The British actress, who plays Margaery Tyrell on "Game of Thrones," has joined the CBS drama's take on the classic Sherlock Holmes stories as the revered Irene Adler. TV Guide was the first to report the casting news earlier this week.

Adler has been an unseen character on "Elementary" Season 1. She was described as Sherlock's ex who died at the hands of serial killer "M.", which fueled Sherlock's descent into drug addiction. When Sherlock later confronted "M." -- who turned out to be Sebastian Moran (Vinnie Jones) -- he learned that Adler was actually killed by Moraiarty.

In November, "Elementary" executive producer Rob Doherty told TV Guide, "As we build our Irene and we get into more detail, obviously, she has to be fairly unique, in that someone like Sherlock found himself attracted to her ... As we've said in the past, he doesn't really like to get close to anyone, let alone women. The way we've depicted him, to this point in the season, he's not an especially romantic kind of guy ... Irene has to have a certain strength. I see someone who has to have managed to surprise Sherlock in small, but significant ways. He's so easily bored by the predictable."
