The eight-episode White Princess will tell the story of England’s War of the Roses from the vantage point of its female figures. Per the official announcement: “As Margaret’s influence over her son begins to wane and Lizzie’s star rises, Margaret begins to unravel as the sins of the past and present weigh heavily on her conscience and her relations with Henry are at risk of potentially imploding.”

Since leaving Game of Thrones, Fairley’s TV roles have included Suits, Resurrection, 24: Live Another Day and The Lizzie Borden Chronicles.
