When this Latina looker joined the cast of NCIS at the start of its third season, she made quite a first impression as a multilingual Israeli super agent, capable of killing her own kin if necessary. But in real life, the Chile-born/Miami-raised De Pablo is a much more light-hearted lady, who cohosted the Spanish-language talk show Control as a teen and studied musical theater at Carnegie Mellon University. She appeared on stage and in the soap All My Children before landing her first series gig on the short-lived courtroom drama The Jury. After a brief stint in the musical The Mambo Kings on the West Coast, she snagged her signature NCIS role, for which she won a 2006 Imagen Foundation Award and was nominated for ALMA Awards in 2008 and 2009.Cote De Pablo Fast Facts:
