Another notable role was as Dr. Tara Knowles, later Tara Knowles-Teller, in the acclaimed FX show ‘Sons of Anarchy‘. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Maggie Siff movie/tv show? Well, the good news is that we have a clear answer to that question. Here’s the list of upcoming films/shows of Maggie Siff scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Maggie Siff movies/shows would be as good as some of her recent ones.
1. Billions (2016-)
‘Billions‘ is a drama series starring Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis. It is based loosely on the legal battle between District Attorney Preet Bharara and a hedge fund manager Steve Cohen. Giamatti plays Charles Rhoades Jr., based on Bharara, while Lewis plays Robert Axelrod, based on Cohen. The two men are deadlocked into a deadly battle of power, as Rhoades tries to take down Axelrod. Rhoades motives are clear. He is driven by distaste towards those who attempt to use their money and power to find loopholes in the justice system and evade the consequences of their action. Rhoades is convinced that Axelrod is one such person who uses insider trading and bribery to increase his firm’s wealth, and keeps up appearances of being charitable, to evade suspicion.
So where does Maggie Siff fit into all this? Well, Siff plays the role of Wendy Rhoades, the wife of Charles. Wendy is an ambitious and career driven woman. As a psychiatrist and in-house performance coach, she has been working for Axelrod for over 15 years. Wendy is also a driving force in Charles’ own character since she makes more money than him, which makes him insecure in turn. In a bid not to be overshadowed by his wife, who is a Yale alum same as him, Charles often tries to take on big opponents and Axelrod fits the bill perfectly. However, this might just turn out to be one battle that is too much for the gutsy lawyer to handle. Notably, Siff worked in a temp position for a short time at a hedge fund after completing her graduation and the actress has drawn on this experience to play her part in ‘Billions’. The show has already aired for three seasons and Showtime renewed it for Season 4 on April 26, 2018. The new season of ‘Billions’ will be airing on March 17, 2019.
