The Killing Exclusive: Homeland Actress Cast as Holder's [SPOILER ALERT]

Marin Ireland The KillingHomeland terrorist Marin Ireland is about to make another Killing.

The actress — who played one half of a lethal, anti-American husband-wife team during the Showtime drama’s inaugural season — is joining The Killing in the potentially recurring role of Liz, sister to Joel Kinnaman’s Detective Holder.

The character is described as a tough, blue collar girl who won’t take you-know-what from her brother — or anybody for that matter.

Ireland’s TV credits also include a recurring gig on CBS’ A Gifted Man and a supporting role in HBO’s Mildred Pierce.

Season 2 of the AMC thrillerwhich will continue chronicling the Larsen case as well as delve into a new mystery, kicks off Sunday, April 1, at 8/7c with a two-hour opener. “It picks up the moment you left it behind, and from there the stakes just jump 500 percent,” leading lady Mireille Enos recently told TVLine. “The mystery just keeps unfolding and everything keeps getting more and more personal for all of these characters.”

    I can’t wait for the return of the Killing!

  2. DL says:

    Pretty solid casting. I can definitely see her as Holder’s sister.
    Eager to see if Season 2 of The Killing can redeem some of the ridiculous plot holes and missteps that turned me off at the end of Season 1.

    Maybe she killed Rosie and this why it is taking so long to solve this murder case. She just got cast. LOL

  4. Shy says:

    And where is the trailer? Game of Thrones opens on the same day and we already saw 2 trailers for it.

  5. Rjrtist says:

    If they take too long solving the murder they will lose viewers.

      They already have. I’d be shocked if half of its audience isn’t gone by the time the premiere rolls around. They’ve already lost me.

        Typical, tooo impatient to let the suspense carry you to another season. The way we watch TV is to have everything solved, or wrapped up in the 60 or 90 minutes we watch. Developing the characters and building the suspense is well worth the wait! April 1st, the return of baseball AND the Killing, doesn’t get much better than that!

    Lethal? Did she even kill anyone? Or hurt anyone?
