‘Fringe’ Alum Jasika Nicole to Guest Star on ‘Scandal’

Actress Jasika Nicole, who appeared as Astrid Farnsworth in all 5 seasons of the critically acclaimed sci-fi series ‘Fringe’, will be making her first appearance on TV since the FOX drama ended its run.

According to a report at TV Line, Nicole will appear in an upcoming episode of the popular ABC Washington DC-themed drama Scandal. Unfortunately, the details of what character she will be playing is being kept under wraps, which seems typical since the drama was created by Shonda Rhimes, the queen of “no spoilers”. But Rhimes did share with the folks at TV Line that the casting of Nicole “makes me go totally fan-girl with excitement”!

Besides her role on ‘Fringe’, Nicole appeared in an episode of ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’ as well as the very short-lived series ‘The Return of Jezebel James’ and the box office film ‘She’s Out Of My League’.

The next new episode of ‘Scandal’ will air on Thursday, March 21 at 10/9c.
