Switched At Birth is about two girls from opposite walks of life who discover they were switched at birth.
The 26-year-old actress chatted with E! about her character, Daphne, a teenager with hearing loss and said that the show will have a lot of romance going on.
“In the second episode, my character starts the beginnings of this relationship with Bay’s (Vanessa Marano) ex-boyfriend and that is obviously going to get heated very quickly,’ she said, “Vanessa has this looming relationship with someone who I refer to in the first episode as my brother, so we are very close as well. ABC Family does an amazing job of casting these gorgeous men to look at and they ensue drama from there and there are lots of secrets.”
Katie is also excited for viewers to see that Daphne is a normal high school teenager.
“She has problems with grade, and boys and struggles with her family and she happens to be deaf. I think that’s an interesting concept and one that viewers are not used to seeing but seeing a deaf character in their homes every week, I think will help a lot of the hearing community to realize that there really are not a lot of differences and for the deaf community to see that that hearing are not always so bad. I think people are afraid of what they’re not familiar with.” Katie told E!
Switched at Birth airs on Mondays at @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC Family.
