There is a lot of action on NCIS, and that means there are stunt doubles ready to go at any moment. Including one for Katrina Law, who plays Jessica Knight.
Law’s stunt double is the talented Tamiko Brownlee. So, if there is something that Law is not comfortable performing on set, Brownlee is ready to go, wardrobe and all. Throughout the years on TV, there have been a number of great stunt doubles. However, Brownlee might have her work cut out for her on NCIS.
When it comes to imitating Jessica Knight’s walk, style, and all that needs to be done, Brownlee can do it. Now, when it comes to impersonating Katrina Law… that might need some work. And it isn’t the stunt woman’s fault. Check out the behind-the-scenes video that was shared on Instagram below.
“The moment your stunt double realizes they have a lot of work cut out for them. Love ya [Tamiko Brownlee],” the caption reads.
Law just about-face plants in the video. Clearly, they were trying to get a very dramatic shot that shows the two walking in lockstep. It was actually hard to tell the difference on the first watch. However, only one person would be clumsy enough. While it was a near accident, the two enjoyed a laugh looking back at the NCIS star tripping.
One fan was tickled with the video. Tere Clarkson replied, “When she just looked at you and keeps walking like she don’t give a s–t, I CAN’T!”
Thankfully, with the season returning, there are likely more of these behind-the-scenes shots coming our way.
‘NCIS’ Returns to Catch a Fugitive
Speaking of Katrina Law and her character Jessica Knight, the NCIS season returns and she plays a big role in the upcoming episode. Tonight is the first episode back in about four weeks. Fans have been dying to see the next installment, and it is finally here. Episode 10.
Someone has been selling classified data from the US Navy. It appears to be Chief Warrant Officer Rafi Nazar. However, there is always more than meets the eye. So, the team is going to have to do some digging into this one.
Based on screenshots and photos from the upcoming episode, it looks like the NCIS star is wearing the same outfit tonight that she wore in the Instagram video. Let’s just hope we don’t see Agent Knight tripping over her own two feet. If we do, at least we know Tamiko isn’t the one doing it.
Stunt doubles are so important to the industry. When it comes to a show like NCIS they are integral to the show. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be able to stand on its own two feet.
