Bridgit Mendler has nabbed a recurring role in the fifth season of the Nashville TV show, coming to CMT on January 5th, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mendler played Candace on Undateable, which was cancelled after three seasons on NBC, back in May.
On Nashville, Mendler will play Ashley Wilkenson, “an internet sensation with 30 million viewers who is about to record her first album. Sexy, self-assured and stubborn, Ashley is extremely talented. But underneath her certainty is a well of vulnerability.” She joins Jen Richards, Joseph David-Jones, Cameron Scoggins, Murray Bartlett, and Rhiannon Giddens, who recently booked recurring parts on the country music drama series.
THR says, “In addition to her acting career, Mendler is known for her musical talents. She released her first studio album, Hello My Name Is… in 2012 and is getting ready to release a new EP, Nemesis, on Nov. 18.”
