Deaf actress Shoshannah Stern has been cast in a new CBS series called Jericho.  She will play one of the townspeople cut off from the rest of the world after a mysterious nuclear chain reaction rocks the country.  The role was not intended for a deaf actress but Stern impressed the show’s executives, with producer Jon Turteltaub calling Stern an amazing actress who not only gets better and better, but also gets prettier and prettier in every scene.
