NCIS: New Orleans will have a new series regular this fall. CBS announced earlier this week that Vanessa Ferlito, who formerly played Aiden Burn on CSI: New York, will join the cast of NCIS: NOLA for season three. Ferlito will play FBI Special Agent Garlan, a “by-the-book bureaucrat” who returns to New Orleans after a decade in Washington, DC. Described as “sexy, tough, [and] acerbic,” Garlan does things her own way. The FBI hopes her familiarity with New Orleans will help her investigate the NCIS team following the events of season two.
Agent Garlan will be introduced during the season three premiere, which will air on Tuesday, September 20 at 10:00pm ET/PT. “We’re beyond excited to have Vanessa join our show and look forward to adding her distinctive personality and edge to our amazing NCIS: New Orleans cast,” said Executive Producer Brad Kern.
