It comes after doting mother Sophie landed a spot in the cast for HBO’s The Staircase.

The actress joins a star-studded line-up that already includes the likes of Colin Firth, Toni Collette, Parker Posey, Juliette Binoche and Rosemarie DeWitt.

The Staircase is centered on novelist Michael Peterson [Colin Firth] who was accused of murdering his second wife, Kathleen [Toni Collette] in 2001.

In the show, Sophie will play the role of Margaret Ratliff, who is one of the adopted daughters of Michael.

The eight-episode series has been in development for two years and is based on the 2004 docuseries of the same name, which was updated with new episodes in 2018, reports Variety.

The show initially premiered on Canal+ before it moved to Netflix, where it received widespread attention and garnered critical praise. It is also inspired by various books and reports about the case of Michael.

The now-77-year-old author claimed that his spouse had died after falling down the stairs at their home in North Carolina, although police suspected that he had killed her and covered up his evidence.

He was eventually convicted of murder, although his sentence was later reduced to voluntary manslaughter.
