Alex Kingston to Guest Star on NCIS

by at . Comments

Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) has been cast on NCIS.

In a November sweeps episode, the actress will play Miranda Pennebaker, a woman of questionable morals, executive producer Gary Glasberg told TV Line's Matt Webb Mitovich, who first reported the casting.

Pennebaker “deals in everything from high end weapons sales to priceless gems. Her connections go all the way up the ladder of D.C. politics, and Gibbs needs her for this very disturbing, emotional case.”

Kingston, who has also appeared on Law & Order: SVU, Private Practice and FlashForward, may even reprise the role at a later date, if Glasberg has his way. He must think pretty highly of her work this fall.

Are you excited to meet this new character?

Casting; does this mean that she is a permanent character, or has a recurring role? Hum, perhaps even another Gibbs love interest since she is a read head?

loved her in ER think she will be good

If she's flirty, then she'll likely have the hots for Gibbs, while humiliation humor for the week will be Tony striking out with Ziva and McGee smirking.

And i wonder if she'll be as flirty as River Song

Omg She really gets around. The last I saw her was River in Doctor who just recently and now going to be on NCIS! That is awesome!

NCIS Quotes

Abby: Have the bad things been outweighing the good things all these years and I just ever noticed?
McGee: What do you mean?
Abby: All I ever wanted was to help people with the truth. And I've done that, but then bad still won sometimes. And I just want to file it away, like it never happened so I can go back to being happy.
McGee: There's nothing wrong with that.
Abby: Yes there is McGee because sometimes the Cutwrights and the Dunns, they just keep fighting no matter what the truth is. And sometimes Ricki never gets to see her grandpa again. If the bad outweighs the good then that means that I'm not enough.
McGee: Abby listen to me...
Abby: And if I'm not enough, McGee, then why even try?

Abby: It's okay. Breena's fine. Breathe. Good. Now hurry up and get to the hospital because Breena is in labor.
McGee: Jimmy? Did you hear what she said? She just said Breena's having a baby. I think you broke him.
