Ted Danson's Daughter: Guest-Starring on CSI Was "So Much Fun"
CSI - Kate Danson
It was recently Bring Your Daughter to Work Day on the set of CSI.
Ted Danson's daughter, actress Kate Danson, will guest-star on the April 3 episode as lawyer Jill McDermott, CBS announced earlier this week. During the episode, the CSI team finds a body near a forest reserve and discovers what might be a serial killer and his bizarre lair. Apparently the case ultimately forces the real-life father and daughter to square off.
"I play a lawyer who knows she's in the right and the CSI team have done something wrong," Kate Danson told WENN. "So I come pretty hard at my dad and dig into him, which was a lot of fun to play."
"I was really fortunate to get to work with him on CSI," she continued. "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."
The character could potentially become a recurring role, the actress said.
CSI airs Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS. Will you tune in to see the Dansons' father/daughter dynamic?
