Thesp to play idealist NSA analyst on the enduring CBS drama
“NCIS” is adding another femme to the team as of Nov. 19 when Emily Wickersham joins Team Gibbs as a series regular.
Wickersham will play NSA analyst Eleanor Bishop, an idealistic and determined specialist in international threat assessment and preparation, on the CBS TV Studios drama.
“Emily Wickersham’s Ellie Bishop is proving to perfectly compliment the NCIS team,” said “NCIS” exec 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 past TV credits include “The Bridge,” “Gossip Girl” and “The Sopranos.” She’s also been seen in such films as “Gone,” “I Am Number 4” and “Remember Me.”
In its eleventh season, the Mark Harmon-toplined “NCIS” remains one of CBS’ highest-rated skeins.
