Cote de pablo dating michael weatherly
is a fictional character from the CBS television series NCIS, portrayed by Chilean-born American actress Cote de Pablo.
Ziva first appeared in the season 3 premiere episode, "Kill Ari (Part 1)", and became a regular cast member from the episode "Silver War".
During a screen test, de Pablo and other actresses were paired with Michael Weatherly, who went offscript by brushing her hair back and commenting, "You remind me of Salma Hayek." De Pablo described her response as follows: "I dismissed him completely.
My primary thought was, 'Don't let this guy get physically close to you.' And, at that moment, everybody in the room started laughing and thought it was the funniest thing in the world because the chemistry between the two characters was perfect." Co-executive producer Charles Floyd Johnson remarked that de Pablo won the role of Ziva for her reaction to Weatherly's departure from the script, saying, "When you get actors who really listen and respond organically in the moment to what they're hearing, sometimes magic happens.
During a mortar attack arranged by former CIA agent Trent Kort, Ziva is apparently killed.
In an interview with Deadline Hollywood, executive producer and show runner Gary Glasberg commented on Ziva's fate; "Tremendous thought was put into every element of what you saw last night..to the lines of dialogue, the specific wordage.
At the end of the day, I leave it in the hands of our fantastic fans and audience".
She was intended to portray one of the lead female roles in a 2005 Broadway musical version of The Mambo Kings and had turned down other television roles to stay with it.It helped that by my looks, I could be taken for almost any nationality." By 1991, Rivka took her children and left Eli because she could no longer tolerate the nature of his work.They apparently attempted to reconcile at some point, though, according to Ziva, they divorced when she was 13 due to Eli's indiscretions with a female Mossad operative.During her time at Mossad, Ziva was part of a special operations unit known as Kidon, which is part of the Metsada (which is now code-named Komemiute).This unit specialized in assassinations, paramilitary operations, sabotage, and psychological warfare. As a result of early, intensive training, she is very skilled in hand-to-hand combat and shooting, later attempting to teach a class on knife throwing at NCIS.
