The show in question is USA’s Suits, which already features Gina Torres as a better-than-everyone SuperLawyer and has just added Michelle Fairley to its third season. Too much awesome. Can’t handle it.
According to Entertainment Weekly
Catelyn Stark Fairley will play Ava Hessington, a British oil tycoon who goes to Harvey (Gabriel Macht) for help after her family business is threatened by a lawsuit. There’s no word on how many episodes she’ll appear in, but her role is apparently recurring, and she’ll first show up in the July 16th season premiere.
Here she is in a pic Instagrammed by her new co-star Patrick J. Adams. Wow. After Game of Thrones, I’m not used to seeing her smiling.
If the show isn’t Westerosi enough for you yet, season two recurring guest star Conleth Hill, whom Game of Thrones fans better know as Varys, will be popping up in season three as well. Is it too much to ask that Hill and Fairley have a scene together? Actually, no, a whole scene might be distracting. I just want them to pass each other in the hall and do a double-take or give each other the stinkeye. This is a show that featured a scene of Adams’ and Hill’s characters fanboying over Downton Abbey, not to mention their explicit Game of Thrones reference courtesy of Louis “I’m a Lannister” Litt (best character, accept no substitutes). Don’t tell me they wouldn’t do it.
(Quick note: Please refrain from talking about the last episode of Game of Thrones in the comments. Not everyone has had the chance to see it yet.)
