Many of our readers will recognize Josie Loren from her stint as Kaylie on the hit ABC Family original series Make It Or Break It. We loved that show. And we loved Josie on it! So we’re happy to hear that Josie Loren has landed a potentially series regular role on The Mentalist. TVLine reports that Josie will be joining the season 7 cast of the hit CBS series in a major recurring role.
Loren will play Michelle Vega, the newest addition to Patrick Jane’s FBI crew. She’s a rookie fresh out of the FBI Academy: eager, ambitious, hungry to learn. She’s never heard of Jane, knows nothing of his methods or past, and casts a skeptical eye on his unorthodox, rule-busting ways.
Loren — whose deal includes a series regular option — will partly fill the void left by original cast members Owain Yeoman and Amanda Righetti, who exited the series in the spring.
We’re so happy for her and can’t wait to see what she brings to the show. Congrats, Josie!
