‘Hart of Dixie’ Promotes Kaitlyn Black

Actress Kaitlyn Black has played Annabeth Nass on Hart of Dixie on a recurring basis since early in the first season of The CW show, but as of last week Black has been promoted to full-time status.

According to TV Line, the actress had this to say about her promotion, “I’m overjoyed to be joining such a talented cast and extremely grateful to be part of the CW family”. While series creator Leila Gerstein had this to say about Black and her character Annabeth, “Kaitlyn started off with one line, and we fell in love with her (since then) her part has grown and grown as the writing staff has become more enraptured with Annabeth (and Kaitlyn). And, at this point, she has become so integral to the series — as Lemon’s (series regular Jaime King) best friend, as Lavon’s (series regular Cress Williams) girlfriend and as Zoe’s (series lead Rachel Bilson) confidante — that we needed to make sure she was all ours!”

Prior to her appearance on ‘Hart of Dixie’, Black has had guest roles on ‘Cold Case’, ‘Raising Hope’ and the box office film ‘Officer Down’.

‘Hart of Dixie’ will be back for its third season on The CW starting on Monday, October 7 at 8/7c.
