Katrina Law Joins CBS’ ‘NCIS’

Katrina has joined the latest season of CBS’ NCIS series! It’s for a recurring role for now, but it’s possible she may be upgraded to series regular should the show continue for another season.

DEADLINE – Law will play NCIS REACT Special Agent Jessica Knight, a formidable REACT Team agent who specializes in hostage negotiations and handles daily high-risk operations with skill and precision. Sharp, athletic and tough, she was raised by a single mother and had to fight for everything in life and is damn good at it. Fiercely tenacious and with a wry sense of humor, Jessica is married to a stay-at-home dad who is raising their infant son.

Law’s story arc will cross over the last two episodes of the current 18th season. She is recurring, with an option for series regular next season if the series is renewed.

Katrina Law on ‘Christmas with the Darlings’ Romances

Katrina spoke with TV Insider to discuss her new holiday-themed movie, Christmas with the Darlings. Don’t miss it tomorrow, November 8th 8/7c on Hallmark Channel!

Katrina Law (Arrow, Hawaii Five-0) is back on Hallmark for her third movie, Christmas With the Darlings, Sunday’s offering for this year’s “Countdown to Christmas” event.

It’s her second for the network written by her sister-in-law, Tracy Andreen (the first was 2013’s Snow Bride), but their relationship is not why Law loves working with her. “I personally love my sister-in-law regardless of whether I was related to her or not,” Law tells TV Insider. “I think she’s brilliant, I think she’s talented, and I think she writes really fun, creative, heartwarming, funny stories. And to be part of it and to know she trusted me with her second movie was an honor. And to know Hallmark trusted me with a third movie was even more of an honor.”

In this film, Law stars as Jessica Lew, the executive assistant to Darlington Corporation’s CEO, Charles Darlington (Steve Bacic). She’s put in her two weeks’ notice, with plans to continue working for the company as a lawyer.

“There’s a lot of mutual respect [there],” she says. But “one of the best qualities about Jessica, and also the same quality that holds her back a lot, is her loyalty. She’s so loyal and so grateful to Charles Darlington and the Darlington Corporation because not only do they provide her with an amazing job and an amazing work atmosphere, they allowed her to go to law school and finish up her degree as she was working within the company.”

So for her, Charles is “a mix between mentor, amazing boss, father figure, [and] older brother,” whereas his younger brother Max (Carlo Marks), at first, comes across as “the charming, annoying brother.” But as she’ll soon learn, that’s not the case. (Cue the romance!)

Because when she learns that Charles’ orphaned nieces and nephew are going to spend the holidays at boarding school, she volunteers to watch them to ensure they “have a great Christmas,” Law says, and Max joins her. Then, the man she “has a fondness for” but who seemed to be “very unreliable” — Jessica’s reaction when he volunteers to help says it all — becomes “an absolutely wonderful uncle and is 100 percent in this project with her to create a great Christmas for these children.”

Throughout the movie, Jessica learns more about who Max really is, “which is this super-sensitive, vulnerable guy who really wants to be more responsible than what he’s perceived as,” Law says. The two of them help bring each other to the middle — with Jessica more Type A and Max more spontaneous.

“It’s really lovely to see them interacting and compromising with each other, but doing it in a fun and loving way that ends up being quite wonderful for the children in the long run. And, he helps her to realize the joy in spontaneity,” she adds.

The other key relationship in Jessica’s life is that with her best friend, Zoe (Morgana Wyllie). Jessica enjoys playing matchmaker for her with the barista, Kate (Quinnie Vu), who’s clearly interested. Jessica thinks Zoe is “the world’s greatest catch,” Law says. “She’s smart, she’s beautiful, she’s confident. She is sensitive, warm, loving, open, a very successful surgeon, and yet, somehow, still so insecure and awkward at the same time, especially when it comes to dating and putting herself out there.”

Fortunately, Zoe has a best friend who looks out for her. Jessica thinks that with “Kate, who’s nothing but adorable, the two of them will end up being a great relationship,” Law adds. “By the end of the story, I think I’m right.”

Hawaii Five-0’s Katrina Law Teases Quinn’s Secret and an Emotional Series Finale

Katrina did an interview with TVLine about what’s ahead of Quinn and the series finale.

TVLINE | What is Quinn up to this week?
We find out that Quinn, in her former life, before Five-0, was married, and in this episode, her former stepdaughter (played by Siena Agudong) reaches out to her to help her, because her father/my ex-husband has gone missing.

TVLINE | What other sorts things are we going to learn along the way about Quinn’s past?
Well, we’re going to learn a bit more about Quinn and her relationship with her father, and why this marriage may not have worked out and the driving force of basically why Quinn became Five-0 and the reason why her personality was shaped. And you will also get to see her love for her stepdaughter.

TVLINE | Who from the team will Quinn enlist in searching for her ex?
You know, out of all the people that she reaches out to, she decides to reach out to Adam—

TVLINE | No way! He’s been a bit of a no-goodnik lately.
Yeah, Ian [Anthony Dale] and I were laughing about that. I think it’s because the two of them maybe have a bit of a sordid past, so she trusts that he will keep her secret, that he will go along with the ride with no judgments and basically be a great ally to her. This is pretty personal journey for her.

TVLINE | Will this investigation require any gunplay, any heroics, any action/leaping/jumping?
Maybe some smacking some sense into people, but… [Laughs]

‘Hawaii Five-0’ to End After 10 Seasons on CBS

A sad news has been announced today, the current season of Hawaii Five-O will serve as its final one. The show will wrap-up its 10-season run with a two-hour series finale on April 3rd.

CBS – HAWAII FIVE-0, the popular Friday night crime drama, will conclude its successful 10-season run with a two-hour series finale, Friday, April 3 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The drama, a reimagining of Leonard Freeman’s classic series, “Hawaii Five-O,” has been an outstanding performer throughout the past decade, both domestically and internationally, where it has been seen in more than 200 countries.

“It’s never easy to say goodbye to a hit franchise that carried on the legacy of the original with such distinction, while establishing its own signature style,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “From episode one, HAWAII FIVE-0 has been a huge success for us. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, it has played a key role for a decade on our schedule and helped establish our powerhouse Friday night. We cannot be prouder of its quality and longevity and are thankful for the passionate fan devotion it inspired.”

“For 10 seasons, Alex, Scott and the rest of the talented FIVE-0 cast have brought fans exciting adventures in a spectacular tropical paradise,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “We specifically want to thank Peter and the incredibly talented production team for 10 years of consistently outstanding television. The drama has been a great success for the Studio and Network, and as a global franchise for our company. We’re pleased to give it a big sendoff and that viewers will have the opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters as the final season wraps.”

“HAWAII FIVE-0 has been such a blessing to me and all of the people who have worked on this incredible show,” said Peter M. Lenkov, Executive Producer. “I truly learned the meaning of ‘ohana’ as the viewers embraced us and the people of Hawaii welcomed us with the privilege to film on their shores. I am forever indebted to the creative genius that was Leonard Freeman who gave us such a beautiful story to begin with. And my eternal gratitude to our cast, led by our hero Alex O’Loughlin, the writers, the production team, our CBS ohana, and most importantly YOU, the fans, who allowed us to come to work with pride and made our series such a success. Mahalo.”

“This show has been pretty much every waking moment for the last 10 years of my life,” said series star Alex O’Loughlin. “Everywhere I go on this planet, in every language, I am McGarrett to all these people. What we’ve done, what we’ve accomplished, it’s extraordinary. I can’t really put words to express my level of gratitude. I’m just glad to have been a part of this, a part of history, and I’m going to miss it. And to the fans, I don’t know how to thank you guys. Thank you for following us the way you have. I’m going to miss you. Aloha.”

‘Hawaii Five-0’ & ‘Magnum P.I.’ Crossover Set for January

CBS’ shows, Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I., are set for a full-on crossover on January 03, 2020 in back-to-back episodes!

TVLINE – TVLine has learned that a full-on crossover between CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 and Magnum P.I. is officially happening, on Friday, Jan. 3, 2020 in back-to-back episodes.

In fact, showrunner Peter M. Lenkov tells us that the Magnum half of the crossover has already completed filming, and the Five-0 half is nearly done.

Though this merging of the Aloha State-based procedurals did not come to fruition during Magnum‘s freshman run, as initially hoped, Lenkov had told TVLine over the summer that he was resolved to making it happen this TV season. Weeks later, he updated us, “We have narrowed down a story.”

That story will find “our Five-0 guys kicking down doors” to track down a POI at a hotel — unaware that private eyes Thomas Magnum and Juliet Higgins are surveilling the same room. “In a way, Higgins and Magnum become witnesses that Five-0 needs to help them,” says Lenkov. “And our two worlds collide!”

Specifically, Magnum, Higgins, TC and Rick (played by Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Stephen Hill and Zachary Knighton) will appear in that Friday’s Five-0 episode alongside McGarrett & Co., after which Five-0‘s Junior, Tani and Quinn (played by Beulah Koale , Meaghan Rath and Katrina Law) will continue on to Magnum P.I.

“It’s a big-stakes story that really feels like a two-hour movie,” says Lenkov. And while the series’ showrunner feared he would have a hard time convincing Magnum‘s much smaller cast that the “double-ups” (filming two episodes at once) were worth it, “That was not an issue at all.”

Pop-Culturalist Chats with Katrina Law

P-C: You’ve had a ton of success already in your career. When you look back, is there a particular moment that sticks out to you?
Katrina: Yes, there were a couple of moments. My very first job was an extra on Lucky Numbers, a Nora Ephron film. They were shooting in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. I remember being so excited that a Hollywood production was coming to my side of town. I drove two and a half hours to get to Harrisburg to be an extra. It was in the middle of November. For those of you who don’t know, November in Harrisburg is cold, and they were like, “Well, we need people to jump into the river and get on these floats and act like it’s summertime.” The water was like thirty-five degrees, and the air was thirty-six degrees. We got paid like fifty dollars. [laugh] I remember I was so excited that I volunteered and I did it. It was one of the best days of my life because I was so happy. I love set life, and I was contemplating whether or not I wanted to do this as a career. This was also a test to see if I loved the environment.

It’s amazing. I look back on that, and I think how far I’ve come and how excited I was. There are times where I have to remind myself don’t ever lose that level of excitement. Don’t ever take this industry for granted. Don’t ever take this job for granted. It’s moments like that. I remember when I booked Spartacus. It had been such a struggle. I’d been in LA for ten years at that point and booked nothing. I was told I wasn’t Asian enough or I was too Asian. I was told I wasn’t good enough. I was told I was too fat. I was told this and that—just about everything. Then I booked Spartacus, and I remember I broke down sobbing when I got the call. My husband, who was my boyfriend at the time, was like, “What’s wrong?” I was like, “Nothing. This is so good.” He’s like, “Why are you crying?” I’m like, “I don’t know.” It’s moments like that where I try to hold on to and remember how big this dream was when I was a little girl in Jersey and how impossible it seemed. Now, it’s my nine-to-five, and I have to not forget how hard I fought for it.

P-C: In those moments when you weren’t booking roles, how were you able to push forward and persevere?
Katrina: In this industry, in order to make it, you have to be incredibly stupid and narcissistic at the same time. There was this overwhelming belief that I was going to make it. I was like, “No, this is it! I’m going to make it. You don’t think I’m good enough? I’m totally good enough.” I started to look at myself as a product. I wasn’t going to let the noes and rejection defeat me. I went, “Fine. My product isn’t good enough. I’ll make it better. How do I make it better? You don’t think I’m a good enough actor? Well, I’ll take more classes. You don’t think this and that, I’ll fix it.” As long as I don’t feel like I’m selling my soul, I’ll do it. When everybody is telling you “no,” you have to be your strongest advocate. There are times you have to be stupid and say, “I’m going to make it, and I’m not going to listen to common sense.” [laughs] When you’re not able to pay your rent, you have to be like, “No, it’s fine. It’s totally fine.” I think stupidity and narcissism got me through the majority of my career.

P-C: Who or what would you say has had the biggest influence on your career?
Katrina: I think it’s between my husband, Keith Andreen, and then my manager, Joel Stevens, and their unwavering faith in my eventual success. Their ability to speak to me with the hard truth but yet do it in a kind, loving way that didn’t defeat me or destroy me.

My husband has been my acting coach since 2009. 2009 is when I started really booking everything. He’s been really great at being able to say, “You’re doing one of your tricks” or “I can see you’re phoning it in.” He’s been great because he knows me personally. He’s able to call me out pretty quickly.

The same with my manager. He’s eternally optimistic. Joel Stevens has been there when there were stretches where I wasn’t booking, and at no point did he threaten to drop me as a client. There was a time when I conveyed to him that I was afraid he was going to drop me because I hadn’t booked anything in two years. He goes, “No way. We’re in this for the long run. This is a marathon. This isn’t a sprint.” I think surrounding myself with people who are your biggest cheerleaders in this industry—in any form of life actually—is so important.
