NCIS: New Orleans cast changes seem to be pretty frequent and there have even been a few new additions recently. Christina Elizabeth Smith and Vanessa Ferlito, who have taken on important roles during Season 5, while rumors continue to ask whether Pride is leaving or not.

Christina Elizabeth Smith has joined NCIS: New Orleans in the recurring role of Ginny Young. She’ll be assisting Pride, who is played by star Scott Bakula.

As for Vanessa Ferlito, she was part of an NCIS: New Orleans casting change right before Shalita Grant left the show. Grant played NCIS Special Agent Sonja Percy, a character that appeared during the first four seasons on CBS.

Is Vanessa Ferlito pregnant?

An interesting question has been popping up on social media, with NCIS fans asking is Vanessa Ferlito pregnant?

Ferlito is a recurring cast member as FBI prodigy and NCIS Special Agent Tammy Gregorio. Her appearance in Season 5 is a bit different than in Season 4, possibly leading to these questions.

Though she has neither confirmed or denied any claims of being pregnant, it doesn’t appear to be the case.

Is Pride leaving NCIS: New Orleans?

There are still lingering questions about Dwayne Pride. Many of them revolve around Pride leaving NCIS: New Orleans.

This is due to the injuries that the character suffered during the Season 4 finale, and not because actor Scott Bakula has hinted at leaving the show. In fact, he could be around for many years to come.

It does seem like there are more NCIS: New Orleans cast changes than what takes place on the other two NCIS programs.

Zoey McLellan, who played Meredith Brody, also left the show following Season 2, leading to the casting of Vanessa Ferlito. This is quickly becoming one of those shows where you want to stay on the good side of the writers.

NCIS: New Orleans airs Tuesday nights at 10/9c on CBS.
