Laura Spencer joined The Big Bang Theory in Season 7 as Raj Koothrappali’s latest girlfriend, Emily Sweeney. In Season 9, we’ll be seeing a lot more of her now that she’s been promoted to a regular on the series. Like comic book store owner Stuart, she won’t appear in every episode but will be credited with the main cast when she does appear.
On Bones, Laura Spencer plays squintern Jessica Warren who first appeared at the end of Season 9 in Episode 23 The Drama in the Queen. Does this mean Bones will be killing off another squint? Not this time! Laura reports Jessica Warren is still alive and well on Bones.
This season, Bones took the throne by becoming longest airing drama on FOX. There has been speculation that, after 10 years, Emily Deschanel or David Boreanaz may be ready to move on. However, with contract deals completed for some major cast members, Bones will return for Season 11.
After his many years behind the scenes, showrunner Stephen Nathan is taking a break with hopes of rejoining the series later in the season. Executive producer Jonathan Collier and co-executive producer Michael Peterson, who have been with the show since 2011, will step in to lead the show through Season 11.
Bones Executive Producer, Stephen Nathan, told TVLine Ignazio Serricchio will have a recurring role as the new squintern at the Jeffersonian. Being a prominent forensic anthropologist from Cuba, he feels he is Brennan’s equal, but she doesn’t feel the same. He’ll have to prove himself to gain her respect.
Serricchio is best known for his daytime soap opera roles including Diego Alcazar on General Hospital and as Alejandro “Alex” Chavez on The Young and the Restless. He also held a recurring role as Gabriel Lawrence on Ghost Whisperer and appeared on another Hart Hanson project, The Finder.
Red carpet host Timm Gunn challenged her to correctly demonstrate where the cut-out paper bones on his tray would appear on his body. She passed with flying colors. Looks like she’s picked up a trick or two from her nine years starring as a forensic anthropologist on Bones.
Emily Deschanel and Michael Weatherly (NCIS), “who fight crime, drink wine and look so fine,” presented the award for “Favorite Actress in a New TV Series” to Sarah Michelle Gellar for her role on The Crazy Ones.
This isn’t the first time Bones and Sarah Michelle Gellar have crossed paths. David Boreanaz played Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer long before putting on his FBI uniform. In 2013, Sarah’s husband, Freddie Prinze Jr., appeared as CIA Agent Danny Beck on the Bones episode “The Secrets in the Proposal”.
Bones was nominated for “Favorite Crime Drama” but lost to Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic in Castle.
