Pretty Little Liars player Vanessa Ray is relocating from Rosewood to the Big Apple, with a recurring role on Blue Bloods.
TVLine has learned exclusively that PLL‘s erstwhile wild child Cece Drake has been cast as Edit “Eddie” Janko, a rookie cop who is assigned as Jamie Reagan’s new partner upon graduating from the Academy.
Described as “fresh, eager and ready to roll,” Eddie’s reasons for joining the NYPD, like Jamie’s, have to do with the circumstances of her upbringing — though she comes from a far different legacy than that of the Reagans.
Ray’s other TV credits include a March 2013 episode of The Mentalist, Suits (as Mike’s ex Jenny) and Damages Season 3. PLL‘s CeCe, meanwhile, is due to resurface in a pair of August episodes.
Blue Bloods launches Season 4 on Friday, Sept. 27 at 10/9c, with Hawaii Five-0 as its new lead-in.
