Who is Connor on NCIS New Orleans? People are wondering after a new face appeared in the episode Choices on Sunday.

NCIS New Orleans cast

NCIS is a spin-off series of NCIS: Los Angeles, which itself was borne out of JAG (Judge Advocate General), from the same creator, Donald P. Bellisario.

The show premiered on CBS on 23 September, 2014, following the twelfth season of NCIS.

Both shows are known for their fluctuating and vast casts. The New Orleans incarnation, executive produced by Gary Glasberg and Mark Harmon, features an extensive regular cast, including Scott Bakula as Dwayne Cassius Pride, Lucas Black as Christopher LaSalle, Zoe McLellan as Meredith Brody and Vanessa Ferlito as Tammy Gregorio.

Recurring actors, including Shanley Caswell as Laurel Pride, Rocky Carroll as Leon Vance, and Derek Webster as Raymond Isler, appear intermittently.

But it was one of the newest additions to cast that caught the eye on Sunday.

The character Connor Davenport, son of boss of the NCIS squad Dwayne Pride, actually made his debut in Once Upon A Time which aired on April 4.

 

But his important part in the script in Sunday’s Choices led people to ask where they had seen him before.

So, who is Connor on NCIS New Orleans? The actor’s name is Drew Scheid, a 23-year-old from Altoona, Pennsylvania.

He is perhaps best known for his work on Halloween (2018) as Oscar, Cameron’s best friend, but you may also recognise him for his portrayal of a sweaty teen in Stranger Things season two.

Scheid appeared in three episodes of the sci-fi drama in 2017 and you will probably be seeing much more of him as he is slated to appear in upcoming episodes of Mare Of Easttown alongside Kate Winslet.

Writing about his involvement in NCIS New Orleans, he wrote on Instagram yesterday: “So excited to be in the next couple episodes of the series! Check it out tonight at 10pm on CBS ! Had the best time on @ncisnola I can’t wait to watch.”
