Scoop: Claire Forlani Makes ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Encore

Posted on August 4, 2011


After appearing at the tail-end of NCIS: Los Angeles‘ sophomore season, Claire Forlani will be returning this season in a larger capacity.

Forlani first appeared as new Operations Manager Lauren Hunter in last season’s penultimate episode titled “Imposters,” following up with an appearance in the finale “Familia.” Now, sources with the show tell me that the former CSI: NY beauty will be back this season for multiple episodes, including the premiere.

News of the casting back in April cast doubt on original Operations Manager Hetty’s (Linda Hunt) future on the show. No need to panic, though, as she will be back.

NCIS: Los Angeles‘ season two premiere airs September 20th on CBS.
