Alana de la Garza is pulling double duty…

The 43-year-old half-Mexican American actress, co-star of CBS’ upcoming midseason drama FBI: Most Wanted, will be joining the cast of its mothership, FBI, as a series regular.

de la Garza will reprise her role as Assistant Special Agent in Charge Isobel Castile. She’ll still continue to play the character on offshoot FBI: Most Wanted, as a recurring guest star.

On FBI, which returns for a second season in the fall, de la Garza will fill the void left by the departure of Sela Ward, who had a one-year deal for the series. Ward played Special Agent in Charge Dana Mosier, who submitted her resignation in the Season 1 finale. Given Isobel’s ASAC title on FBI: Most Wanted, she should be able to fit in nicely, taking over the boss position vacated by SAC Dana Mosier on FBI. 

The move underscores the cohesiveness of the television universes Dick Wolfbuilds with his procedural franchises, like NBC’s “One Chicago,” where characters and actors move seamlessly between shows. 

de la Garza has experienced that firsthand — after she played Connie Rubirosa on Wolf’s long-running NBCprocedural drama Law & Order, she reprised the role on spinoff Law & Order: LA and in an episode of Law & Order: SVU

On FBI, produced by Wolf EntertainmentUniversal Televisionand CBS Television Studios, de la Garza joins series regulars Missy PeregrymZeeko Zaki, fellow Law & Order alum Jeremy Sisto and Ebonée Noel.

On FBI: Most Wanted, de la Garza’s ASAC Isobel Castile is a Fugitive Squad Supervisor. A polished and focused West Point graduate with a brief stint in Silicon Valley, she’s a rising star who shuns politics and is a guided missile in the field. The spinoff, which was introduced as a backdoor pilot episode of FBI this past spring, stars Julian McMahonKeisha Castle-HughesKellan LutzRoxy Sternbergand Nathaniel Arcand.

de la Garza previously starred on CBS’ Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders and ABC’s Forever.
