Wilmer Valderrama Dishes On the Future of Nick & Ellie on 'NCIS'

Wilmer Valderrama and Emily Wickersham make up one of television’s most interesting will they or won’t they couples – Nick Torres and Ellie Bishop on NCIS.

Following tonight’s all-new episode, the 41-year-old actor and new dad opened up about if what label he’d put on Nick and Ellie now and if they will ever act on their feelings.

“Above it all, they have a very deep friendship,” Wilmer told TVInsider. “He has never really confided in anyone. He was an undercover agent before he joined NCIS and is trained to not trust anyone. It’s tough to break those rules, but this team has really cracked something in Torres and allowed Torres to think outside of himself and maybe even wonder, ‘Is there a family in that?’ He really bought into that.”

When it comes specifically to Torres and Bishop, Wilmer says that they “themselves don’t know what this is yet.”

“They’ve never broken that rule. They’re not necessarily emotionally available, but they know they need to lean on somebody and this is the closest to a friendship or relationship they’ll ever have at this moment. I really believe that Torres sees Bishop as someone that will never betray him or lie to him.

Wilmer also opened up about if the series will address the duo’s relationship outside of the bullpen this season.

“We’re going to see it,” he confirms. “This is the season where we understand where it all will fall. The writers have done a beautiful love letter to the fans that have been wanting to know and understand more about [them].”

Stay tuned for more on NCIS!
