Pauley Perrette Reveals The Real Reason You Won’t See Abby Sciuto Back in ‘NCIS’
There is a throng of procedural-drama shows out there but one that stands out is “NCIS,” evidence of which is the span of its run, totaling 16 seasons up to date. In fact, it is the 7th longest-running primetime TV series in the United States, and in matters like this, ratings are all or nothing. This means that the script and the execution are therefore effective, or else it would have been canceled a long time ago.
Pauley Perrette’s Exit
One of the driving forces behind the highly celebrated project was Pauley Perrette, who avid fans of “NCIS” would know played the Goth yet very intelligent forensic scientist Abby Sciuto in the CBS show since its inception in 2013.
That’s why when she announced she was leaving the show in 2017, everyone, particularly the supporters of the fan-fave character, was shocked and was wondering what the real reason behind the departure might be.
There were rumors that Pauley was launching a skincare brand so she needed to focus on that and there were speculations that the network was mad at her. However, she broke her silence last year and revealed that there was no truth to the hearsays by airing startling claims and a cryptic message that was addressed to someone she didn’t name.
Through a series of tweets, she spoke of a “very rich” and powerful machine that spreads false news about her, but that she just kept silent to protect her crew.
Unimpressive CBS Employees
CBS issued a statement afterward, revealing that Pauley reported a “workplace concern,” to which, it said, it took seriously and that it worked with the actress for a resolution. Interestingly, the network had some questionable employees, including Leslie Moonves, former chair and CEO, who had to vacate the position after he was accused of multiple assaults.
This was followed by multiple names that face accusations, too, like CBS anchor Charlie Rose and actor Michael Weatherly.
But this time, Pauley didn’t hold back when she name-dropped someone from the show that was the reason she would not be coming back – Mark Harmon, the executive producer and lead star who plays agent Leroy Gibbs. The 50-year-old said that she was terrified of her former co-star and his attacks, so much so that she had nightmares about it. She went on to say that she’s happy and safe now with her show.
Pauley followed this up with a photo of a person with a black eye, who she said was a crew, and added that she fought hard to keep things like this from happening once more. According to reports, it was caused by Mark’s dog. Furthermore, she claimed she was physically assaulted for “saying NO” and lost her job. This tweet was taken down immediately after it was posted.
