Michelle Fairley on Suits: First Look!

by at . Comments

Michelle Fairley has recovered quite well from her throat being slit on Game of Thrones Season 3.

As previously announced, the actress behind Catelyn Stark will take on a very different appearance this summer when she guest stars on Suits, joining the third season of the USA Network hit as Ava Hessington, a British oil company executive facing bribery charges.

And TV Guide has your first look at Fairley in the role:

"We're huge Game of Thrones fans — we talk about it, we watch it, we love it," executive producer Aaron Korsh told TV Guide. "Michelle has a steel and a vulnerability in her that lets us question if she is behind what she is being accused of or not."

And just in case Mike (Patrick J. Adams) and Harvey (Gabriel Macht) can't provide enough legal aid, the enigmatic Ava has another ally in her corner: the firm's new British partner, who has a past with her character — and who just so happens to be played by Fairley's Thrones costar Conleth Hill (Lord Varys). Game on!

Look for Fairley's character to have a past with the firm's new partner… played, of course, by another GoT star: Conleth Hill.

Suits Season 3 kicks off on July 16.
