The upcoming spin-off “NCIS: Hawai’i” is in full swing with the filming process. The main star of the series, Vanessa Lachey, has been sharing behind-the-scenes snapshots of life on Oahu.
She recently posted a photo that gives “NCIS” fans a look at what it’s really like to film the upcoming show.
Vanessa Lachey Thanks Stunt Team
In her recent Instagram post, she gave a huge shoutout to the “NCIS: Hawai’i” stunt team and what she dubbs the “water boyz.” Lachey wrote, “Safety First, Always! We get to play the bad a–es, but these are the real bad a–es! Big thanks to @davidwillno and our stunt team for making us look good …”
The photos show Lachey posing alongside stunt doubles amidst a dark night by the water in Hawaii. Lachey is standing right next to a woman named Ellette Craddock, who resembles the “NCIS: Hawai’i” star. She is likely Lachey’s stunt double for any dangerous stunts during the series.
Meanwhile, Jason Antoon also appears to be excited for his upcoming role as Ernice, the cyber intelligence specialist, on “NCIS: Hawai’i.” He posted a snapshot of some of the cast hanging out in Hawaii together. He captioned it, “Stolen from @vanessalachey stories. Hope everyone had a happy 4th.”
First Look at ‘NCIS: Hawai’i’
Fans of the “NCIS” franchise are excited to watch the upcoming “NCIS: Hawai’i” series, which is set to premiere on Monday, September 20. It will lead out “NCIS,” which has been relocated to a new day for the first time ever.
TV Line got an exclusive look into the series and behind-the-scenes photos as the show prepares for premiere day. One photo shows Vanessa Lachey in her Special Agent uniform walking alongside Enver Gjokaj (“Agent Carter.”) Gjokaj is wearing an all-white Navy uniform.
Behind the strutting “NCIS: Hawai’i” duo is a massive plane and what appears to be the Pearl Harbor base.
Gjokaj is Navy Captain Joe Milius. He is a high-ranking commander of the Pacific Fleet. He arrives in Hawaii when a very top-secret aircraft crashes into a cliff.
“When we first meet Special Agent in Charge Jane Tennant, her brilliance and compassion are on full display when, after being pulled away from coaching her daughter’s soccer team, she heads to the North Shore to lead an investigation into a top-secret Navy program. We can’t wait for viewers to get to know her and her team this September,” Executive Producers Matt Bosack, Jan Nash and Christopher Silber said to TVLine.
Her “NCIS: Hawai’i” team will include Yasmine Al-Bustami, Jason Antoon, Tori Anderson, Alex Tarrant, and Noah Mills. Vanessa Lachey also is a mother on the show. Her oldest child, Alex, is portrayed by Kian Talan.
