According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gwendoline Christie is joining Elisabeth Moss in ‘Top of the Lake 2: China Girl‘. Full details can be read below:

Confirming a year of talk and speculation, Elisabeth Moss is officially on board for a second season of Jane Campion’s celebrated Top of the Lake — dubbed Top of the Lake 2: China Girl. Joining the returning star will be Game of Thrones and Star Wars: The Force Awakens actress Gwendoline Christie.

The second season moves the action from New Zealand to Australia, picking up four years after the events of the first season when the unidentified body of an Asian girl washes up on to Sydney’s Bondi Beach. The case seems hopeless until Robin discovers that she was not the only victim.

Top of the Lake premiered in 2013 to much critical acclaim (and a Golden Globe win and Emmy nomination for Moss), but it was billed as a limited series — something echoed by the creative team. A second season was announced in 2014, but there was little word from writer-director Campion and co-scribe Gerard Lee on what (and who) it might entail.
