I have enjoyed Ms.Hunt in everything I have seen her in. She is such a wonderful addition to NCIS. It wouldnt be the same without her.
jim says:
The last episode that I saw of NCIS - LA did not have Linda Hunt in it. Why? Has she been written out, or has she retired?
mom says:
Does Linda have Turners Syndrome?
nrs says:
I have admired Linda Hunt's work since seeing her @LongWharf..the show will lose a special balance if she is no longer in the cast...I hope she is well..and if leaving..has a fabulous offer to do something interesting..but an option to return to NCIS/LA.

Who is Linda Hunt dating? What do you think of Linda Hunt?
