NCIS' Brian Dietzen Pushes Against Heightened Romance Tropes For His Character

Speaking to Parade, Brian Dietzen expanded on the concerns that he and Katrina Law had when the “NCIS” scuttlebutt involved those crazy kids getting up to some canoodling. He stated that they both wanted a more grounded approach to televised partnership and that he liked what the writers had come up with.

According to the actor, the maturity “was on full display” in an episode when Law’s Jessica Knight told his Jimmy Palmer character that she didn’t mean to pressure him. “That was on full display a few weeks back when her character came in and very lovingly said, ‘I didn’t mean to push you,” Dietzen recalled. “And if I did, I’m sorry. I realize that by saying that I want to spend more time with your daughter that I might be pushing you too fast into this,’ and Jimmy opened up and said, ‘No, you’re not. It’s not your fault, it’s just hard when you lose someone.’ She’s there for him. It was a very adult conversation and it showed how they cared for one another and had one another’s back.”

Relationships are hard, and there’s an argument to be made that they get more difficult when every fictitious example in your periphery is based on bonkers drama. It’s nice to hear about writers choosing relatable, difficult truths instead of cheap, dramatic tricks.

Or at least that’s what your secret lover in the Cayman Islands probably thinks, Carl.
