Executive producer Shane Brennan recently told Michael Ausiello that the character will reveal a lot about Gibbs and "unleash a wave of heartache, anger and blame in the process."

Rowlands has been nominated for two Academy Awards and was most recently seen on the small screen on an episode of Monk. She'll debut on NCIS in March.
