Sharon Leal Will Play Russell Hornsby's Love Interest On 'Grimm'

Sharon Leal

Sharon Leal has joined the cast of NBC's fantasy drama Grimm, in what will be a recurring role, playing a physical therapist, helping Hank (played by Russell Hornsby) recover from his ankle injury. 


Could there be a romance budding here for old Hank?

It looks that way, as Hornsby himself previously shared that his character just might find himself a love interest during the upcoming 3rd season, which debuts on October 25.


Leal's character is described as "smart, beautiful and mysterious," a winning combo in my book!

Both have previously appeared in the same TV series, in Suits in 2011. 

Up next for Leal, look for her playing opposite Cuba Gooding Jr. in Fox's Greg Belanti legal drama series Guilty, if that project is ever given life.

And on the big screen, she stars in Lionsgate's adaptation of erotic fiction writer Zane's popular novel Addicted, which will be out on March 14, 2014

She also plays Cuba Gooding Jr.'s wife in a slave-themed drama Carry Me Home (previously titled Something Whispered) - a tale set in 1850, which centers on a man named Samuel (Gooding), who attempts to free his family from institutionalized slavery, intent on escaping from the tobacco plantation they have been forced to call their home for two generations.
