Vanessa Lachey Opens Up Taking on the Lead Role in ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’

During a recent interview with Modern Luxury Angeleno, Vanessa Lachey spoke about taking on the leading lady role on NCIS: Hawai’i. “This means so much for so many reasons. Not just  for me personally, but for what it means and stands for.”

The NCIS: Hawai’i star said taking on the role is an incredible opportunity for the Asian American Pacific Islander community and for women in general. “It is an honor that I think of daily. I have an opportunity to show how capable, willing, eager, and equal we are. I am proud of my heritage now more than ever.”

Lachey then noted she hopes the next generation can be proud of who they are too, no matter their background or place of origin. “I can’t thank CBS and the NCIS franchise enough for this opportunity—specifically, Jan Nash, Chris Silber, Matt Bosack, and Larry Teng for believing in me and entrusting me with this role and everything that comes with it. I constantly tell them, ‘I won’t let you down.’”

Lachey also explained that her experience as an Air Force brat actually helps her with the action-packed role. “That’s military lingo for a child of a parent serving in the United States armed forces, whether current or former. So, the military and love for our freedom runs through me. I live through the sacrifices my father gave for our country and I am proud.”

In regards to what fans can expect from the first season of NCIS: Hawai’i, Lachey said absolutely everything. “There is action, love, mystery and island beauty. Most importantly I want to honor our military and express gratitude for their constant sacrifice.”
