For 8 years, Cote de Pablo has been an integral part of the CBS smash hit that is NCIS. Voted TV's Sexiest Law Enforcement Officer, and even one of the US's all time favorite celebrities, Cote has delighted us with her presence on the show as her beautiful yet deadly character Ziva David.
Now after an 8 season run with her on board, the 22 million average viewers of NCIS are forced to look at the bleak future of a program without her, and that is something that has shocked and devastated a large amount of people.
Ziva is a character that has inspired many girls and women to become the people they are today: to not give up through hardship, fight for their own happiness and find your family. She has taught values such as strength, resilience and courage. I know she has been a huge role model to me personally and it absolutely devastates me to see her character written off like this after such a long time.
So this is why I am making this petition today: please bring Cote back! NCIS isn't NCIS without Cote de Pablo, and this is on behalf of all viewers out there who feel the same.
