Katie Leclerc proved to be one of the Summer's breakout stars thanks to the hit ABC Family show "Switched at Birth." So what is next for her as she waits for the return of the show? Guest starring on "The Big Bang Theory"!
According to THR, Katie will guest star as Emily, a potential love interest for Kunal Nayyar's Raj Koothrappali, in the upcoming fifth season of the CBS hit.
And much like her character on "Switched at Birth," Emily will be deaf and work well with Raj's inability to talk to the opposite sex without the assistance of alcohol. Penny (Kaley Cuoco) will bring the two together, setting the pair up on a date during the episode scheduled to air Oct. 6.
Sounds like a cute couple! We can't wait to see the episode.
