As the new kid on the block on NCIS, Ellie Bishop is starting to find her footing with her new job assignment and colleagues — and the same can be said for Emily Wickersham, who portrays the quirky NSA agent.
"I love her awkwardness, and I love how smart she is," Wickersham tells TVGuide.com about her character. "She totally lacks self-awareness, because she's so wrapped up in her own thoughts that she's kind of absent-minded. She's so used to working by herself and thinking things through in her head alone. And so socially, I think sometimes that can kind of come off in an odd way, but it's just that this is how she works."

Mark Harmon and Emily Wickersham
Emily Wickersham made her much-anticipated debut on NCIS Tuesday. In the episode, her character, NSA analyst Ellie Bishop, is brought on board to help out the team after the Secretary of the Navy Sarah Porter (Leslie Hope) discovers she's been bugged. The device that's been planted in her pen has been recording her communications (including a confidential briefing) for about 30 hours, and Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and Tony (Michael Weatherly) turn to Bishop for help with the case when they learn she authored a paper two years prior that outlines an almost identical scenario.
This week's episode of NCIS (8/7c, CBS) introduces Ellie Bishop (Emily Wickersham), the character who's been brought in to replace Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), who departed the series earlier this season. But showrunner Gary Glasberg wants longtime fans to rest assured that the show won't be changing that much, despite the presence of a new kid on the block.
"At the end of the day, it's not so much about reinventing or doing anything that different," Glasberg tells TVGuide.com. "NCIS is still NCIS. All of the dynamics are there. ... The vibe of the show is the same, the chemistry is the same, the tone is the same. It's just that we've got this new character and she brings something new to the party."
