Vanessa Marano is switching it up a bit with a new guest-starring TV gig!
JJJ can exclusively reveal that the 21-year-old actress will stop by the brand new CBS show NCIS: New Orleans, which premieres September 23!
She is set to play Natalie, a sophomore college student who is described as beautiful, smart, sympathetic and sweet, and somewhat of an old soul. But her world is shaken once she wakes up next to a murdered young man.
After it’s revealed that Natalie is a collegiate call-girl, her naive demeanor shifts and she changes into a capable young woman who can handle herself.
Congrats, Vanessa! We can’t wait to watch!

There’s really nothing like a sister, right? Sure, you will most likely want to tear their hair out almost every day of the week for something stupid, but every other moment that you’re not mad, they’re really the best.
Victoria Justice posted the most adorable selfie with her younger sis, Madison Grace, on Instagram on Thursday afternoon (August 28) and JJJ aww’ed until the sun came up.
“Love my lil Maddy so much :) @themadgrace,” she captioned with the pic.
And just a few weeks ago, Maddy was singing the sister love too: “Sister – A person who’s been where you’ve been, someone you can call when things aren’t going right. More than just family, a sister is forever a friend. I love you @victoriajustice !!!!”
