Meet the ‘NCIS:LA’ star who won ‘Dancing’ in another country

New article that doesnt have anything spoilery.

(CNN) — For the past two seasons, Daniela Ruah has played junior field agent Kensi Blye on “NCIS: Los Angeles.” But the vivacious olive-skinned actress first became famous in another country: her parents’ homeland of Portugal. She even won the Iberian version of “Dancing with the Stars.”

Ruah is descended from a family of doctors. Her father is the former resident chief of otolaryngology (which is a fancy word for an eye, ear and throat doctor) at Boston University Hospital and her 92-year-old grandfather still practices medicine. The family moved back to their homeland when Ruah was 5.

Fluent in Portuguese, Spanish and English, Ruah moved to London at 18 to attend university and eventually made her way to New York to study at the Lee Strasberg Institute.

In her little time off, Ruah loves spending time with her dog and decorating her recently purchased home. She recently spoke with CNN about her show, her heritage and the advice she gets from a famous co-star.

CNN: Your character has a big story arc this week.

Daniela Ruah: We knew from season one that her father died when she was a teenager and this is the unveiling of what happened. She grew up never believing he had died accidentally. She’s always believed foul play and she’s been pursuing this her entire life.

She gets asked, “What are you going to do when you find the guy you think did this to your dad? Are you going to shoot him?” And she says, “Well, what if I do?” It’s a big dilemma between killing for vengeance and going the right way and dealing with things legally. There’s a lot of turmoil going on inside her and it affects the team
