For fifteen seasons, Pauley Perrette portrayed forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on NCIS. Perrette played one of the show’s best characters during her time on the show. Fans are still hoping for her return after she left the show in 2018. That is unlikely to happen. Fans, on the other hand, understandably want her back. Abby was a charming character. Her outgoing personality set her apart from the crowd. At the same time, Perrette and her co-stars had great chemistry. In a nutshell, her performance was a delight to watch.
The interaction between Pauley Perrette’s character and Agent Gibbs was one of the show’s highlights. Gibbs, the head of the NCIS team, is a stern leader with a long military history. So it’s great to see him interact with Abby, a quirky goth with an irreverent sense of humour.
TV Guide released a Gibbs Forever Special Collector’s Edition last year. They went behind the scenes of NCIS and celebrated Agent Gibbs’ time on the show in that issue. Behind-the-scenes photos and quotes from several of Mark Harmon’s co-stars were included in this look back at the team’s leader. According to TV Insider, Pauley Perrette was quoted. She discussed how Abby differed from the other members of the team.
Pauley Perrette on What Set Abby Apart
According to Pauley Perrette, Abby’s relationship with Gibbs set her apart from the rest of the team. “Abby is the only one who can tell [Agent Gibbs] ‘Gibbs, you’re being crabby.'” “No one else would be allowed,” she explained. She is not mistaken. It’s difficult to imagine anyone else on the show calling Gibbs out or sharing some lighthearted sarcasm with the boss.
This emphasized how different Abby was from the rest of the cast. It also elevated her to the status of a pivotal character. She could step up and tell Gibbs if he was out of line or needed to shift his focus. Other team members would not have the same opportunity. So, in a way, Abby balanced out the team.
Perrette’s Departure from NCIS
It’s ironic that Abby and Gibbs had such a strong bond. Pauley Perrette left the show following a squabble with Mark Harmon. Harmon allegedly brought an unruly dog to the set, according to Perrette. His dog bit a member of the crew. Harmon’s negligence, according to the actress, created an unsafe work environment. However, he and the other showrunners have denied these allegations. Finally, one unmistakable fact emerged: Perrette called it quits.
Pauley Perrette tweeted in 2019 that she would never return to the show. She told those who inquired that she was “terrified” of Mark Harmon. She went on to say that she had nightmares about him att4ck1ng her.
