The US Ambassador to Bulgaria, James Warlick, is turning into a TV star Thursday with a part in Bulgaria's hit series "Staklen Dom" (The Glass House).

The footage will be taken inside the building of the American Embassy in Sofia. This would not be Warlick's sole appearance during the new season, according to producers. He will film a total of 6 scenes.

The Ambassador is known to be a huge fan of the series and even organized a reception for its creators at the Embassy.

As expected, Warlick will portray the American Ambassador, but not himself. His character is the one of the good guy, who, however, sometimes breaks the rules, compromises in order to help others and seeks borderline solutions.

The Ambassador stated before the filming he was ecstatic about meeting another character - Kolev, the agent from the State Agency for National Security (DANS) portrayed by Bulgarian actor, Atanas Atanasov.

The new season is titled "Time for Truth" and producers are strictly keeping the storyline secret. It is known the screenwriters have done several versions and the final one is yet to be selected.

"The Glass House" is a family and criminal drama, a reflection of today's real-life Bulgarian society.

The saga involves the story of Kamen Kasabov (Kalin Vrachanski), who returns from the United States for the 60th birthday of his long-estranged father. They have not been in touch for 18 years at the time Kamen lands in Sofia.

The father Dimitar Kasabov (Stefan Danailov) is the majority owner of a shopping mall and a man of strong character. The plot thickens when Kasabov Sr. becomes victim of a gangland murder, and only later the viewers find out he survived and is in London, under a witness protection program. Other twists of fate, and secret love relationships change everyone's lives in the small world of the mall forever.

In the new season, the key event is the return of Kasabov Sr. and the revelation of dark secrets from the past of several characters, casting shadows even on the most perfect ones. The series will also feature a new character – Charlie (Bulgarian heartthrob, Asen Blatechki), a con with a long criminal record.

The plot involves large-scale criminal conspiracy, scams worth millions, love, murder and kidnapping.
