Who Plays Hina In NCIS: Hawaii?

The fan-favorite "NCIS" franchise has yet another new series in its repertoire. With the debut of "NCIS: Hawaii," the franchise has moved from the continental United States to the Pacific Island paradise. That said, despite the beautiful locale that the new "NCIS" series calls home, the show continues the long-running tradition of military crimes and the crack team of agents who investigate them.

Much of what seems to be making "NCIS: Hawaii" work for audiences is the array of colorful personalities who fill out the ranks of the show. These include familiar characters such as Wilmer Valderrama's Nick Torres, who showed up for a crossover event, but also new agents such as Jane Tennant (Vanessa Lachey). One standout character who has debuted in the new show is Hina, and much of the character's success in her brief screen time can be attributed to the performance behind the role. But who exactly plays Hina in "NCIS: Hawaii?" Let's take a look.
