This should make the Tiva fans go nuts.
Stephanie Jacobsen has landed a potentially recurring role on NCIS, EW has learned exclusively.
The Revenge and Melrose Place alum will play FBI Special Agent Leia Pendergast, who is partnered with Agent DiNozzo for a case involving an international terrorist threat targeting Navy researchers.
Could she be a new love interest for DiNozzo? The description of her character seems to imply as much: “Armed but feminine, sexy and single, cool and confident. A former U.S. Marshal-turned FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force leader, she is flirtatious and adventurous with a sense of humor. Leia is a straight shooter, brash when she needs to be. She isn’t afraid to knock down doors or egos.”
NCIS returns Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Jacobsen will first appear in an episode slated for October.
