Liv Tyler Joins ITV, Hulu Series ‘Harlots’

Liv Tyler (“The Leftovers”) will star in the upcoming season of “Harlots,” the ITV and Hulu period drama.

The show is set in the sex trade in 18th century Georgian London. Samantha Morton’s character, Margaret, is a family matriarch and brothel owner, and as season two opens her daughter Charlotee (Jessica Brown Findlay) has gone to the home and establishment of arch rival, Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville).

Tyler joins the cast as enigmatic aristocrat, Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam. Known as Lady Fitz, she has a shadowy past and finds herself blackmailed by Lydia.

For Tyler, who now lives in London, it is the second recent role in a U.K.-originated drama. She also stars alongside Kit Harrington in the BBC’s Guy Fawkes drama “Gunpowder.”

Monumental Television makes “Harlots,” which ITV Studios sells internationally. “There is no equal to Liv Tyler’s brilliance and regal elegance, and we can’t think of a better actress for the complex and passionate Lady Fitz,” said Monumental Television co-directors Alison Owen and Debra Hayward in a statement.

“We’re thrilled for her to join our gang of ‘Harlots,’ and can’t wait to see the fireworks as her presence is felt by Lydia and Margaret.”
