‘Game of Thrones’ Star Michelle Fairley Joins ABC’s ‘Resurrection’

Michelle Fairley has had a busy year. After completing her role as Catelyn Stark on Game of Thrones last year, she went on to star in an extended arc on USA Network’s Suits, before heading over to FOX to star as a terrorist in 24: Live Another Day. However, now Fairley is taking her talents to ABC for a recurring role on the network’s biggest new drama hit of 2014 so far, Resurrection.

In the upcoming second season, Fairley will play the recurring role of Margaret Langston, “the formidable matriarch of the Langston clan … mother of Henry and Fred (Kurtwood Smith, Matt Craven), and dead for over three decades, she will reappear in Arcadia as one of the returned. Margaret brings with her knowledge of the Langston family’s dark past, a past she is determined to keep hidden. Her return will have consequences for the entire family.”

Sounds like the kind of role she can really dig into, which is good for an actress often tasked with playing stone-hearted characters. Should be interesting.

Resurrection returns for its second season on Sunday, Sept. 28.
