In the NCIS: New Orleans Season 3 premiere episode ‘Aftershocks,’ while the NCIS team tries to track down a sniper targeting crowded areas in the city, they discover that D.C. has sent an FBI special agent to investigate Dwayne Pride (Scott Bakula) and the team. The agent, Tammy Gregorio, “kind of just creeps up on them and throws herself right into their world,” says Vanessa Ferlito who plays Gregorio.
Vanessa Ferlito is known for her roles on Graceland (Catherine “Charlie” DeMarco), CSI: NY (Aiden Burn), and 24 (Claudia Hernandez), among others. Ferlito is also recognized for her roles in the films Julie & Julia (Cassie), Madea Goes to Jail (Donna), Lee Daniel’s Shadowboxer (Vicki), Spider-Man 2 (Louise), and Spike Lee’s 25th Hour (Lindsay Jamison). The 35-year-old Brooklyn native is also a single mom. Her son Vince turns 9 in September. NCIS: New Orleans airs Tuesdays at 10pm on CBS.
