Alex Kingston to Guest Star on NCIS

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!


She's a redhead!


Brilliant actress. Lets hope she fits the role she is to portray.


SOOO excited! this is great news!
