Why So Many Stars Left NCIS


When Pauley Perrette told ET Canada in 2018 that viewers haven’t seen “a character like Abby on television,” she wasn’t kidding. Perrette played the gothic forensic scientist Abigail Sciuto on NCIS for the series’ first 15 seasons before her shocking exit. As revealed to CBS Sunday Morning, the three-time People’s Choice Awards nominee wanted a break and didn’t like the fame that came along with the role, labeling it “dehumanizing.”

Apparently, there was a lot going on behind the scenes. As The Wrap reported, after Mark Harmon’s dog bit a crew member in 2016, his relationship with Perrette soured. Over the years, Perrette tweeted a number of accusations regarding her time on the show, and in June 2019, TMZ reported she alleged Harmon “body checked her on set in 2017.” That same month, she tweeted, “I am terrified of Harmon and him attacking me. I have nightmares about it.” According to TV Guide, when asked about the allegations at the 2019 TCAs, CBS President of Entertainment Kelly Kahl told reporters, “We immediately investigated it and we resolved it to everyone’s satisfaction.”

In July 2020, Perrette fired off numerous tweets backing a Vanity Fair article that exposed CBS showrunner Peter Lenkov, who was sacked due to misconduct. Perrette tweeted about the “great reporting” and went on to add that she testified that she heard “racist,” “misogynistic,” and “homophobic” slurs on set that was “hurtful.” She continued, “And y’all wondered why I quit? Those producers are still there. All of them. Including HIM.”
