Former “” siren (ex-Billie Reed) has had quite an impressive run since departing Salem in 1999 with roles on shows like “,” “,” “” and “,” but her latest gig puts her back in the soap orbit — at least partially: She’ll be featured in an upcoming episode of ABC’s “,” which stars former “” actor, (ex-Joey Buchanan)!

A rep for “Castle” confirms that the actress will be in an upcoming episode, which TV Line reports will revolve around the murder of a -like movie star. Allen will play Naomi Duvray, who’s described as “a former silver screen siren who starred in a slew of critically unacclaimed 1980s action movies,” and “the wife of yet-to-be-cast Brock Harmon, the murder vic’s onetime regular costar and now the frontman for a B-movie franchise.”

There’s no word yet on when Allen’s episode will air, but rumor has it that it won’t be long.

“Just booked a fun role on @Castle_ABC,” the actress tweeted last week. “Looking forward to playing with @NathanFillion and @Stana_Katic!”
