Starz Casts Jacqueline Bisset And Stefan Kapicic In Counterpart
In addition to her Golden Globe-nominated turn on the previously-mentioned BBC series, Bisset is known for her leading role in the 1999 miniseries Joan of Arc, for which she received an Emmy Award nominated. As for Kapicic, viewers probably know him best as Colossus. Also joining the series alongside Bisset and Kapicic are Jacqueline Antaramian, Liv Lisa Fries, Christian Paul, Ingo Rademacher, and Marco Khan.
Starring J.K. Simmons as Howard Silk, the program will see him play a pencil pusher for a byzantine bureaucracy who discovers that the agency is protecting a gateway to another dimension. Meanwhile, Olivia Williams will play the daughter of Bisset’s character.
Deadline, the source of this story, adds the following information about the program:
Bisset will play Lydia Burton, mother to Emily (Olivia Williams) and matriarch of the family. She’s a retired member of the UK government whose presence casts a large shadow. Kapicic will portray Lieber, the right-hand man of Shaw (Nicholas Pinnock) who has little respect for Howard. Kamaranian is Ava Fancher: Married to the head of diplomacy Roland Fancher (Richard Schiff), she comes second to his loyalty to the office. Fries will play Greta, a free-spirited, bohemian young woman who catches the eye of one of the show’s leads with her unexpected kindness.
