Nashville Scoop: Boardwalk Empire Alum Meg Steedle to Catch Avery's Eye

Nashville Cast Meg Steedle

ABC’s Nashville is staging a “meet cute” — and has thus appropriately cast Boardwalk Empire alum Meg Steedle in a guest-starring role.

TVLine has learned that Steedle will appear in a midseason episode as a single mom that Avery sparks to after they have a charming first encounter. (In related news: Juliette, please come back as soon as possible!)

Steedle first “hinted” at her Nashville visit on Twitter:

In addition to her Season 3 run as Boardwalk‘s Billie Kent, Steedle’s TV credits include a series regular stint on The Mysteries of Laura, a scene-stealing turn in the NCIS episode “The Admiral’s Daughter” and a visit to Grey’s Anatomy.

Nashville airs its midseason finale tonight at 10/9c, then resumes Season 4 on March 16.
