NCIS adds Sarah Clarke as new FBI agent

Posted on

CBS

NCIS has tapped Sarah Clarke to guest-star in the final two episodes of the season, with an option to become a series regular next season, EW has learned.

The 24 and Twilight star will play Tess Monroe, an FBI Special Agent who recently transferred to D.C. from New York City. Quick-witted, tough, and shrewd, Tess is a multiple divorcée who’s as sexy as she is strong, Tess has no kids, so she views her fellow agents as family. Beneath a no-nonsense shell, Tess has a big heart and believes in honor, justice, and doing what’s right — and she’ll fight to protect those values, and her team, with fierce determination and a tinge of sarcasm along the way.

“We feel so fortunate to have Sarah Clarke joining us to play Tess,” says executive producer Gary Glasberg. “I’ve been a fan of her’s going back to 24 and more recently Bosch. She’s a gifted actress, a total pro, and we can’t wait to introduce her to our NCIS family and have some fun.”

Clarke’s introduction comes as Michael Weatherly is slated to exit the long-running procedural, which is reportedly also planning to cast a male agent to join the team.

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
