Bethany Joy Lenz Joins American Gothic

Bethany Joy Lenz is poised to bring some needed TLC to one of American Gothic‘s extremely troubled characters.

TVLine has confirmed that the One Tree Hill alum/recent Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. guest star will recur on CBS’ summertime whodunnit drama as April, a vibrant, insightful nurse at a rehab facility who develops a meaningful bond with one of the Hawthornes.

Hmm, is drug addict Cam (played by Shameless‘ Justin Chatwin) headed for a hard tumble off the wagon…? Perhaps prompted by the stress of keeping the deep, verrrrrry dark family secret he and Tessa (Megan Ketch) just uncovered?

Lenz’s previous TV credits also include Dexter, episodes of CSI, Charmed and Felicity, and of course Guiding Light. She makes her American Gothic debut in August.

CBS’ American Gothic airs Wednesdays at 10/9c.
