One year after making her NCIS: Los Angeles debut, Medalion Rahimi has been promoted to series regular status on the high-octane CBS drama, where she plays Special Agent Fatima Namazi. Our sister site Deadline first reported on the upgrade.
Rahimi made her NCIS: LA debut a little over a year ago, in the first half of a two-parter involving the team’s hunt for a terrorist cell believed to be prepping for an imminent attack. She has appeared eight times since then, most recently in the Nov. 10 episode, in which the team crashed a videogame streamer’s party to solve the theft of an undersea drone.
She will next appear in the March 1 episode.
The Los Angeles-born actress’ previous TV credits include ABC’s short-lived Still Star-Crossed, The Catch and, yes, episodes of both NCIS and NCIS: New Orleans (though playing different characters).
NCIS: Los Angeles resumes Season 11 on Sunday, Feb. 16, with an episode in which the team investigates the murder of a Naval warfare engineer at a spoken poetry event ,while Callen asks Nell to assist him in a worldwide search for Anna Kolchek’s whereabouts.
