NEW DELHI: Nimrat Kaur, who was noticed for her quiet but powerful role in the internationally acclaimed film ‘The Lunchbox’ last year, has been chosen to act in American TV series ‘Homeland’.
“Pretty fun for someone who watched the pilot after the screen test! Season 4 HOMELAND it is,” tweeted Kaur.
‘Mad Men’ star Mark Moses and Art Malik will also appear in the series. Moses and Kaur have joined the series for several episodes.
Malik will appear in at least one episode, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Kaur will be seen as a high-level operative within Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, while Moses’ character Dennis is described as an academic teaching political science at Islamabad’s Quaid-I-Azam University.
Malik, best known for playing the villain in 1994 action-thriller ‘True Lies’, is playing an old friend of Saul’s retired Pakistani general Bunran ‘Bunny’ Latif.
‘Homeland’ is currently shooting its fourth season in South Africa, where Cape Town is doubling for Islamabad.
Produced by Fox 21, the series’ main cast includes Claire Danes and Damian Lewis, among others. ‘Homeland’ returns on 5 October.
