by Anna Dunn

NCIS: Hawai’i just wished a very happy birthday to Katie Whistler actress Tori Anderson. The show, which is the newest spinoff of CBS’s hit procedural NCIS, has had a solid first season so far. And Tori Anderson’s Whistler is a definite fan favorite.

Whistler is a stern and ambitious DIA agent. She’s also currently seeing Tara, who may just be her polar opposite, but the two seem to really make it work. Whistler is a tough nut to crack, but in a new tweet, the official account for NCIS: Hawai’i says that’s not the case for actress Tori Anderson.

Fans were quick to respond to the tweet asking for birthday wishes.

“Happy Birthday @torianderson wishing you another wonderful year of happiness and joy!!” one fan wrote.

“Happy Birthday, dear @torianderson we love you so much and wishing a wonderful year. Blessed be,” another fan replied.

Anderson stars in NCIS: Hawai’i alongside Vanessa Lachey, Yasmine Al Bustami, Jason Antoon, and Alex Tarrant.

The ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’ Cast Recently Shared Some Gratitude

Anderson’s birthday happens to fall during the Holiday season, and the cast recently shared what they’re grateful for as 2021 comes to a close. When discussing what they’ve loved most about filming on the Island, Tori Anderson described the wonderful wildlife.

“So far the best thing has been the sea turtles, and the chickens, and the rain,” Anderson said, “So all of those three things, and the cast. And the crew… I’ll put the people in there too.”

Other members of the cast expressed similar sentiments, saying how grateful they are to work with such an amazing team in such an amazing place. Many have had to move down there, at least part time, to shoot for the show.

Jane Tennant actress Vanessa Lachey actually moved her whole family to the island in order to be a part of the show. Thankfully, they all seem to love it. Her husband, Nick Lachey, whose also in the entertainment industry, has been very supportive of the new endeavor. The two also recently shared a birthday, which NCIS: Hawai’i also celebrated.

NCIS: Hawai’i is currently on a winter hiatus but will return on Monday, January 3rd at 10/9 central following an all-new episode of NCIS. The last episode, which aired earlier this month, followed the team trying to solve a decades-old mystery before a Pearl Harbor Memorial.
