There must be something about actress CCH Pounder that screams authority.

The actress left her mark as a detective in the critically-acclaimed FX series The Shield.  She was a formidable presence as a district attorney last season on FX’s Sons of Anarchy and will appear on the show’s final season this year.

And later this month, she’ll join the newest, southernmost franchise of TV’s highest-rated drama, NCIS.

“There are going to be new stories, a new set of people, and a new game in town. That’s what I’m looking to create,” Pounder says of her role as Dr. Loretta Wade, the medical examiner of Jefferson Parish in NCIS: New Orleans, premiering Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. on CBS.

She’ll be joined in the Crescent City alongside Scott Bakula, Lucas Black and Zoe McLellan as NCIS special agents Dwayne Cassius Pride, Christopher LaSalle and Meredith “Merri” Brody, respectively.

Dr. Wade and the main characters were introduced in a two-part episode of NCIS  in March. Her character is eccentric, yet smart. She’s also worldly, intuitive and knows Louisiana like the back of her hand.

Below, Pounder talks about finding the “core of her character” while doing research at a local morgue with a real coroner:

  1. I have been a fan of Ms Pounder for years. She is such great actress. She embodies every character she portrays, whether dramatic or comedic. I always felt she has never gotten the recognition she so greatly deserves. I will so be watching NCIS: New Orleans.

    CCH Pounder is a little known black history acting fact all by herself. Appearing quietly on the screen for years I’m happy she is finally getting the recognition she deserves. She is one of my favorite actresses, way to go Ms. Pounder, keep up the good work!
