As first reported by TV Line, NCIS has found a replacement for Shiva’s father as Mossad Director. Eli David’s character played by Michael Nouri will be replaced by Star Trek: TNG alum Marina Sirtis.
EP Gary Glasberg on his thoughts for enlisting the Star Trek actress –
“The search to replace Eli David as Mossad Director was tricky for us, but we ended up with a true find in Marina Sirtis. I’ve always been a Star Trek fan, but Marina really owns this part. And the cast loves her. She’s everything I wanted for the role and then some. We are lucky to have her.”
NCIS airs every Tuesday on CBS.
