Who is Marta Goldstein? Sunday night’s new episode of NCIS: New Orleans paid tribute to Marta Goldstein in its closing minutes for her longtime contributions to the show.
Marta Goldstein Death – Who is Marta Goldstein – ‘NCIS: New Orleans’
Goldstein was a longtime script supervisor in Hollywood, working on such series as Ugly Betty, Scrubs, The Practice, and a number of other series. She worked as a part of the NCIS: New Orleans universe since 2014, and was a part of the entertainment world for decades.
Although there were no details on Marta Goldstein’s death at the end of the episode, her significance to the series’ long-term success is visible. Making sure a show like this runs smoothly behind the scenes is no easy task, especially when you are producing anywhere from 22 to 24 episodes a season most years. You have to establish and maintain continuity, and that exists across multiple departments and aspects of the end product. It’s a job that has many more specific duties than we could ever hope to list off here.
As some of you may know, title card tributes are one of the best ways that any series can honor someone who was a part of the cast and crew. It accompanies a show across all future airings, and reminds viewers at the same time that this work of entertainment is produced by hard-working people. Many of them are unsung heroes who rarely receive recognition for their work.
Marta Goldstein is a part of the NCIS: New Orleans family, and that the entire staff wants to ensure that she is remembered even after her passing.
Our thoughts go out to Goldstein’s family during what has to be a difficult time, and applaud the NCIS: New Orleans production staff for taking a moment in tonight’s episode to honor her.
