Update 2: Short interview of Liv on What'sontv!

How about starting the week with some great news?

Liv is joining the TV series Harlots - as a series regular (starting from the upcoming second season)!

from Hollywood Reporter:
The Leftovers grad has joined Hulu's Harlots as a series regular for its upcoming second season.

Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, Harlots follows the Wells family, led by matriarch Margaret (Samantha Morton). Tyler will play Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam, the aristocratic social butterfly whose long-held secrets keep her in the thrall of Lydia Quigley (Lesley Manville). She is an increasingly desperate victim of Lydia’s blackmail. Trapped in a loveless marriage, Lady Fitz will find an unexpected friend and ally in courtesan Charlotte Wells (Jessica Brown Findlay).


from Variety:
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."

Q&A for Gunpowder took place two weeks ago, and some mags/newspapers posted some tidbits from the session:

Daily Star:
Liv was told she needed to have an English accent for the drama, which also stars Game Of Thrones' Kit Harington as Guy Fawkes' leader Robert Catesby.

But Liv says playing elf maiden Arwen in the movies based on JRR Tolkien books came in handy.

She admits: "Thank God I'd done an English accent a few times before. It was really interesting because it's been over 10 years since I have done the accent at all. But The Lord Of The Rings was such a long shoot over the course of three and a half years, it was always something we had to slip in and out of.

"I worked with the same dialect coach so it was interesting to hear my Lord Of The Rings character Arwen's voice again - as it has kind of become my English voice."

And she had to wear a bustle to boost her bottom - making her look like Kim Kardashian.

She added: "Just getting dressed takes a while as there are so many layers of corset and stockings and a funny thing called a bustle.

"It's like a pillow that creates a big behind."



Mirror:
American Liv is starring as Anne Vaux in Gunpowder - and had to get back into a British accent, 10 years after she last starred as Arwen in Lord of the Rings.
But she managed to get straight back into the swing of things, comparing it to riding a bike.
She said: "Thank God, I've done an English accent a few times before in films like The Lord of the Rings, Onegin and Plunkett & Macleane.

"So I got together with my dialect coaches that I worked on with those projects and discovered there was an English voice still in there!
"It was really interesting, because it's been over ten years since I have done the accent at all.

"But The Lord of the Rings in particular was such a long shoot, I think we shot over the course of three and a half years, so it was always something we had to slip in and out of.

"I worked with the same dialect coach, so it was interesting to hear Arwen's voice again - as it has kind of become my English voice."



Examiner:
American-born Liv Tyler had just three weeks to rediscover her English accent for the role of Anne Vaux.

She said: "I moved to London last year and had a baby girl, so I was really excited to be here. I thought it would be fun to work in the UK and then my agent called saying she had "this incredible script in three-parts"... I read the script and had a video call with director, J Blakeson and then they were like "Oh by the way - it starts filming in two weeks. Can you do an English accent?"

"Thank God, I've done an English accent a few times before in films like The Lord Of The Rings.

"So I said yes, I would love to be a part of it and it all happened very fast. I got on the train to Leeds and there I was, in a ruff and full 17th century costume as Lady Anne."
