Okay, admittedly, it was not a big role. And probably most people missed this guest appearance because it took place all the way in season 1. But it did feature Josh Holloway who would land a massive breakthrough with “Lost”.
However, if you did remember Episode 12 of Season 1, you will remember an unnamed West Virginian Police Sherriff who had no qualms about making awkward jokes which did not sit well with Leroy Gibbs. It does not help that NCIS was called to investigate the matter of a marine’s limbs found in the trashcan.
With a show that involves the FBI, NSA, and IRS, you’re bound to have some moles or double-crossing individuals pop up. Meet, Melinda Stone. Sure, she was the character only featured in one episode in Season 1, but she became one of the memorable villainesses, mainly because she managed to deceive the NCIS crew.
Stone pretends to work at a pawn shop, but her true business is gun-running and arms smuggling. Something was definitely up and “NCIS” gave us a good reason to have our suspicions of pawnbrokers.
Bellamy Young – Melinda Stone
Audiences probably best know Bellamy Young for her role in the thriller TV series “Scandal” where the actress portrayed Mellie Grant. This actress was born in North Carolina and attended Yale University. She also studied in the United Kingdom at the British American Drama Academy.
After her short role in “NCIS”, Young was featured in numerous films including “Mission Impossible III” and TV series such as “Scrubs” and “CSI: Miami” where she had recurring roles. More recently, the actress starred in the drama “Promised Land”. In 2020, she married Pedro Segundo but a year later their married dissolved.
Josh Holloway – West Virginia Sheriff
All the way back in Season 1, this actor was featured on “NCIS” but since then, Josh Holloway has made a name for himself. One of his most notable roles to date was portraying bad-guy Sawyer in “Lost”. Holloway has also made up the cast of “Yellowstone” and “Colony”.
A major moment for the actor was when he was featured in “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”. Holloway has also involved himself with the production side of things. He was one of the producers of “Colony” and “Intelligence” – which he also starred in.
We all know that a good crime show needs a good villain. What beats a good villain, is a good villainess. Meet Elaine Burns. She could have pulled off the robbery of a lifetime – who can beat Civil War arms – if it were not for Ziva David’s heroic intervention. Before we pulled the mask off this villainess, she worked closely alongside Special Agent Leroy Gibbs as a forensic anthropologist at the Smithsonian.
The team was sent to investigate the death of Staff Sergeant Warren Sorrow, but when they got too close to learning the truth, Burns showed her true colors.
