‘New York’ Casts Young Actress For Family Role

CSI: New York found a young actress to play the daughter of newcomer Jo Danville (Sela Ward). (Contains minor spoilers.)

As CSI Files previously reported, Jo’s daughter was adopted from a woman she helped put in jail. The series cast That’s So Raven actress Sydney Park for the role. The character was originally going to be a boy, but the plans changed. “We saw a lot of great actors, but felt that we were leaping too soon in casting a boy,” executive producer Pam Veasey told TV Guide. “We opened up the casting to a daughter, too, and found a dynamite actress in Sydney. We felt it was important to make our priority finding a talented child of any race or gender.”
