Kate Danson, Ted Danson’s real-life daughter, will be joining him on “CSI,” in an episode that airs next week, on April 3. Kate plays a lawyer, and she describes the experience of being on the show as “so much fun.”However, don’t expect her character, Jill McDermott, and her father’s to get along.
“I play a lawyer who knows she's in the right and the CSI team have done something wrong. So I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play,” she says, as cited by TV Guide.
“I was really fortunate to get to work with him on CSI. It was so much fun. We never worked together like that. We did a short film together but nothing professional until now, so it was really great going head to head with him,” Kate continues.
Even better, her Jill character might return in other episodes as well: producers are thinking of making hers a recurring role, if audiences respond positively to it.
