TVLine has learned that Sandra Vergara will guest-star — and do her own singing — on the Feb. 13 episode of the CBS procedural, playing Silvana, a beautiful Latin pop star who is set to make her long-awaited U.S. debut in Las Vegas when her sister Marta is murdered.
Adding more discord to the story: When Marta’s killer sets his sights on Silvana, the singer tries to stay focused on her about-to-explode career while fretting over who exactly is friend or foe within her inner circle.
Vergara’s previous Stateside TV credits include appearances on CSI: Miami and Nip/Tuck. She also had a run on the Peruvian series Chico de mi Barrio.
CSI airs its midseason finale tonight at 10/9c, then resumes Season 13 on Jan. 16.
