Gabby Douglas to Appear on Nickelodeon’s ‘Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Dawn’
Gabby Douglas is flipping her way onto Nickelodeon TV series Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Dawn in a guest starring role.
The Olympic gold medalist will appear in the show’s season finale, in a Wizard of Oz-themed episode, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The site provided a description of the episode, which you can read below:
The season finale, titled “The Wonderful Wizard of Quads,” finds a hometown celebrity (Tia Mowry-Hardrict) returning to Boulder, Colo., to direct the local production of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The Quads know these are the roles they were born to play, but when Dawn does not get the part of Dorothy, she goes on a mission to prove that she deserves the part over a theater diva (Jade Pettyjohn).
Douglas was excited to step onto the small screen for her role, admitting that although gymnastics will always be her first love, she’s always had a nose for acting. “I’ve always had a passion for acting, even when I was in gymnastics. It’s an art, and it’s fascinating to me how people can be moved by your performance,” Douglas told THR.
Although not many details about her role have been revealed, the athlete says that it was a fun one that was fairly easy for her to relate to. “There is a lot of flipping, which is very relatable, and kind of sassy lines. I saw myself in the character, how I would act and things I would say,” she said.
“I don’t want to be cliche but this role. I am a huge fan of Nickelodeon so, this is the main thing for me,” Douglas said. “It’s been so much fun.”
Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, & Dawn airs Saturdays at 8:30pm on Nickelodeon.
