NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen shared the sweetest photos of his
On Thursday, December 2, Olsen shared a baby photo of his youngest child, Winter Story Olsen. He and his wife Sarah Wright share three children together including their 8-year-old son Wyatt Oliver and 5-year-old daughter Esme Olivia.
“Just putting these pics into the world for our collective daily dose of serotonin. #alittlebitofBabyJoy,” he captioned the sweet photos. Their youngest toddler is seen smiling for the camera in various snapshots.
The couple announced their daughter’s birth last year, coming in at 10 lbs. 4 oz. and 21 inches long.
“As we collectively navigate the chaos and existential crisis that is 2020, we anchor ourselves with the things that matter most. Family, friends and human connection,” Olsen told People after his daughter’s birth. “Winter Story Olsen came to us Sept 15. She’s 10 lbs., 4 oz., of newborn bliss.”
Their “giant dogs” took to their youngest right away. Now that they are a family of five their lives are “spectacular and fleeting.”
Eric Christian Olsen Loves that Barrett Foa Took a Break From ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ for ‘Angels in America’
Barrett Foa, who portrayed Eric Beale on NCIS: Los Angeles left the show last year. He revealed that he wanted to take a step back from television acting and get back into the theater. While Foa and Olsen were close work friends, he was happy for his buddy to venture off into a new project. Ironically, it was one of his favorite plays that Foa ended up signing on for.
“Angels in America is one of my favorite plays,” Olsen said in an interview with Cartermatt from 2019. “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.”
Luckily, creator R. Scott Gemmill understood that both Foa and Renee Felice Smith wanted to explore other opportunities. And luckily for the show, they left on good terms in real life and in the series. While they didn’t get killed off (and instead went to Tokyo to pursue their business venture) that leaves room for future guest appearances. It’s ironic that both the actors and their characters wanted to move on to a new venture.
While fans lost two NCIS: Los Angeles mainstays, they still have the core cast delivering its thirteenth season. Be sure to catch NCIS: Los Angeles on Sundays on CBS at 9 PM ET.
