NCIS: Los Angeles star Eric Christian Olsen loves to show off his kids. And in his latest snap, we’re thinking daughter Esme has her Halloween costume figured out.
Or maybe, she’s a huge fan of The Mandalorian on Disney+ and loves posing in her best sci-fi bounty hunter costume.
The NCIS: Los Angeles star captioned the photo: “She is the future. #mandalorian.”
Daddy Olsen is getting ready for the season 13 premiere of NCIS: Los Angeles. Obviously. he’s hoping for a lucky season for his character, Deeks, and wife Kensi, who is played by real-life sister-in-law Danielle Ruah.
The opening episode, called Subject 17, premieres Sunday. The episode appears to be centered on Chris O’Donnell’s character, G Callen. But according to the synopsis provided by CBS, there will be a Deeks/Kensi side story.
“While Callen suspects Hetty of keeping secrets about his past and Joelle surfaces in her quest to capture Katya, NCIS must track down an informant whose life is in danger. Also, Kensi and Deeks work to expand their family.”
On NCIS: Los Angeles Deeks/Kensi Have Filled Out Adoption Applications
Olsen and his wife, Sarah, have three children. Ruah and her husband have two. But as a TV couple, Deeks and Kensi have had problems getting pregnant. Plus, it’s difficult to raise a child with such a super-intense, dangerous job. However, we know it can happen in the NCIS world. NCIS: Hawaii’s lead is Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey) who is raising two teenagers as a single mom.
The family storyline continues into the second episode of this season’s NCIS: Los Angeles.
“They just want a little kid to love,” Ruah told TV Insider of Kensi and Deeks. The two also have started the adoption process. Race doesn’t matter.
“Kensi and Deeks ticked the box that race wasn’t an issue but didn’t think what that might entail,” Ruah says of the adoption application. “You want this child to relate to their natural-born culture and fit in.”
This NCIS: Los Angeles episode is called Fukushu. The agents investigate a hate crime involving the father of an LAPD officer. The family is Japanese American.
Ruah said producers researched adoption for the storylines by talking to specialists who would give them real details, real stories.
“I know how much joy and fulfillment having children has brought my life,” Ruah said. “Kensi’s seen the most ugly, terrible criminals … (they) just want love and positivity in their home life.”
So maybe producers also can draw on the family lives of Olsen for some NCIS: Los Angeles plots about kids. He’s the dad of son Wyatt, the oldest. Then there’s daughter, Esme, who looks so cute in her Mandalorian costume. Daughter Winter is the baby. She just turned one last month.
