The White Lotus has added another impressive name to its season 3 cast, with Blackpink star Lisa set to join the ensemble.

The singer and rapper will make her acting debut in the upcoming season of the HBO show, Variety reports, though who she will be playing remains under wraps for now.

The star is set to be credited under her full name Lalisa Manobal, with the star becoming the second member of the K-pop group to appear in an HBO drama following Jennie's turn in The Idol last year.

"The scripts are a testament to [creator] Mike [White]'s skill and ability to tell the most smart and entertaining stories," she added to Vanity Fair.

"I mean, everything that he does is like a lesson to me as an actor and a performer. And as a writer myself, he takes folks on a journey. Everyone needs to buckle up, because it's going to get real!"
