The Americans‘ Annet Mahendru is going from being a triple agent to performing triple axels, on USA Network’s White Collar.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Mahendru will guest-star in the sixth episode of Season 5 as Katya, a talented Russian figure skater who shows Olympic promise.
How might Peter and Neal figure in? Well, it appears that Katya might not be in her homeland’s best graces, seeing as onetime Continuum baddie/Mistresses newcomer Mike Dopud is appearing in the same episode as Sergei, a Russian gangster.
Mahendru, whose previous TV credits also include 2 Broke Girls and Big Time Rush, can also be seen in the pilot for NBC’s The Blacklist, premiering this fall. Following her well-received freshman run as The Americans‘ Nina, the actress was promoted to series regular for Season 2.
White Collar launches its fifth season sometime this fall.
