Sophie Turner to play Colin Firth's daughter in The Staircase

Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is all set to return to the HBO family as she joins the cast of HBO show, The Staircase. The actress has been cast alongside a brilliant cast consisting of Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth and Toni Collette. The true-crime show is all set to stream on HBO Max and a few details about the show including the nature of Turner's character have now been revealed.

The Staircase is based on the acclaimed docuseries of the same name and also draws inspiration from books and reports relating to the case. The true-crime show will star Firth in the role of an American novelist Michael Peterson. The story revolves around the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen Peterson (Toni Collette), a corporate executive and mother/stepmother of their five children.

Sophie Turner has been cast in the role of Firth's adopted daughter, Margaret Ratliff. The show has also confirmed other cast members including Juliette Binoche, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Parker Posey.

The Staircase as per Collider will be a limited series that will consist of eight episodes and is being helmed by The Devil All the Time fame director Antonio Campos.

It is certainly exciting for fans of Turner who haven't seen the actress in a while, especially in series after her popular GOT stint. The fantasy HBO series launched Sophie's career and soon the actress went on to star in films such as X-Men: Apocalypse and X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

As for the actress' association with HBO Max, she has also been roped in for the platform's other project, the satirical animated series The Prince where Turner will be providing her voiceover for a character.
