Thursday September 15, 2016 - Jen Richards joins the cast of "Nashville"

Jen Richards, of Her Story fame, will join the show. The transgender actress will portray Allyson Del Lago in a recurring role. She will play the part of “a tough but understanding physical therapist who helps a series regular through one of their most difficult challenges,” a press release from the network reveals.

It’s not clear which series regular will be seeing the physical therapist, though fans will speculate that it will be Juliette Barnes, whose plane disappeared in a cliffhanger that closed Season 4.

Jen Richards is an Emmy-nominated writer, actress and producer. Her casting marks CMT’s first transgender character and the first out transgender actor on the network.

"Nashville" is slated to premiere on CMT (switching from ABC) with a two-hour episode on Thursday, Jan. 5.
