Sarah Shahi is going back to work with an old friend.
The Person of Interest star will make her first on-screen appearance since giving birth to twins in March on the Sept. 13 episode of Ray Donovan. Shahi will play Hasmig, an Armenian pop star who needs a favor from Hollywood fixer Ray (Liev Schreiber).
In the exclusive first-look photo above, Shahi also shares some screen time with her L Word co-star Katherine Moennig, who plays Ray’s long-suffering assistant Lena. Shahi and Moennig previously played lovers in a rollercoaster romance that ultimately ended when Moennig’s character, Shane, left Shahi’s Carmen at the altar.
