“Hello, everyone. I’m here in beautiful, gorgeous, absolutely beautiful, and spiritual Hawaii,” Valderrama revealed. “We are excited to be here representing NCIS. We are in the middle of shooting our NCIS crossover event with NCIS: Hawai’i.

Valderamma Considers Vanessa Lachey His ‘Sister’

NCIS: Hawai’i, of course, is the latest installment in the franchise. Leading the new team in Hawaii is Special Agent Jane Tennant, who is portrayed by Vanessa Lachey. It marks the first time in NCIS history that the leading agent is a woman.

As for Valderrama, he is excited about supporting Lachey, who he considers a sister.

“I’m sharing the screen with my sister Vanessa Lachey. She is one of my favorite people and I am very, very proud to be here to support the next chapter of not only her life but this show. The extension of our NCIS family.”

The accomplished actor also reminded fans that a new episode would be airing on Monday night.

“That being said, I’m also excited to remind you that tonight there is a very special episode of NCIS. As you may have seen by some of the promos and some of the footage, Torres is going to, unfortunately, go through something very, very traumatic tonight. It may change absolutely everything you know of Torres.”

“This was a great episode!” a second fan replied. “I think it is great to see @ncis_cbs tackling the topic of mental health, even with the hot muscular guy, Nick, @wilmervalderrama, who is struggling to understand how to deal with his issues.
