Marina Sirtis Lands Role on ‘NCIS’

Marina Sirtis, who played Deanna Troi for seven seasons on Star Trek: The Next Generation along with four feature films, has landed a role on the CBS procedural drama NCIS.

Sirtis’ character, Orli Elbaz, will take over the Israeli intelligence organization Mossad, following the death of Ziva’s father Eli David (Michael Nouri).

“The search to replace Eli David as Mossad Director was tricky for us, but we ended up with a true find in Marina Sirtis,” said NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg on casting Sirtis. “I’ve always been a Star Trek fan, but Marina really owns this part. And the cast loves her. She’s everything I wanted for the role and then some. We are lucky to have her.”

According to TVLine, the first episode with Sirtis will air sometime in April.

NCIS, now in it’s 10th season, airs Tuesdays at 8/7c.
