Jessie (Debby Ryan) is going to meet her show business match in “Awkward” star Jillian Rose Reed.
Reed will be guest starring on an upcoming episode of Disney Channel’s “Jessie” as a backstabbing new friend, TheWrap has learned.
She will play Abbey on Episode 312 currently titled “Acting With the Frenemy.” Abbey seems to have a lot in common with Jessie and even befriends fellow lizard lover Ravi (Karan Brar). But, things change when Abbey and Jessie are up for the same part and the new girl lets her true competitive colors show in order to book the role.
A show representative could not confirm casting.
Reed currently plays the series regular role of Tamara on MTV’s “Awkward,” which is currently in its third season and is already renewed for a fourth. She also just guest-starred on Jack Black’s Yahoo series, “Ghost Ghirls.”
She also will appear in the upcoming independent film, “Confessions of a Womanizer,” alongside Andrew Lawrence and Gary Busey.
Reed is represented by Discover Management and Don Buchwald & Associates.
