NCIS L.A: During Her Early Career Daniela Ruah ‘Was Afraid She Would Be Fired At Any Time’

Daniela Ruah, known for her role as Kensi Blye on NCIS: Los Angeles, didn’t always have the confidence she portrays on CBS. More than two decades ago, when she first ventured into acting, Ruah had a fear of being let go.

Her national television breakthrough came when she joined NCIS: Los Angeles as Agent Kensi Blye in 2009. Before her stint on the CBS cop drama, she primarily worked in Portuguese television, with her first significant role as Sara in the soap opera Jardins Proibidos for a year.

She subsequently appeared in other dramas like Filha do Mar, Dei-te Quase Tudo, and Tu e Eu. These experiences were crucial in gaining recognition for the 39-year-old actress, but it wasn’t always a stress-free journey.

Ruah discusses working on Portuguese soap operas and how eager newbies were to stay on the show on The Wayne Ayers Podcast.

“It felt very difficult in the beginning and then you’re just happy to be there” , she went on to say.

“And this is a good lesson to teach any young people who want to be actors: you’ll always say yes to everything.”

“For one thing, you’re thinking, ‘I don’t want to be difficult, I don’t want to get fired.’”

“You always feel like you’re going to get fired for being tough, yet it’s critical that you stay firm on certain issues.”

“Like, don’t be late, that’s basic,” she continued. Get up and head on set when they knock on your trailer or the green room, or wherever you’re waiting.

“There’s a group of people waiting to go home that day, and you don’t want to be the cause of any delays.”

“However, if they say, ‘hey, do you mind working 15, 16 hours and coming back tomorrow at 7am,’ you can say no.”

Because that is not humanly healthy, and you will not do your work well the next day if you have just done that.

I can’t speak for movies, but everyone will ask you everything, and you really need to sift out what you’re okay with and what would ruin you in the long run.

NCIS: Los Angeles finished after 14 seasons earlier this year, but Ruah has kept busy outside of the show.

She has already appeared as Fatima in the Netflix Portuguese series Turn of the Tide.
