Northern Irish actress Michelle Fairley is best known for her roles as Catelyn Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones and Dr. Ava Hessington in multiple episodes of USA Network series Suits.

Michelle Fairley was born on January 17, 1964, in Coleraine, United Kingdom. Her parents were locally renowned publicans named Theresa and Brian Fairley. She attended a Roman Catholic grammar school. As a teenager, she became a member of the Ulster Youth Theatre, which led her to get in love with acting. She moved to Belfast upon graduation where she honed her skills with the repertory company Fringe Benefits, alongside a fellow alumnus of the Ulster Youth Theatre, Conleth Hill.

She moved to Manchester in the mid-1980s, where she studied at Manchester Polytechnic. Her tutor there recommended her for a part in a play by Irish playwright Christina Reid called "Joyriders." Fairley won, moving to London for a 1986 off-West End run at the Tricycle Theatre. Fairley garnered positive notices for her star-turn in Ibsen's "The Lady from the Sea" for the Glasgow Citizens Theatre in 1988. She supplemented her theatrical fare with periodic screen work, as she started with a bit part in her first feature film, the indie thriller "Hidden City" (1987), then with periodic television series guest-shots, most-notably on long-running BBC series "Lovejoy" (1986-94) and ITV's "Inspector Morse" (1987-2000). She also participated in one-off projects such as the crime drama "Comics" (Channel 4, 1996) and "The Precious Blood" (BBC, 1996).

She appeared in a range of British television shows, including The Bill, Holby City and Heartbeat. Some of her earlier roles were as Cathy Michaels on ITV1's Inspector Morse in the episode titled "The Way through the Woods" and as Nancy Phelan in Lovejoy in the episode 9 of Season 3 titled "Smoke Your Nose".

She took over the role of Mrs. Granger from Heather Bleasdale in the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows films. It was announced on 19 March 2010 that she would play the role of Catelyn Stark in the HBO series Game of Thrones replacing Jennifer Ehle who played the character in the original pilot episode. E! News confirmed on 4 June 2013 that she had joined the cast of the USA Network series Suits for its third season. Fairley will play the recurring role of Ava Hessington.

She manages to look hot even in this age. Her pictures reveal her beauty in a different manner and she looks attractive. Her body shape is not bad and she has maintained it well. A citizen of the United Kingdom and from white ethnicity, she has devoted her career in acting. She has a height of five feet and five inches and has maintained her weight accordingly. She has achieved a high net worth throughout her acting career and we hope she continues it in the future.

There hasn’t been any revelation about her personal life. None of her relationship information is available. She maintains a home in London when she takes a break from acting for a few days. Reports say she is unmarried and living a single life.

The actress has a high potential for future roles and she certainly has a bright future in her acting career. Wish her all the good luck and the strength to continue her acting career.
