NCIS star Explains How the Departure of Mark Harmon Affected Their Character


Sean Murray of NCIS has addressed his character Timothy McGee’s shift in direction since Mark Harmon’s departure as Leroy Jethro Gibbs.

seasoned expert Harmon left the US police procedural in the fourth episode of season 19, bringing an end to his 18-year career with the Naval Cr1minal Investigative Service.

Almost a year and a half later, Murray was asked by Entertainment Weekly how this massive reshuffling affected Timothy McGee in the future.

“It’s been interesting because when the show first started, McGee was the show’s penultimate rookie character,” he explained. “And he has progressed as the show has progressed.”

“He’s definitely a lot more sure of himself than he used to be, and he’s capable of doing so much more than he used to be.”

“Our writers, we’ve got our guys who have stuck with us for so long, and they know this character just about as well as I do,” said the Hocus Pocus actor, who did not return for last year’s sequel. So it kind of comes naturally with the material, the way the character has grown over the years, and the way I’ve grown as an actor playing that character over the years.


“I think it’s pretty cool that I’ve played the same character for over 20 years.” I don’t believe that many actors have the opportunity to do so.

“I remember telling the writers early on that I didn’t want to be baby Maggie Simpson. I don’t want to play the same role every week and never grow. And they were very invested in the character’s development.

“So it’s just been a natural thing, and it’s been fun to do.”
