Bathe takes over the role of Sierra, a mother of young triplets with whom Linda turns to for help. According to sources, the decision to reconceive the role came after the table read earlier this week.
On This Is Us, Bathe recurs as Yvette, the mother of Young Randall’s friend as seen in flashbacks. The actress’ credits also include Army Wives, Girlfriends and Boston Legal.
Also cast in Linda From HR as a regular is Ellis Rubin: he “will play Linda’s son Howie, who is awkward and still coming in to his own” (source).
