CSI: Miami has cast Natasha Henstridge in a potentially recurring role, and she will make her first appearance during the season nine finale. (Spoilers after the jump!)
The finale will introduce Henstridge as undercover agent Renee Locklear. “We meet her in the course of searching for this missing fugitive and she [initially] appears as another possible witness, maybe a possible suspect,” co-executive producer Barry O’Brien told TV Guide. “We bring her in for an interrogation and she reveals that she’s actually an undercover agent for the Secret Service.”
Sparks fly between Renee and leading man Horatio Caine (David Caruso). The character will also appear in the season ten premiere, and O’Brien hopes Henstridge will be able to return to Miami on a recurring basis throughout season ten. “It’s a relationship we’d like to pursue,” he explained. “She’s beautiful and she looks great with David. It’s a pretty exciting relationship for us.”
