Jennifer Esposito as Alex Quinn
Devout fans of NCIS might remember Agent Alex Quinn from season 14. Alex was played by Jennifer Esposito, who prior to joining the cast of NCIS has had recurring roles on Samantha Who? and Blue Bloods.
In 2017, it was announced that Esposito would leave the show after one season. “It was a great experience. I could not have asked for a better opportunity than to work with the NCIS cast and producers,” said Esposito who, at the time, was a regular on Showtime’s The Affair and had booked a co-starring role in Speed Kills opposite John Travolta.
