As is the case with procedural dramas, the NCIS: LA team has changed a few times over the years.

In fact, the team as it was first introduced in the NCIS episodes that served as a backdoor pilot, “Legend,” changed by the first episode. Lara Macy (Louise Lombard) was replaced by Hetty (Linda Hunt) as the Office of Special Projects’ Operations Manager.

Though Sam (LL Cool J), Callen (Chris O’Donnell), Kensi (Daniela Ruah), and Deeks (Eric Christian Olsen) are a well-oiled machine going into Season 11, they have worked with others and lost people over the years.
