Emily Wickersham Joins the NCIS CastCBS’ popular NCIS has a new series regular as of November 19, 2013. Emily Wickersham will be playing NSA Analyst Eleanor ‘Ellie’ Bishop on the show which stars Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, and David McCallum.
Per CBS, Wickersham’s Ellie is “a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation.” She’ll be introduced after it’s discovered the Secretary of the Navy “was bugged during a confidential briefing, a security breach Bishop described in exact detail two years ago in a threat analysis report. Working side-by-side with Gibbs and the team, Bishop cross-examines the case file to help determine who is behind the crime.”
“Emily Wickersham’s Ellie Bishop is proving to perfectly compliment the NCIS team,” said Executive Producer Gary Glasberg. “Her energy and enthusiasm is contagious. Great things are planned for Bishop and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on board.”
Wickersham’s TV credits include The Sopranos, The Bridge, and Gossip Girl.
