Cote de Pablo played a woman of many talents on “NCIS.” Her character, former Israeli Mossad agent Ziva David, was an integral member of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, thanks to her brilliant mind, incredible sharp-shooting skills, and ability to dominate those who dared to engage in close combat with her. In Season 6, viewers learned that Ziva had another surprisin

One thing de Pablo loved about Ziva was that she wasn’t just a businesslike bada** who always had her guard up. “NCIS” viewers occasionally got to see her softer side, like when the chemistry was palpable between her and fellow agent Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly). As the co-workers slowly formed a deep emotional connection with each other, their walls lowered a bit — and “Tiva” was born. De Pablo explained why this side of her character resonated with viewers. “I think vulnerability is a strength,” she said on “CBS This Morning” in 2013. “And I think if people were able to be more comfortable with their vulnerability, I think we’d be a more honest people.”

De Pablo was clearly prepared to shoot emotional scenes and action sequences on “NCIS,” but she did not expect the producers to ask her to make use of a certain talent that she possesses.
