'Pretty Little Liars': Olympic champ Missy Franklin lands guest spot

Posted on

Missy Franklin’s gold medals have won her a ticket to Rosewood.

The Olympic swimmer, who scored five medals in London this summer, is set to guest star on Pretty Little Liars, the network announced today.

In the episode, Emily (Shay Mitchell), who is a swimmer, ends up having coffee at The Brew with the gold medalist, who is playing herself.

Franklin, who was also honored by being named one of EW’s Olympic Studs, is far from the only stand-out Olympian to score a guest spot on a scripted show this season. Ryan Lochte is set to make a cameo on 90210, Gabby Douglas will appear on The Vampire Diaries, and McKayla Maroney is going to appear on Hart of Dixie.

Pretty Little Liars, which held its summer finale in August and was recently renewed for a fourth season, returns Oct. 23 with a special Halloween episode before continuing its season in January.
