The NCIS cast was joined by a new character for the latest episode titled A Thousand Words. It led a lot of viewers to ask who played Ritz on NCIS?

If you haven’t watched the episode yet, then beware, because there are some spoilers that go along with this information. There was more than one character going by the name Ritz during Season 16 Episode 7.

Through the course of a case they were investigating, the NCIS team ended up pursuing a street artist named Ritz.

At first, they thought they were chasing a man, who ended up dead. Then, a woman came forward, stating that she was the real Ritz.

In the final scene for the episode, it was revealed that this woman may not have been the real Ritz, either.

Who played Ritz on NCIS?

Abbie Cobb is the name of the actress who played Ritz for most of the November 13 NCIS episode. She has appeared in a number of recognizable roles, including Emily on the Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot, Kimantha on Suburgatory, and Meredith on Jack Marshall Can’t Do This.

Cobb has also been in a number of movies, including The Candle, Drag Me To Hell, and Mom’s Night Out.

Now, she has taken on the role of the primary Ritz, who has a special bond with Special Agent Bishop during this episode. It was a strong performance and a character that could be fun to see again on NCIS.

With the way the episode ended in a mystery, maybe the writers have the same idea. Bringing back Abbie Cobb as Ritz within the NCIS cast could be fun.

NCIS airs Tuesday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
