Playing the future Queen of England really does pay off.

British actress Camilla Luddington, who portrayed Kate Middleton in the Lifetime telefilm William & Kate, has landed a meaty role on Showtime’s racy series Californication, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Luddington will take on the role of a fired nanny who is then hired by Charlie (Evan Handler) and Marcy (Pamela Adlon) in an eight-episode arc.

Californication stars David Duchovny as has-been novelist Hank Moody, who is struggling to revitalize his professional career while maintaining a good relationship with his ex-wife and teenage daughter.

Showtime renewed the veteran dark comedy for a fifth season in January. Musician RZA will also be appearing as a rap mogul Hank considers writing a movie for.

Luddington is repped by Progressive Artists Agency and Main Title Entertainment.
