Luttrell reported a successful table read today, with shooting to begin later this week.
She played the Athosian warrior Teyla Emmagan for five seasons on Stargate Atlantis.
No word on her NCIS character or when the episode will air just yet, but since it begins filming this week, odds are that it will turn up around November.
Season Five of NCIS: Los Angeles premieres Tuesday, September 24 (9/8c) on CBS.
In the meantime, see what Rachel has been doing lately! Her short film “Zarg Attack!”, with Connor Trinneer (“Michael”), is below. At just shy of 4 minutes, it also stars her young son, Caden Dar (born during the filming of Atlantis).
