To be fair, Melinda McGraw is not the only actress to have portrayed Diane Sterling. McGraw has had an extensive acting career thanks to her range of acting abilities.
No matter the genre, McGraw can take on the role. She played Barbara Gordon in Christopher Nolan’s epic superhero film “The Dark Knight” and starred in the spoof film “Wrongfully Accused”. In more recent days, McGraw has joined the cast of “Paul T. Goldman”, the revamp of “Charmed”, and “The Crossing”. Interestingly, she also joined “NCIS: New Orleans” but not as Diane Sterling.
Duane Henry – Clayton Reeves
It might seem a bit odd that someone who studied at Dudley College of Technology would go on to become an actor, but interestingly, Duane Henry studied drama at this college. Born in Birmingham, England, Henry spent the first two-thirds of his life in the United Kingdom.
One of his major roles during this period was as Rory Andrews in “The Cut” which earned him a BAFTA nomination. On leaving “NCIS”, Henry was featured in films such as “Captain Marvel” and the Hallmark movie “A Gingerbread Romance”.
We have to admit that Special Agent Leroy Gibbs has not had the easiest romantic life, but maybe it is just something that comes with the territory of being an NCIS agent. To be fair, Gibbs was not the only one who married Diane Sterling. Before ex-FBI operative Tobias TC Fornell married and divorced her, Diane Sterling was married to Gibbs.
The couple divorced and she later had a child, Emily, with Tobias. Sterling was also a former investigator as she worked with the criminal division of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Following her parents’ divorce, Jessica Knight remained close to her father so much so that she followed in his footsteps to become an NCIS agent.
Originally, Knight was assigned to the React Unit team. However, as the story unfolded, three of her team members were killed and one was arrested, causing Knight to join the Major Case Response Team. Once Ellie Bishop had left, it was up to Knight to fill her shoes and she has stuck with the team ever since.
Katrina Law – Jessica Knight
Growing up, this actress dabbled in a little bit of everything – from weightlifting to soccer to dancing and cheerleading, she did it all. Now, Katrina Law is an actress who has many acting credentials to her name and a promising future ahead of her. Law was born to a father of German and Italian descent and a Taiwanese mother.
While she has just recently joined the cast of “NCIS”, she was featured in “Arrow”, “Spartacus”, and “Hawaii Five-O”. Currently, the actress has one child and is married to the actor/director, Keith Andreen.
