The actress, whose other small screen credits include “Hannibal” and “Sex Education”, plays Constance, matriarch of a wealthy family who — despite the town’s bias against women — formed a powerful web of allies through money, charm & ruthlessness.

Sutter is best known for creating cult series “Sons of Anarchy”.
