‘Game of Thrones’ Star Michelle Fairley Joins ‘Suits’ Season 3
Talk about your quick turnaround! Just days after her most memorable episode to date as Catelyn Stark in ‘Game of Thrones,’ actress Michelle Fairley has already booked her next TV gig on USA’s legal drama, ‘Suits.’ A far cry from the world of Westeros, who might Fairley play and what fellow ‘Game of Thrones’ stars might she run into along the way?
The ‘Game of Thrones’ cast members have long had the difficult fate of their upcoming work telegraphing their imminent exits, but thankfully Michelle Fairley managed to keep things under wraps for a few days after Sunday’s bloodbath, “The Rains of Castamere.” Via Entertainment Weekly, we’ve learned that Fairley will next pop up far from Westeros in a recurring role for ‘Suits’ season 3!
First appearing in the July 16 premiere, Fairley will take the role of British entrepreneur and oil magnate Ava Hessington, whom Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) must defend when a lawsuit threatens her family business. Fellow ‘Game of Thrones’ star Conleth Hill will also appear in the third season as British firm head Edward Darby, but the two aren’t expected to share any scenes together.
Of course, that isn’t to say that Fairley won’t pop up in the ‘Game of Thrones’ season finale, or potentially beyond; even the stonehearted took pleasure in Khal Drogo’s (Jason Momoa) brief return last season.
Well, what say you? Are you excited to see Catelyn Stark in the modern world of ‘Suits’? Watch the latest season 3 trailer below and give us your thoughts in the comments!
