NCIS: New Orleans is back, running full steam ahead with the second half of Season 6. The satellite team has not had a second to stop and breathe since fan-favorite, Christopher LaSalle (Lucas Black) departed from the show. With that said, the latest episode introduced Dr. Loretta Wade’s (CCH Pounder) new intern.
This intern is rubbing Special Agent Tammy Gregorio (Vanessa Ferlito) the wrong way, so we want to know who plays her and what else has she been in.
In the episode that aired on March 1, “The Root of All Evil“, fans saw Dwayne Pride’s (Scott Bakula) team investigating the death of a JAG captain. The captain was discovered in his home by his daughter, the only heir to his entire estate. We smell a rat.
After an hour of investigations and another murder, it is unclear if the captain’s daughter is innocent or if she’s the mastermind behind it all. Meanwhile, the resident nerd, Sebastian Lund (Rob Kerkovich) starts his REACT training as the team leader to new recruits.
With all of this going on, Dr. Wade introduced her new intern, a woman named Heather Daniels. Daniels and Gregorio did not hit it off, and while she might be a potential love interest for Gregorio, some think that the know-it-all assistant may be there for the wrong reasons.
“I get a bad feeling she’s in Loretta’s lab for a reason. It would be just like Gregorio’s luck though to start liking her just in time for her to do something terrible. I can totally see her with someone younger though since she tends to have…,” one fan tweeted.
Another fan commiserated saying, “Oooh! That’s a thought!! That Heather is there for some shady reasons…But, good ol’ Gregorio. You’re right about her mothering everyone. I thought she told Hannah that it would be nice if she could find someone, but that she wasn’t looking right now, either. #NCISNOLA.”
At this point, nobody knows Heather’s motives, or if she and Gregorio will become an “it” couple on the show. Regardless, fans are vigilantly watching out for the characters on their show.
Fans reactions to Heather Daniels, the intern that Clara Wong plays… it’s pretty obvious, the character is not at the top of anyone’s fav. list.
I hate the intern!
Don’t like the intern
The intern is obnoxious
This does not seem to be in reference to Clara Wong’s acting skills, but purely the character that she is playing. Hopefully the fans disinterest/dislike of her character won’t get Wong removed from the show.
It’s always good to have a little bit of conflict surrounding a character, after all.
The fan consensus is that Heather Daniels does not have many fans. She’s played by a newcomer on-set, a woman named Clara Wong.
Her social media profiles say: “Actor, animal enthusiast, people-watcher, Oxford comma user, and student of life.” Her website is pretty lacking, only presenting video clips of previous roles and a contact form. On her Twitter she did note that she never knows what to say on social media, which does explain some of the lack of info.
Her acting credits go back to 2013, but she’s since appeared in projects like: Kouis, Bull, Billions and more.
At this time there are no additional NCIS: New Orleans credits listed on her IMDb, but her role appeared to be something that would continue.
Not very active on the Tweeter, but maybe I oughta be. Because right now, it exists purely as a platform to save television shows I love. I'm sorry. I'll try to think of more things to say. #SaveLodge49 #SaveTheTick
