Michael Weatherly Explains Why Leaving NCIS Was Better For His Kids


Michael Weatherly, best known for his role on NCIS, chose family above stardom, putting his three children first. Weatherly left the show in 2016 and cited his children’s critical ages as a motivating reason.

With more time to spend with Olivia, Liam, and his eldest, August, Weatherly stressed the thrill of being wrapped around his children’s fingers. Balancing power and nurture remains difficult, but for Weatherly, the benefits of parenthood surpass any Hollywood attention.

“I’m just a sucker and I’m trying very hard to be authority dad,” he explained, adding, “As a lot of working parents know, when you’re not around a lot and then you’re with your kids, it’s very difficult to just come in and be the strict one because then you’re just a [expletive]” but maintaining, “You don’t want to be too soft.”

Even though he misses being a part of NCIS, he insists that the pay-off, being able to spend more time with his family, is unquestionably a worthy reward.

“I think a lot about the kids and the time I get to spend with them now, at this age of four and two and a half, which is such a critical time,” Michael said.
