There was a seemingly endless parade of stars at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony on Sunday night, but two big names were notably missing from the event — President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania.

The first couple previously announced their decision not to attend this year’s ceremony — or host the traditional pre-game reception at the White House — saying they hoped their absence would “allow the honorees to celebrate without any political distraction.”

NCIS: La's Renée Felice Smith Teases Episode 200's Nell Reveal, Hetty vs. Tiger (!) — Plus: Secrets From the Set
When CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles first came calling, New York-bred Renée Felice Smith had just graduated from Nyu’s Tisch School of the Arts with little more on her resume than an Off-Broadway show and a passed-over CW pilot — Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s The Wyoming Project, which she likens to “Little House on the Prairie meets Party of Five” — on her resume.

As such, being courted to join the high-octane NCIS spinoff for Season 2 “was really big, huge,” the actress warmly recalls. “It changed my life.”
