Damages‘ Patty Hewes has another rival.
McTeer will play Kate Franklin, a former colleague of Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) who aims to take on her old boss by working for rival Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne).
McTeer picked up an Emmy nomination for supporting actress in a mini in 2009 for HBO’s Into the Storm and an Academy Award nom for actress in a leading role for 2000’s Tumbleweeds. She appears in Close’s upcoming feature Albert Nobbs, due in December.
