Check out an excerpt of the interview.
Toboni originally was scheduled to be in three episodes but will wind up appearing in four. Kouf says they’ll probably bring her character back next season for a few more.
The TV newcomer, who’s from San Francisco, sounds as if she’s still amazed at landing the Grimm part. “I got more nervous auditioning for the Michigan (short film) production than this, because I didn’t think there was a shot of getting this.”
She says the “Grimm” cast adopted her and helped her feel like part of the on-set family. “I’m kind of the little sister. They’ve all been super-nice and welcoming. They even signed my first call sheet and framed it, which was so nice and generous. It’s been fantastic.”
