Katie has a history of playing deaf characters, but she herself is not deaf. She does have hearing loss.

As her character’s hearing will play into the NCIS episode in which she’s guest starring, it’s led many to ask if Katie herself is deaf. She’s actually not. According to Women’s Health, she does suffer from Ménière’s disease and that causes her to have intermittent hearing loss and vertigo.
