Fringe star Jasika Nicole is being welcomed with open arms into the drama filled world of Shondaland. The actress, who played Astrid on Fringe (which just recently wrapper its sixth and final season), has landed a guest appearance on the popular ABC show Scandal. This casting news comes one month after Nicole’s Fringe co-star John Noble was cast as a guest-star on the CBS series The Good Wife for the March 24th episode.
Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes had a total geek-out on Twitter yesterday when she announced that Fringe star Jasika Nicole would be showing up to her ABC drama as a guest star. "We have Jasika Nicole (Fringe's Astrid) guest starring on ep 219 of @ScandalABC. Which makes me go totally fan-girl with excitement!" Rhimes tweeted to her band of loyal Twitter followers.
Besides Rhimes little outburst of enthusiasm, she has not released any information about the character that Nicole will play. All of the details are being kept very top secret, but reps for the show have confirmed that her role will be “very surprising”.
The 19th episode of Scandal is set to air in April.
Do you have any guesses about which character Nicole will be on Scandal? If Rhimes excitement is an indicator of anything, I think that fans can expect something exciting from Nicole’s guest appearance.
