From Westeros to the Big Apple, Michelle Fairley is making the transition to a new role in a new setting.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the "Game of Thrones" actress has signed on for a recurring role in the USA Network's legal drama series "Suits" for the upcoming third season.
Series star Gabriel Macht recently leaked Fairley's appearance on the series, dropping hints as to what her and a couple of other UK actors roles will be, including a fellow "Game of Thrones" alum. "As [fans] probably know, the merger has happened and – as we call it – there’s a British Invasion," Macht said. "You’re either for that invasion or you’re against, and as much as I'm for bringing some terrific British actors into the game, [my character] is against this invasion! I love it, because we’ve got some terrific actors – Conleth Hill and Michelle Fairley and Max Beesley are on board, and we’re having a great time on set with all of them."
Fairley and Hill are set to play prospective clients from across the pond that are brought in thanks to the merger which took place in the show's second season. Fairley will portray British entrepreneur Ava Hessington, who seeks out the elite law firm's help when it is struck with a major lawsuit against her family's international oil company.
Keep an eye out for matriarch of Winterfell when the third season of "Suits" premieres on July 16th.
