Who did Pauley Perrette play on NCIS?

Pauley starred on NCIS as Abby Sciutto from 2003 to 2018 before leaving after an alleged falling out with co-star Mark Harmon. After being asked if she would ever return to the show on Xu, formerly known as Twitter, she wrote: “NO I’M NOT COMING BACK! EVER! (Please stop asking?) I’m terrified of Harmon and him attacking me. I have nightmares about it. I have a new show that’s SAFE AND HAPPY! You’re going to love it!”

She added: “You think I didn’t expect the backlash? You misunderstood me. THIS happened to my crew member and I fought like hell to stop it from happening again! To protect my crew! And then I got physically attacked for saying NO!? and I lost my job.”

At the time, CBS released its own statement saying, “Pauley Perrette had a great run on NCIS and we will all miss her,” it said. “Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace issue. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a solution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all of our shows.”
