Vanessa, who plays artistic teen Bay Kennish on "Switched at Birth," will guest star in an upcoming episode of CBS' CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as Samantha, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
In the harrowing role, Marano will play the estranged daughter of an ex-con named Frank, who will be played by The O.C.'s Johnny Messner. In the episode, Frank is an ex-con who lost touch with Samantha and learns she was a street gang groupie and goes on a one-man war to get his little girl back.
We can't wait to see the episode! We loved Vanessa when she was on "Dexter," so we know she'll do great.
