Kher was recently nominated for the Best Supporting Actor TV BAFTA for his role in another BBC series “The Boy with The Topknot”.

“‘Mrs Wilson’ is set in a very interesting background and follows a gripping storyline which had me hooked as I read it. Not to mention, it is great to be part of such a talented star-cast ensemble. I look forward to shooting in the next month,” Kher said about the project.

Alison’s real-life granddaughter, actor Ruth Wilson, will play her in the series, which is set between 1940s and 1960s London.

The series follows Alison Wilson (Ruth Wilson), who thinks she is happily married until her husband dies and a woman turns up on her doorstep claiming that she is the real Mrs. Wilson. Alison is determined to prove the validity of her own marriage – and Alec’s love for her – but is instead led into a world of disturbing secrets.

“Game of Thrones” star Ian Glen will play Wilson’s husband Alec in the series.

The cast also features actors Keeley Hawes and Fiona Shaw. The three-part drama will be directed by Richard Laxton from a script by Anna Symon.

The production on the series started on April 16 in Northern Ireland and London.
