Linda Hunt has been in NCIS LA since the series started back in 2009. She portrays the one and only Hetty Lange, the Operations Manager at NCIS who is in charge of running the team of agents. Even though she is rarely part of the action, Hetty has been an integral part of the show.
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from NCIS Los Angeles.
Hetty may be a stern woman but she is also a softy at heart, having taken care of Agent Callen (played by Chris O'Donnell) since he was a teenager.
She has helped to keep all of the agents on the straight and narrow, as well as provided them with advice and guidance in their times of need.
Hetty was even the one who married Agents Marty Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) and Kensi Blye (Daniela Ruah) in season 10.
So her time on NCIS LA has been important for both the characters in the CBS series and its fans watching at home.
