Is Linda Hunt retiring from NCIS: Los Angeles?

Hetty’s disappearance might be because of the car accident that actress Linda Hunt was in. Hunt crashed her SUV while driving around Hollywood in July this year.

Sources reveal that the actress has been recovering from the crash. This might explain why she hasn’t appeared in person on the show. The actress hasn’t talked about her status on the show.


So, we’ll be waiting for her return until then!  Eric Christian Olsen (Deeks) had this to say about Linda’s future on the show - "She’s going to do this — hopefully forever. And I say that not only as a character but as an actor on the show. Everything is better with Linda Hunt, and everything is better with Hetty Lange."
