There may be three shows currently airing in the NCIS franchise, and CBS may host the occasional crossover of those series (primarily between NCIS and New Orleans as of late), but that doesn't mean that the three shows necessarily share the same characters.

Over the years, many of the same actors have appeared across the three series, sometimes in different roles — especially when the guest star's original character died. Sometimes they've played a very different role, and at other times they've still been the good or bad guy.
