Mark did a wonderful interview with TVGuideMagazine.Com and there are some great comments/insights on Cote and NCIS.
Cote was the last principal squad member to come on board. It’s been a number of years, but is she still kind of the probie?
[laughs] She’s never been a probie. When you talk to her, you’ll see that. There’s nobody like her. How do you define that moment on this show? She came in the back door. There was another gal there [in the running for the role], and Michael Weatherly did a test with her, and the other girl. And Michael went off script, and Cote thought it was just totally unprofessional and just backed him up right in the middle of the take. And that’s what they wanted to see. They wanted to see someone that would back up DiNozzo. She loves the job and can’t wait to get here in the morning. Here we are in year 7 with this really terrific mix. That’s what I would say to people in the summertime, when they’d say “What about Ziva?” [As in, will she leave the show?] I’d say, “No one is stupid. It took too long to get this group together.”
The whole interview is a great read, check it out here!
Also, NCIS Music is running a contest to win sound track poster hand-signed by the cast of NCIS:Mark Harmon, Michael Weatherly, Cote de Pablo, Pauley Perrette, David McCallum, Sean Murray and Rocky Carroll.
