It’s almost Halloween! And the stars are already sharing their terrifying, clever, and interesting costumes on social media. NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen and his wife are getting their kids ready for trick-or-treating, too. And in an Instagram post, the couple showed off their youngest daughter dressed as an adorable cartoon character.
Last September Eric Christian Olsen and Sarah Wright Olsen welcomed their third child, Winter Story Olsen, or Winnie for short. So when it came time to think of the perfect costume for the tot, the choice was simple—Winnie the Pooh. Sarah posted a snapshot of the silly old bear on her official Instagram page. And Winnie couldn’t be any cuter.
In the photo, the little girl is donning a zip-up hoodie with tiny bear ears. It looks like she’s loving dress-up time as she smiles for the camera and sticks out her tongue. And of course, Sarah’s fans jumped into the comment section to gush over the one-year-old.
We’re not sure that the outfit is Winter’s official Halloween costume, but we hope it is. Maybe on the big day, her siblings will join the theme as Eeyore and Rabbit. And we think Eric would make a great Christopher Robin.
‘NCIS: Los Angeles’: Eric Christian Olsen’s Touching Support for His Cast Mate Has us in Tears
Eric Christian Olsen always supports his NCIS: Los Angeles co-stars’ careers and ambitions. So when Barrett Foa landed a dream gig starring in Angels in America that took him away from the series for a year, Olsen wished him well. The Marty Deeks actor definitely missed Foa while he was gone. But he was thrilled that his friend got an experience of a lifetime.
When Foa finally rejoined the cast in 2019, Olsen had some touching thoughts about Foa’s run on the stage, and he shared them with CarterMatt.com.
“Angels in America is one of my favorite plays,” Olsen said. “For him to do that deep dive on that kind of work and come back… it’s a life experience. You come back and that plays out in everything else we do. Those kinds of opportunities, and that CBS and [R. Scott Gemmill] and [John Peter Kousakis] our writers gave him the opportunity to go do that, are so human. It’s such a wonderful example of humanity.”
Olsen said that the NCIS: Los Angeles producers value their actors, and they always help them advance in their careers, even if it puts the series in a bind. But that attitude ends up making the show better.
“This is a big hit TV show that has serious restrictions and they always choose the human element. In this case, that human element was giving Barrett the opportunity to go do Angels in America. Our show is better because of it. When Barrett comes back, he carries with him that confidence. The reason that episode in San Francisco is going to be so good is because he’s bringing that to this role. It was wonderful to have him back. We missed him deeply.”
