In real life, Casey Desmond is a talented and successful musician, songwriter and recording artist. Her dance rhythms and soaring vocals are quite impressive. She performs all over. She has been featured on numerous shows, including NBC's "The Voice."
On Quiet Desperation, Casey Desmond plays a version of herself in the role of one of Rob's closest friends and confidantes. It is obvious a mutual respect exists between the two. Casey's one gripe regarding their friendship is that she wishes Rob would make her the focus of the conversation more often, instead of discussing his tattoos and music all the time.
