NCIS LA sparks frenzy as co-stars confirm new roles

The action-packed CBS drama is returning for another daring mission on Sunday night, which will see Agent Kensi Blye (played by Daniela Ruah) at the centre of the action. In her latest Instagram post, the NCIS: Los Angeles star confirmed she'll be teaming up with her long-standing NCIS partner Eric Christian Olsen to helm their very own episode.

Eric and Daniela will write and direct, respectively, the 19th episode of the current season of NCIS: Los Angeles.

Both of them took to their Instagram accounts on Friday to confirm the news with a sneak peek behind the scenes of the upcoming episode.

The snap of the stars' set chairs confirmed Eric will write while Daniela will direct the as-yet-untitled episode.

Their post prompted plenty of excitement from NCIS fans who were thrilled to see the actors will be working together behind the camera for the very first time.

Down in the comments, Eric joked: "I'm having my chair heighten by 3/4 of an inch tomorrow." [sic]

While several NCIS fans sent hundreds of messages of support to the show's dedicated co-stars.
