According to a report at The Hollywood Reporter, actress Nikki DeLoach, best known for her role on the MTV comedy series ‘Awkward.’ will be making an appearance on an upcoming episode of the long-running CBS procedural CSI.

DeLoach will play Heather, a “Type-A personality, who is ambitious, tightly-wound and a ‘company ass-kicker'”. During a corporate training at a wilderness retreat, her fellow team member is found dead, making Heather the prime suspect. The episode will be entitled “Fearless” and is expected to air on May 1.

TV viewers might be surprised to know that DeLoach got her start on ‘The All New Mickey Mouse Club’ alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Ryan Gosling, J.C.

Since then she has appeared in the short-lived shows ‘North Shore’ and ‘Windfall’ and appeared in episodes of ‘CSI: NY’, ‘Cold Case’, ‘Without a Trace’, ‘Days of Our Lives’ and ‘Ringer’.
