A McComb woman who is studying to be a filmmaker will appear on the other side of the lens on national TV next week.

Porchia Green, a junior film major at Loyola University in New Orleans, will appear in a non-speaking role in episode 11 of season 6 of NCIS: New Orleans on Tuesday, her mother Dorothy Robinson said.

Green appears in a part of the episode that was filmed at Loyola and involves an on-campus shooting.

“They all had to run and stuff to safety,” Robinson said.

Green, who was McComb High School’s 2017 valedictorian and STAR Student, is attending Loyola on a scholarship. Robinson said she recently completed shooting a documentary in McComb for a class project.

“She’s really determined. I’m really excited for her,” she said. “She wants to be director.”
