The “NCIS: Los Angeles” actress is reflecting on her 2021 in a sweet slideshow. Check out some of Daniela Ruah’s favorite moments.

It is so fun to watch everyone’s yearly recap videos on social media. I myself made one documenting my favorite 2021 memories. In a year full of so much uncertainty, it is nice to take a look back on the happier moments.

“NCIS: Los Angeles” star Daniela Ruah is doing just this. Saturday, the actress posted an awesome slideshow documenting her year. Featuring pictures of her family, friends, and career highlights, Ruah reflects on “a year of transitions.”

“What a year of transitions…,” Ruah begins. “from home school to in-person, from isolation to some company, from not seeing loved ones to hugging my parents again, from acting to also directing… from little kids to somehow tiny teenagers 😂Happiest of New years! Wishing everyone health and safety, friendship and love.”

The “NCIS: Los Angeles” star also writes her caption in Portuguese. Fans and friends are writing their own 2021 reflections in her comments section. They also admire the sweet pictures Ruah includes.

“Happy new year Dani and family. What a topsy tervy year it was. Here’s hoping 2022 is much better for everyone on planet earth. Love and happiness from Sydney Australia,” one fan writes.

“Such an amazing compilation highlighting amazing achievements and moments in a year ❤️ wishing you all the best and happy new year,” another says.

Daniela Ruah: Thankful for Her Cast

Daniela Ruah loves her “NCIS: Los Angeles” family. From paying tribute to her friends on social media, to discussing their close bonds in interviews, the star feels thankful for her castmates.

“I think the funnest days are when everybody is there, when the whole cast is there, when we’re shooting the scenes, like in the bullpen,” she says. “The way we bond is when they’re moving the cameras around, or when we have a few minutes break when they’re doing something technical.” 

Ruah loves seeing her castmates succeed. She congratulated LL Cool J for his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last fall.

“Father, husband, friend, colleague, musician, actor, artist, philanthropic visionary, trend setter, culture marking, inspirational, the GOAT! I have so much love, respect and gratitude for you,” she writes. ♥️ Congrats on the induction to the ROCK N’ ROLL HALL OF FAME @llcoolj from the bottom of our hearts.”

The supportive nature of the “NCIS: Los Angeles” cast is truly inspiring.
