Multiple gold-medal winning swimmer Missy Franklin is stopping by Rosewood for a visit, Warner Bros announced today!
Their release said: “From winning gold medals and setting a world record in London, to grabbing coffee in Rosewood, PA, with the swim team’s favorite shark, Missy Franklin — the four-time gold medalist — is set to guest star in an upcoming episode of ABC Family’s hit series Pretty Little Liars, produced by Warner Horizon Television.
In the episode, Emily (Shay Mitchell) — a competitive swimmer for the Rosewood High School Sharks swim team — is stunned when Franklin, appearing as herself, turns up at The Brew just to meet her. Once Emily recovers from the shock of meeting the medalist, the two swimmers talk shop.
Franklin became a household name during the 2012 Summer Olympics when she won four gold medals and one bronze. She currently holds the world record in the 200-meter backstroke and the U.S. record in both the 100-meter and 200-meter backstroke.”
I am a huge Missy fan, and she’s always been great in interviews – can’t wait to see how she does playing herself on one of her favorite shows! What do you think? First Ryan Lochte on 90210, then Gabby Douglas on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES; what Olympian do you want to see next?
