In the Season 16 premiere episode of NCIS, “Destiny’s Child,” one month has passed since Director Vance (Rocky Carroll) has been kidnapped. In his absence, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) has been named acting director while the team continues to search for his whereabouts. Along the way, special agents Nick Torres (Wilmer Valderrama) and Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) meet lava lamp loving Emma Thatcher.
Emma Thatcher is portrayed by Lauran September. The former improv comedian (Second City, The Groundlings) is known for her roles on Sharp Objects opposite Amy Adams(Angie), Casual (Chef Amy), and Masters of Sex opposite Michael Sheen (Emily Hopkins), among others. NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8pm on CBS, right before the new crime drama FBI.
