Nicole Kidman looks far from her usually glam self in this first image of her in Top Of The Lake.

The Tinseltown star, 49, has signed up for the second run of the critically acclaimed series, which will be on BBC2 next year.

She is playing Australian mother Julia, whose story will intersect with Detective Robin Griffin (Elisabeth Moss).

Top Of The Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery that begins four years on from the explosive ending of series one, which saw Elisabeth’s character investigating the disappearance of the pregnant 12-year-old daughter of a drug lord.

After the shocking events that rocked her hometown in New Zealand, Detective Griffin is trying to rebuild her life when a girl’s body washes up on Bondi Beach.
