'Game Of Thrones' Michelle Fairley Replaces Judy Davis In '24: Live Another Day'


"24: Live Another Day" has found its replacement for Judy Davis, who left a prominent recurring role for personal reasons last week. Former "Game of Thrones" star Michelle Fairley has signed on to portray Margot, widow of a notorious terrorist, and someone who's sure to give Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) a whole new reason to dread yet another day.

The new series reportedly picks up the action four years after the series finale of "24" left Jack Bauer a fugitive. Production has been under way for nearly a month, with Fairley's part scheduled to begin filming in a week, so we don't expect to see her right away on the show. When she does show up, though, she's sure to demand our attention ... as any true Lady does!

"24: Live Another Day" is scheduled to premiere May 5 on Fox.
