ROSE LESLIE JOINS THE CAST OF THE ALL-NEW EDITION OF "THE GOOD WIFE" AS A SERIES REGULAR ON CBS ALL ACCESS

LOS ANGELES - Oct. 12, 2016 - Rose Leslie, star of "Game of Thrones," has joined the cast of the new edition of "The Good Wife" on CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network's subscription video on-demand and live streaming service. Leslie will play Maia, Diane's goddaughter who joins her firm just after passing the bar, and is a key part of Diane's plan for the future.

"We're thrilled to have Rose on board," said executive producers Robert and Michelle King. "We needed a young actress who could hold her own with Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo, and Rose is perfect. She's real, she's strong and she can play comedy. If we designed an actress from the ground up, we couldn't have done better."

As previously announced, the new series will pick up one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of "The Good Wife." In the series, an enormous financial scam has destroyed the reputation of a young lawyer, Maia (Rose Leslie), while simultaneously wiping out her mentor Diane Lockhart's savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee, they join Lucca Quinn at one of Chicago's pre-eminent law firms. Leslie joins Emmy Award winner Christine Baranski, who will reprise her role as Diane Lockhart, and fan favorites Cush Jumbo as Lucca Quinn and Sarah Steele as Marissa Gold.

Leslie is a Scottish actress perhaps best known for her roles as Gwen Dawson in the drama series "Downton Abbey," and as Ygritte in the fantasy series "Game of Thrones." Her additional television credits include the UK series "Luther" and "Utopia."

Leslie's film credits include "The Last Witch Hunter," "Morgan" and "Sticky Notes," among others.

The CBS All Access new edition of "The Good Wife" will debut in February 2017 with a special broadcast on the CBS Television Network, then move exclusively to CBS All Access.

Robert and Michelle King, creators and executive producers of "The Good Wife," return as the showrunners and executive producers of the new series. Phil Alden Robinson co-wrote and will executive produce the premiere episode along with the Kings. Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and Alison Cross also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions. The series will be distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
