Switched at Birth Star Cast on The Big Bang Theory

by at . Comments

A Switched at Birth star is about to switch episodes. For one week at least.

Katie Leclerc, who portrays Daphne Vasquez on that ABC Family hit, will appear on the October 6 episode of The Big Bang Theory as a love interest for Raj.

Like she does on Switched at Birth, and like she is in real life, the actress will play a hearing-impaired woman who gets set up with Ray by Penny. It's unknown at the moment on how many episodes Leclerc will guest star.

The Big Bang Theory returns on September 22 and you can view photos from the premiere NOW.

Actually she is partially deaf. I can't remember what she called it but she has a condition where her hearing goes in and out. Sometimes she can hear fine, sometimes she needs a hearing aid, and sometimes she can't hear at all. It's in one of the behind-the-scenes videos.

"...who gets set up with Ray by Penny." Who's Ray? Do you mean Raj?

She's not actually deaf in real life

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Penny, there's only one cookie with something in the middle that solves life's problems, and that's an Oreo. Or a Nutter Butter, if you're in a pinch.
