Medium Star to Appear on LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT

Actress Sofia Vassilieva appeared on the CBS series Medium for seven seasons as Ariel Dubois, the oldest daughter of Joe and Allison Dubois, essentially growing up right before viewers’ eyes. Now, TV viewers will see a different side of her when she guest stars in an upcoming episode of LAW & ORDER: SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT.

Vassilieva will, according to TV Line, play Sarah Reese, “a self-reliant, bohemian girl and shining star of her middle-class suburban family who comes to New York City on a piano scholarship, but loses her inner light after she’s attacked in her own apartment”.

This will be a pivotal character in the episode that will also feature Andre Braugher, recently of Men of a Certain Age, who will play the defense attorney for Sarah’s attacker.

Vassilieva has been acting since she was a little girl, appearing in two Eloise movies, The Brady Bunch in the White House as well as the critically-acclaimed box office film My Sister’s Keeper.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is now in its 13th season, airing its next new episode of Wednesday, October 5 at 10/9c.
