Katie Leclerc Reacts to Teen Choice Nomination -- EXCLUSIVE!

When we heard that Switched at Birth had racked up FIVE Teen Choice Award nominations, JJJ had to call up one of our favorites and get her reaction.

Katie Leclerc, who stars as Daphne in the hit ABC Family series, shared with us exclusively, “I feel amazing. I am so excited. I was really excited to present and be involved in a great celebration of talent. I heard about the nomination only a few days apart from the presenting and I’m even more excited. I’m so honored to share the nomination with Sean Berdy and Skyler Samuels. ABC Family is doing great work and are definitely well represented at the Teen Choice Awards and I’m excited to be a part of it.”

“My mom was jumping up and down,” Katie tells us of telling her family. “I want to win a surfboard! I am just so proud of everyone involved in Switched At Birth. I think it really shows what we felt on set. We all walked away [after wrapping] feeling so proud and it’s great to be involved in such a ground breaking show in so many ways.”

“I want everyone to win!” Katie added. “Thank you to all the fans and please vote — because I really want a surfboard (laughs)!”
