Fall TV Preview

NCIS: Los Angeles Scoop: Kensi Makes Nice With a Suburgatory Mean Girl?

The never-dull life of NCIS: Los Angeles Agent Kensi Blye (played by Daniela Ruah) this season will be shaken up a bit by the introduction of a young woman.

TVLine has learned that Abbie Cobb, who has had recurring roles on Suburgatory (playing Dalia’s gal pal Kimantha) and The Secret Life of the American Teenager (starting this week as Francine), has landed a potentially recurring role in Season 4 of the CBS procedural.

“In Episode 3, there’s a character who’s introduced called Astrid — and we may well be seeing more of her in the future,” series boss Shane Brennan tells TVLine. “There’s a relationship [between Astrid and Kensi] that forms out of that episode.”

(In speaking with us, Brennan also shared an update on our Sunday morning story, noting that the mothers of not two but four cast members — Ruah, Chris O’Donnell, Eric Christian Olsen and LL Cool J — will guest-star in a Season 4 episode, playing ladies at a casino.)

Cobb’s TV credits also include recent episodes of Longmire and True Blood, plus a Season 3 run on 90210.

Season 4 of NCIS: LA premieres Tuesday, Sept. 25. How do you think Astrid might figure into Kensi’s life? (Cobb herself seemed to hint via Twitter that she’s playing a “damsel in distress.”)

  • Finally a more prominent role for Abbie. I liked what she did with the role on “90210″, and she was absolutely great in last week’s “Longmire”. I always felt she was wasted in that bit part role on “Suburgatory”.

  • By “relationship” are we talking Platonic? Or is this a Kensi comes out kind of thing?
    To quote Jerry Seinfeld “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”

  • In the episode the watchers kensi was seen with a guy not deeks before she was called in, so I’m pretty sure it’s not for comming out.

  • A novel for Callen?

    Only I think this could be? Only Callen have no one. This girl could be a romantic interest for Callen.

  • Maybe she is Kensi’s new nemesis. Callen had the Chameleon Sam has the guy form Sudan it seems fair Kensi should get her own villian

    • but it mentioned a “relationship”? i wonder what kind it could potentially become

  • I think they mean like maybe friends, cousins or sisters not that she’s gay! She’s obviously in love with deeks :)

  • Maybe she is Kensi half-sister, I mean her mother could have had more children after she left Kensi and her father.

  • Perhaps, Astrid is a teenager/young woman that Kensi takes under her wing, fosters, ala Sam and Mo. Or,.perhaps, Astrid is a student in a self defense class that Kensi teaches. Maybe, she’s the sister/relative of Kensi’s ex-fiancée, and Astrid seeks Kensi out (not seeing her since she was a child or tween), because she’s in trouble. Or maybe she’s related to Renko and seeks Kensi out for information on his death. Maybe she’s a neighbour. Maybe she’s a child that Kensi had when she was a teenager, after her father’s death, and placed up for adoption. The possibilities are endless. I look forward to finding out more about the new character. But I got to say that Astrid had better stay away from Deeks, unless it makes Kensi realize that she wants their thing to become a thing.

  • Or maybe, Astrid is the daughter of Kensi’s father. That would be a twist.

  • I hope that she’s related to Kensi some how, like maybe a long lost sister or even related to her ex, tht would be awesome
