Killing Eve‘s Fiona Shaw has lined up another intriguing TV role – in British missing-persons drama Baptiste.
According to Deadline, Shaw will play a key role in the show’s second and potentially final season as Emma Chambers, a British Ambassador whose family goes missing during a ski holiday in the Hungarian mountains.
The six-episode season will follow Tchéky Karyo‘s retired detective Julien Baptiste as he heads into Budapest’s seedy underworld to track down Chambers’ family. Season one of Baptiste, which is a spin-off from the hit British psychological drama The Missing, has already aired in the U.K. and is due to begin on PBS in the U.S. on April 12.
“I’m so lucky to be working with all the best of the new generation,” Shaw said of her casting in Baptiste, which is created by young British brothers Harry and Jack Williams.
“Julien Baptiste is back for one more case. I expect it will be the last time we see him and we will be saying goodbye to the character,” Williams added.
Shaw, who won a BAFTA TV Award last year for her performance as super-shrewd MI6 leader Carolyn Martens in Killing Eve, will return alongside Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in the show’s third season due later this year. Ahead of the new season, check out seven new cast members joining the show here.
Shaw, who received Emmy nominations for her performances in Killing Eve and Fleabag, also has a supporting role opposite Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan in the upcoming British romantic film Ammonite. Long may the “Fionaissance” continue!
