Tovar played the scheming Rosalie Martinez on GH from June 2014 to August 2015, and during her brief run on the soap became a character many viewers loved to hate. Since leaving daytime, the actress has had roles on primetime series like DYNASTY and HOME as well as a recent guest appearance on NCIS: LOS ANGELES. Catch a few glimpses of Tovar as Isabel Pardo in the trailer below for DESIGNATED SURVIVOR's Thrilling Third Season:
