Alright, NCIS: Hawai’i fans — it’s time to celebrate once again. We have another cast member on the show that has a November birthday.
That’s right — it’s Vanessa Lachey’s birthday today. Vannessa Lachey (formerly Vanessa Minnillo) was born on November 9, 1980, in the Philippines. Her family moved around quite often growing up due to her father’s service in the U.S. Air Force. She lived all over the world as a little girl, including Washington, California, Nevada, Florida, Germany, and Japan. And at one point in her childhood, she attended eight different schools in nine years. In her teens, Vanessa was crowned Miss South Carolina Teen USA. After that, she went on to win the title of Miss Teen USA in 1998.
Vanessa Lachey’s professional career has been just as impressive. She was a host on MTV’s The Morning After and Total Request Live and after that, she became a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight. In the years since, Vanessa has launched her own makeup line, had guest-starring roles in various movies and television shows, and even had a stint on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
Nowadays, however, Vanessa Lachey is on to a new part of her career. She is a series regular on the CBS police procedural TV series NCIS: Hawai’i. She joined the cast in her first leading series role to play the character of Jane Tennant. Tennant is the first female Special Agent in charge of the NCIS: Pearl. The groundbreaking show, of course, is a spin-off of the long-running series NCIS. Overall, it is the fourth series in the entire NCIS franchise.
