EMILY WICKERSHAM JOINS THE TEAM, ON “NCIS

 

 

 

LOS ANGELES — Nov. 4, 2013 — Emily Wickersham joins the team on NCIS as a series regular beginning Tuesday, Nov. 19.  She plays NSA Analyst Eleanor “Ellie” Bishop, a mysterious mixture of analytic brilliance, fierce determination and idealism who specializes in international threat assessment and global preparation.

 

“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 character, Ellie Bishop, will be introduced when it is 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.

 

Wickersham’s film credits include “Gone,” “I am Number Four” and “Remember Me.”  Her television credits include “The Sopranos,” “The Bridge” and “Gossip Girl.”

 

The 11th season of NCIS is broadcast Tuesdays, 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT on the CBS Television Network.

    Love that they include Gossip Girl as one of her main credits when she was in 1 ep and her character wasn’t even named.

    Congratulations Emily! I’m as excited as your new family, the cast & crew of “NCIS” to have you join us.
    Welcome aboard.

    Never heard of the actress, but I wouldn’t mind her as a character. I just hope that she isn’t a Ziva clone or Kate clone for that matter. Be a different character and a good replacement.

    I think people will like her.

    Wait, are they crossing over with the Fringe universe now?

    Haven’t heard of her, but I hope she does justice to the role of the actress that preceded her.
