The Game of Thrones vet and recent 24 baddie has landed a season-long arc on ABC’s Resurrection, TVLine has confirmed, playing Margaret Langston, the “formidable” matriarch of the Langston family and thus mother of Henry and Fred (played by Kurtwood Smith and Matt Craven).

Dead for over three decades, Margaret “returns” bearing knowledge of her brood’s dark past — secrets she is determined to keep hidden.

Our sister site Deadline was among the first to break the casting news.
