‘Game of Thrones’ Star Michelle Fairley to Replace Judy Davis on ’24: Live Another Day’

Now Fairley will play recurring British national Margot

Fox’s event series “24: Live Another Day” has replaced Judy Davis with Michelle Fairley (“Game of Thrones”) in the recurring guest star role of Margot, a British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist.

The news broke last week that Davis, who lives in Australia, had to withdraw from the project due to personal family matters which will not allow her to travel at the time needed.

The 12-episode miniseries reunites the Emmy Award-winning team of executive producer Howard Gordon; star and executive producer Kiefer Sutherland; co-creator Robert Cochran; executive producers, Evan Katz, Manny Coto, David Fury, Brian Grazer and director Jon Cassar.
