones where she played Catelyn Stark for three seasons. Last year, she had a recurring role on USA’s Suits.

Live Another Day brings Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) to London in a new action-packed adventure. Co-stars include Mary Lynn Rajskub, Kim Raver, Michael Wincott, Yvonne Strahovski, Stephen Fry, Benjamin Bratt, Giles Matthey, Erik Ritter, Tate Donovan, and William Devane. The clock starts ticking again on May 5.
