The former NCIS: Los Angeles star shared a behind-the-scenes glimpse at her time back on set.After a hiatus of over six months, Daniela Ruah is ready to dive back into the world of NCIS, even if it’s not NCIS: Los Angeles.
The Kensi Blye actress ended her 14-season-long tenure on the beloved show back in May, when NCIS: LA, the franchise’s first and longest-running spin-off, came to an end following its cancellation.

However, while Daniela may not be stepping back into Kensi’s role again, she still has a part in the NCIS universe, as director.Daniela took to Instagram Monday and celebrated her latest NCIS milestone: directing her very first episode for its 21st season. She had previously announced the exciting move at the top of the month, writing on Instagram: “Here we go again! So excited to be directing an episode of #NCIS and #NCISHawaii this year! Stay tuned…”


Following her first shot at the director’s chair, she shared a slew of behind-the-scenes photos featuring some of the beloved cast members, Wilmer Valderrama, Brian Dietzen, Sean Murray, and Gary Cole, among others.”Special Agent Kensi Blye was first introduced on #NCIS, or as we lovingly call it… ‘The Mothership,’” she first wrote in the caption, before adding: “Last week I wrapped my first directed episode on #NCIS in its season 21 (wow!) and I had an absolute blast.””Special Agent Kensi Blye was first introduced on #NCIS, or as we lovingly call it… ‘The Mothership,’” she first wrote in the caption, before adding: “Last week I wrapped my first directed episode on #NCIS in its season 21 (wow!) and I had an absolute blast.

“It wasn’t long before fans went wild with excitement in the comments section under post over seeing her comeback, with one fan writing: “Obsessed!! I wish you so much success. Congratulations!” as others followed suit with: “Amazing. Can’t wait to watch the episodes you directed,” and: “I also like their team and I’m happy to see you direct them! Can’t wait to see your work. So proud of you,” as well as: “It’s good to see you again. Maybe someday you will return as Kensi Blye in front of the camera. I miss you on TV.”Daniela’s NCIS episode will air in March, while her NCIS: Hawai’i episode will air in April. She told Deadline earlier this month: “Kensi was born as a character on NCIS, 15 years ago, so now to be able to step onto that set again, as a director, with that incredible cast and crew, is an absolute honor.”So many familiar faces and people I love and they’ve welcomed me with open arms. It’s like coming home.”
