The NCIS: Los Angeles team is dealing with quite a bit of change in Season 12, both professionally and personally.

Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) are looking to the future, trying to have kids while he’s also figuring out his career (his liaison position has been terminated permanently, and becoming an NCIS agent at his age isn’t possible for the LAPD detective). Analyst Nell (Renée Felice Smith), who wasn’t even sure if she wanted to keep working at the agency, is filling in for the MIA operations manager Hetty (Linda Hunt). Eric (Barrett Foa) is off doing his own thing. And the younger generation of agents has come in: Fatima (Medalion Rahimi) and Rountree (Caleb Castille).

Here, Ruah discusses those changes and making her directorial debut (Episode 11) later this season.


Ron Jaffe/CBS
Both Hetty and Eric are off doing things that we’ve only heard about vaguely. Who’s going to return first, and whose work will we learn more about first?

Daniela Ruah: Those are pretty elusive characters this season. Hetty is doing Hetty stuff, still pulling strings at a distance. And then Mr. Eric Beale, last season, he was up in San Francisco developing some technology [and] all of that went bust, but the technology he developed did not. So he’s now a multi-million-dollar major tech developer, our little ol’ Eric Beale, and shows up with a mustache! We’re just like, “Who is this guy who’s been transformed?” He’ll be present but working on his own stuff.

And you’re directing this season. What made now the right time?

Even though this is when it’s happening, this has actually been in the making for a year and a half, [from] the time that I realized this is something I really wanted to do. It is a passion that has grown from opportunity versus, “oh, I always wanted to direct.” It wasn’t that. I realized that I was wasting a wonderful opportunity by not directing.

Because essentially being in a production like this, that works so efficiently and has such a tight-knit family, if I’m ever going to try this for the first time, it has to be here because I know the characters, I know everybody’s names, I know what everybody does. All those things that you have to learn in a classroom and then try to apply it to real life, I’ve been living in a classroom, in film school for 12 years. All I had to do was start listening and start watching and paying attention to things that were outside of my job description. And all of a sudden I realized how organic everything felt to me.

Obviously it’s not uncommon. I’m not unique. There are a lot of actors that jump into directing, editors, script supervisors, DPs, first ADs, camera operators. Chris O’Donnell has directed before on our show. A couple of our producers have directed. This is a very safe space and I’m not dealing with potential egos because I’m dealing with family and we’re all super open, and if I have a terrible idea, someone’s going to be honest with me about it. And if somebody starts to introduce an idea that is not something I’m too happy with, I’m perfectly comfortable telling them that. If I’m going to do this for the first time, it has to be here. I met my husband, got married, have two kids, bought my first house, and dammit, I’m going to direct my first episode.

Are you interested in also writing? Eric Christian Olsen has.

No, no, no. Zero passion, zero interest, zero skill, zero talent for it. I think we need to be realistic about limitations. I think I have the capability to learn and become a great director, and this is not ego talking. Obviously I’m going to make a lot of mistakes. But I think that I’m capable of eventually becoming a good director. But I can tell you right now that I do not have potential of becoming any eventual anything when it comes to writing. I’m going to leave that to Eric because he is in fact one of the most talented people in words in general. All you gotta do is read his captions on Instagram. Oh, that’s Nobel Prize-winning writing right there.

[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 12, Episode 5 of NCIS: Los Angeles, “Raising the Dead.”]

By Meredith Jacobs
Read the full interview HERE

The second of the December 6 double helping of NCIS: LA is one of the best episodes of the series — and the most terrifying one since Season 9’s “The Monster.” That makes sense since both were written by Frank Military, who also guest stars in “Raising the Dead” as David Kessler, who so badly wants to haunt Kensi Blye’s (Daniela Ruah, who delivers one of her best performances of the series) nightmares.

The agent must speak with the man she helped put away prior to joining the Office of Special Projects (among his crimes: human trafficking of minors) because he knows where a man who wants to kill the president is and will only tell her. Among his chilling words during the Hannibal-esque conversations is a promise to hunt her down, have sex with her, and kill her when he escapes, “maybe not in that order.”


Ron Jaffe/CBS

He shares what he knows only after a secret phone call with the president(!). “You’ll never get me out of your head now,” Kessler promises as Kensi leaves. He may be right because that call also results in his release, by presidential executive order, for undisclosed national security issues. And he’s not alone: his girlfriend, Michelle (Izabella Miko), is with him after fooling Callen (Chris O’Donnell) into thinking she was terrified of him.

Meanwhile, Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) finds out that not only has his liaison position with NCIS been terminated permanently, but the agency never takes people his age — and there’s nothing Hetty (Linda Hunt), from an undisclosed location, or Nell (Renée Felice Smith), filling in for her, can do.

Here, Ruah breaks down “Raising the Dead,” “Densi” this season, and more.

How soon are we going to revisit Kessler? Will he return or will we see more of the psychological first, with him in Kensi’s head like he said he’d be?

Daniela Ruah: We haven’t shot any episodes where he comes back, but I know for a fact this is one of those seeds that gets planted, as NCIS: LA tends to do, where later on when you least expect it, it just blows up in your face. It surprises the audience.

In the [December 13] episode, there’s obviously a concern from Deeks — “You shouldn’t be doing this, Kessler’s still out there” — but Kensi seems to be a little bit less concerned than he is. She’s dealt with this guy. She definitely knows how dangerous he is [and] what he’s capable of. But her mentality is, “I’ve caught you once, I can catch you again.” She’s too smart, too mature.
Even during this episode, she definitely shows some cracks as he’s trying to manipulate — he keeps knifing, right? He’s trying to look for that weak spot until he finds one, when he talks about her inability to have children — but she’s a mission-first woman. “I’m not going to let this guy break me. I need to find this other guy before he tries to kill the president.”

I think he’s going to come back in the future to haunt them, but for now, we’ve gone on with our lives.
