Fans of CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles, the defunct action-adventure series Legend of the Seeker and/or its star can file the following under “Innnteresting”: The hit procedural is keeping Bridget Regan’s guest-starring role under wraps, despite my best efforts to procure some intel.
Speaking with the usually freely teasing Shane Brennan on Wednesday night — and after only being able to get Regan’s guest gig confirmed — I asked the NCIS: LA boss to shed some light on who the brunette beauty is playing.
“I… I might hold back on that,” Brennan responded, carefully. “Only because if I get into that character, it might reveal something.”
During our full fall preview conversation, Brennan repeatedly mentioned that the first four episodes of NCIS: LA‘s new season — the first of which, TVLine just scooped, plays out in real time — will revolve around the immediate aftermath of the season finale, including Hetty’s fate and Callen’s true identity. So, can we at least assume that Regan appears somewhere during that stretch?
“She is… somewhere… in the early episodes,” Brennan allowed.
Picking up on Brennan’s staunch determination to keep Regan’s role under wraps — her character’s identity must truly be some manner of spoiler — I asked if Seeker fans might at least watch for the actress to kick some ass on the CBS crime drama, as she often did as Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell.
“They’ll got a lot of satisfaction from what she does [on NCIS: LA],” Brennan answered. “And they’ll just have to watch to see if she gets to kick ass!”
