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.”)
