by Joe Rutland

“NCIS: Los Angeles” star Daniela Ruah decided to show off that she does have a sense of humor in a new behind-the-scenes snap.

Ruah, who is currently filming new episodes for the CBS police show’s 13th season, shared this snap from her Instagram account on Thursday.

She wrote along with the photo, “They say laughter is the best therapy… working with this talented beauty today ♥️. Dizem que o riso é a melhor terapia… trabalhando com esta beleza talentosa hoje ♥️.

Ruah plays Special Agent Kensi Blye and she’s been with the show since it first started on CBS in September 2009.

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Is Longest-Running Spin-Off of ‘NCIS’

“NCIS: Los Angeles” is the longest-running spinoff of the original “NCIS” that stars Mark Harmon. Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, and Ruah are among the stars of the show that has the City of Angels as its backdrop.

All of them are getting ready, as we mentioned earlier, for the 13th season to start up on CBS. Outsiders can catch “NCIS: Los Angeles” on Sundays at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central. Eric Christian Olsen, whose brother David Olsen is married to Ruah, and Linda Hunt also are expected back on the show, too.

Last season, Hunt, who plays “Hetty” Lange, had to have the scenes in which she appeared shot on the freeway of her Los Angeles area home. She was not allowed on the set because of COVID-19 precautions. As far as we know, “Hetty” will be back behind her desk and sitting in her recognizable chair.

Chris O’Donnell Has Learned About The Value of Hard Work In His Career

While he’d be the first to admit that mistakes have been made in his work and regular life, Chris O’Donnell knows the value of hard work.

“I look back and think, ‘I should’ve prepared more. I should’ve worked harder,'” O’Donnell said in an interview with CBS’s Watch! magazine. “I didn’t know any better [when I was younger]. As I got older and really worked hard, I go, ‘Man, I would’ve loved to have that chance again.’ But that’s all part of maturing.”

“NCIS: Los Angeles” has given him an opportunity to prove himself as an actor. And it’s not like he had been goofing off.

O’Donnell also understands that the show is a way people can watch and briefly escape from their troubles.

He talked about it in an interview with CBS Boston.

“I feel like we’re doing our part,” O’Donnell said. “It is escapism for people, and we all have certain things in life that…just gives us a sense of normal life.”
