Here's a little extra piece of 'gossip' for all you 'NCIS: Los Angeles' fans out there. Former 'Gossip Girl' star Michelle Trachtenberg is gearing up to guest star on the popular CBS drama in an action-packed holiday episode set to air on Dec. 17.
According to a cast description, the actress will play a character named Lily — a smart and witty environmentalist/private chef who is the victim of a home invasion that “turns her life upside down.” Pretty intense, right? (Personally, I think this sounds like a job for 'Harriet the Spy.' But that's just me.)
“We’re very excited to have Michelle guest on the show,” 'NCIS: LA' showrunner Shane Brennan said in a statement. “It’s a very intense episode which pairs Michelle with Callen and Sam, in what is probably one of our biggest action shows so far this season.” And if you're famililar at all with the show, that's really saying something.
Trachtenberg's previous TV credits include runs on 'Gossip Girl,' 'Weeds,' 'Six Feet Under,' and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' as well as a memorable January 2013 episode of 'Criminal Minds.' She also starred in the TV-movie 'Killing Kennedy' this past weekend, where she played Lee Harvey Oswald’s wife.
