Nicole Kidman Joins Top of the Lake Season 2 Opposite Elisabeth Moss

Nicole Kidman is diving back into the TV waters via Top of the Lake.

The Oscar winner — who just wrapped production on the HBO limited series Big Little Lies opposite Reese Witherspoon — will star in the SundanceTV thriller’s upcoming second season in an unspecified role, Deadline reports. Titled Top Of The Lake: China Girl, the story — which picks up four years after the events of Season 1 — finds Elisabeth Moss’ Detective Robin Griffin investigating the case of an unidentified body which washes up on Sydney’s Bondi Beach.

The gig reunites Kidman with her Portrait Of A Lady director Jane Campion, who co-created Top of the Lake with Gerald Lee. It also affords the native Australian the opportunity to spend a few months living and working in her home country.

“I am very excited to be coming home to work with darling friend Jane Campion, whose work I ­respect and admire,” Kidman told The Daily Telegraph. “I’m also so happy to be joining the ­incredible Elisabeth Moss.”

The Top of the Lake Season 2 cast also includes Game Of Thrones‘ Gwendoline Christie.

    Season 1 was great. Elisabeth Moss was great. Now season 2 has Gwendoline Christie AND Nicole freakin’ Kidman!?!?!? I am SO in! Can’t wait.

    The “native Australian” is a bit of a stretch, isn’t it? Considering she was born in Honolulu… Sure, she considers herself Australian, as she should, but “native” is a bit too much…

    • LT says:

      REALLY? Why do you care? I mean, our President was born in Hawaii and according to the stupid people in this country he’s a native of Kenya.

    • Alichat says:

      She was born to Australian parents, and grew up in Australia from the time she was 3-4 years old. I’d say that’s native.

    I am wondering how they make the switch to australia from new zealand.
