Lloyd Morman, Duck Hill, Miss.
Smith stars as intelligence analyst Nell Jones opposite LL Cool J and Chris O’Donnell on the CBS drama NCIS: Los Angeles, but one of the most important “men” in her life happens to be Hugo, her French bulldog and the canine inspiration for a children’s book series she’s writing. Smith, 27, is a native of New York, while Scagliotti is from all the way on the other side of the country. The 22-year-old actress, who stars as resident tech guru and hacker Claudia Donovan on Syfy’s Warehouse 13, is also a geek in real life for comics and punk rock.
