SPOILER ALERT: This story contains references to story elements and events in Season 3 of Game of Thrones
Michelle Fairley is coming back from the dead. No, this is not a surprise plot twist on HBO’s blockbuster Game of Thrones, where Fairley’s Catelyn Stark faced a spectacular demise. The Northern Irish actress is joining ABC’s drama Resurrection for a season-long story arc. She will play Margaret Langston, the formidable matriarch of the Langston clan, mother of Henry and Fred (Kurtwood Smith, Matt Craven). Dead for more than 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. The second season of Resurrection premieres Sept. 28. In addition to Game of Thrones, Fairley recurred as international industrialist Ava Hessington on the USA series Suits and most recently played the villainous Margot Al-Harazi on Fox’s 24 Live Another Day. She is repped by Paradigm and CAM.
