Switched At Birth’s Katie Leclerc To Guest On THE BIG BANG THEORY

EW has revealed a few spoilers behind what’s to come for Raj (Kunal Nayyar) in the new season of THE BIG BANG THEORY.

Good news for fans, Raj will have a love interest this fall and its none other than ABC Family’s Switched At Birth actress Katie Leclerc. The performer will show up in the episode slated to air on October 6th as a deaf friend of Penny’s who finds Raj interesting. As pointed out by EW, Raj has been the “odd man out” since Sheldon (Jim Parsons) has been busy with Amy Farrah Fowler, Leonard’s current juggling act with two woman, and his best friend Howard’s (Simon Helberg) eventual entrance into the married life.

To date Katie Leclerc, who landed her first gig in a 2005 episode of Veronica Mars as Crystal, has gone on to appear in the TV series Fashion House in the role of Sara, The Ones, and the recently cancelled The Hard Times of RJ Berger.

The Big Bang Theory will return in its fifth season on CBS September 22nd with back to back episodes (The Skank Reflex Analysis and The Infestation Hypothesis) scheduled to air.
