Emmy winner Judy Davis (Life with Judy Garland) has snagged a recurring role in Fox’s upcoming 12-episode event series 24: Live Another Day, TVLine has learned.
Davis will play a
fierce German arms dealer named Margo British national and the widow of a notorious terrorist. (Per a Fox rep, the role has evolved since it was conceived, hence the change in the character description.)
The actress is the first 24 outsider to come on board, joining franchise vets Kiefer Sutherland, Kim Raver, William Devane and Mary Lynn Rajskub.
24: LAD, which will be shot in London and pick up four years after the series finale, will essentially be 24 “compressed over 12 weeks,” Fox president Kevin Reilly previously explained. “It will go chronologically over the day, but it will skip hours.” It’s slated to debut in the spring.
