The Irish actress was announced by HBO who released news on new cast members and details for the second season of His Dark Materials at the show’s Comic-Con@Home panel last week.

Kirby is joined by new cast members Jade Anouka, and Terence Stamp in the drama’s new season, which is based on the second book in Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” series, “The Subtle Knife.” They join returning cast members Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, Amir Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda, as well as the previously announced Andrew Scott.

The second season picks up following the events of the Season 1 finale, which saw Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) open a bridge to a new world, and Lyra (Keen), distraught over the death of her best friend, following him into the unknown. Season 2 finds Lyra in a strange and mysterious abandoned city — Cittàgazze — where she meets Will (Wilson), who is also running from a troubled past.

Kirby, will play the role of Dr Mary Malone, who heads up the Dark Matter Research Team at an Oxford university in our world, whilst Scott appears as John Parry and will be joined by his Fleabag co-star Phoebe Waller Bridge, who has a small voiceover role as dæmon Sayan Kötör.

The series is executive produced by Dan McCulloch, Jane Tranter, Joel Collins and Julie Gardner for Bad Wolf, alongside Philip Pullman, Jack Thorne, Tom Hooper, Otto Bathhurst. Deborah Forte, Toby Emmerich and Carolyn Blackwood of New Line Cinema; and Ben Irving and Piers Wenger of BBC One also executive produce.
