Pauley Perrette, best known for her role as Abby Sciuto on the hit CBS cr1me drama NCIS, has made a rare return to social media to show off her new look.
During her time on NCIS, Abby Sciuto (played by Pauley Perrette) was no stranger to flaunting her distinct style and appearance. Fans have been keeping up with the star via social media since she left the long-running CBS drama in 2018, as she has since announced her retirement from acting on television. In a rare return to Twitter, Perrette revealed a new look that is a far cry from Abby’s.
Abby was instantly recognizable on NCIS due to her punk attire, adorable friendships, and remarkable expertise.
Perrette has now lived up to Abby’s distinct style by displaying a rather striking look of her own.
Perrette returned to Twitter this week for the first time since November, posting a selfie with her new brightly colored hairstyle looking rather rogue.
Perrette didn’t add a caption to the photo, but it didn’t take long for many of her 706.3k followers to weigh in on the look.
“As ALWAYS………..BREATH-TAKING!!!!!!” wrote Twitter user Brad Trageser. REMAIN SAFE…REMAIN YOU. “I adore you, gal.”
“Ur hair is so pretty,” @forensicgoth said, echoing Barbara Withrow, who added, “Well hello stranger! Christmas greetings. Oh, I adore it.”
“That is an impressive amount of hair!” commented @jessimdlc on the look. “Dancing Queen was all I could think about.”
“I luv ur hair,” Rose Petalz agreed, and Julia Cantrell added, “Love the color.”
Gillian Thomas sent her best wishes, adding, “Love it.” Pauley, Merry Christmas. Xx.”
And @Bechlovinmom1 made a reference to Perrette’s former NCIS alter ego: “Rainbow Abbey!” “We are missing you!!!” (sic)
While this may have marked Perrette’s return to social media, those hoping for an NCIS reunion will be disappointed.
Following the cancellation of her CBS sitcom Broke last year, the 52-year-old announced her retirement from acting.
Perrette co-starred in the series with Jaime Camil from Jane the Virgin and Natasha Leggero from Hoops, but CBS decided that one season was enough.
While Abby is still alive in the NCIS universe, Perrette announced after the conclusion of Broke that she would not be returning to the small screen to act in any show.
“I retired after NCIS but BROKE was important, beautiful,” she tweeted in July 2020.
“I finished my last dance and am very proud of it!” Everyone who knows me knew I was going to retire soon.
“I’m pleased with my work.” I adore you two! I AM NOW FREE!!! (Being the tiny, simple human that I am!) #Plants #RescuePets #Books.”
NCIS, on the other hand, is still going strong even without Abby on the team, as the drama enters its 19th season next year.
However, Perrette’s Abby isn’t the only series regular to leave recently, with series legend Mark Harmon stepping down from the role of Gibbs in 2021.
In recent seasons, actors such as Maria Bello as Jack Sloane and Emily Wickersham as Ellie Bishop have said their final goodbyes.
