Actress Parminder Nagra to Join Cast of ‘Psych’

Alcatraz’s loss is Psych’s gain.

Actress Parminder Nagra, who was one of the cast members on the now defunct FOX drama ‘Alcatraz’, will be showing up in season seven of the popular USA Network dramedy Psych for multiple episodes as…wait for it….a new love interest for Gus (the wonderful Dule Hill).

That’s right, the ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ beauty will appear as Rachel, a beautiful and charming woman who Gus falls for. According to TV Line she seems to be the perfect girl for Gus to contemplate having a real relationship with until it is revealed “that she has a secret that challenges his preparedness for a serious relationship”.

That doesn’t sound cryptic at all, right?

Nagra has also appeared in the box office film ‘Ella Enchanted’ with Anne Hathaway and Hugh Dancy as well as a recurring role in the long-running medical drama ‘ER’.

The 16-episode seventh season of ‘Psych’ is current under production, but fans will have to wait until probably early 2013 for new episodes to air on the USA Network.
