It would seem as if a small portion of Westeros is invading 24. According to E! Online, Game of Thrones actress Michelle Fairley has joined the cast of the highly anticipated return of the 24 franchise in 24: Live Another Day.
She will be assuming the role of a character that was initially played by actress Judy Davis. Davis was forced to back out of the project earlier this month due to “personal matters.”
The former Mrs. Catelyn Stark, whose Game of Thrones character died in the most epic of fashions during the infamous Red Wedding episode, will be playing the role of Margot. Margot is a British National and the widow of a terrorist. I think it is safe to say that she will not be on Jack Bauer’s Christmas card list anytime soon.
Speaking of Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland will be returning to play the character that he made famous all those years ago.
The cast is definitely not short of well-known talent. William Devane will be returning to the series as President James Heller. Mary Lynn Rajskub is also returning to reprise her role as Chloe O’Brian. Also returning to the series is Kim Raver who is reprising her role as Audrey Raines.
Joining the cast for the newest incantation is Benjamin Bratt, Yvonne Strahovski, Michael Wincott, David Georgiou, and more.
24: Live Another Day is set to debut on Monday, May 5, 2014 on Fox.
