It has just been announced that Kelly Macdonald will star as the guest lead in the new series of the BBC show.

Macdonald may be best known for her performances in Trainspotting, State Of Play, No Country For Old Men, Boardwalk Empire and, most recently, The Victim and Giri/Haji.

She will play Joanne Davidson, who show creator Jed Mercurio said "will prove the most enigmatic adversary AC-12 have ever faced."

Mother of God.

Piers Wenger, Controller of BBC Drama, says: "We’re delighted that Kelly Macdonald is coming on board for series six. She’s one of the UK’s most versatile actors and we’re excited for viewers to see what Jed’s scripts have in store for her when she joins the Line Of Duty team."

Early work on the sixth season of the show has already begun, with main cast members pictured together last week, but sadly, filming of the show won't begin until next year.
