Spoilers for Season 12 Episode 7 'Overdue'

The winter premiere of 'NCIS: Los Angeles' brings back special agent Sam Hanna's 'little girl' – Kamran 'Kam' Hanna. All grown up and freshly accepted into the Naval academy, Kam is a woman who's accomplished big things all on her own, as her proud father loves to brag. But who plays the role? And where have we seen this actress before? Read on to find out.

For those wondering who Kam is, to brush up, she is Sam's daughter from his marriage to Michelle – the couple also has an older son, Aiden Hanna making him Kam's older brother. So far, we have met Kam in Season 3 Episode 9 'Betrayal', Season 4 Episode 6 'Rude Awakenings', Season 6 Episode 11 'Humbug', Season 8 Episode 23 'Uncaged', and finally, her latest appearance is in Season 12 Episode 7 'Overdue'.

According to the official synopsis of this episode, "The NCIS team's murder investigation of a man who sold military information leads to the abduction of a doctor whose cutting-edge neurotechnology could be developed into advanced weaponry; Callen tries to have an important talk with Arkady."

Kam returns to the show as she is enjoying her winter break and gets into a tiff with her dad Sam over how she will spend her spring break before she heads to the Naval academy. Her dad wants her to train with him but she wants to visit Aspen with her friends. The tiff doesn't last long as Kam is able to convince Sam pretty quickly that she can handle the academy without the last-minute training. And thereon, Sam only gushes about how far Kam has come.

This year, Kayla Smith hopped on board with the cast as a recurring actor to play the role of Kam in the latest season of 'NCIS: LA', taking over from Layla Crawford who has played the role in the past. Previously, the actress has starred in TV shows like 'All American', 'Ambitions', and 'Star'. Smith has also been active in non-scripted programs, including the TBS reality show 'Meet the Smiths', led by the actor's father, who is none other than retired NBA player-turned-commentator Kenny “The Jet” Smith.

'NCIS: Los Angeles' Season 12 airs on Sundays at 8 pm only on CBS.
