It was hard for viewers to say goodbye to Anthony DiNozzo aka “Michael Weatherly” when the actor finally called it quits. The audience finally said goodbye to DiNozzo after seeing him for 13 seasons. The reason for Weatherly’s departure was he wanted to try something new.
Interestingly, Weatherly also reported feeling burnt out after his long commitment to “NCIS”. Another major role Weatherly has had was playing Logan Cale in “Dark Angel”. Since leaving “NCIS”, he has become the lead actor in the CBS legal drama “Bull”, where he plays a psychologist that helps firms to select the best jurors.
Pauley Perrette — Abigail Sciuto
Apparently, Pauley Perrette, who played the charismatic and quirky onscreen goth, Abbey Sciuto, finally called it quits on “NCIS” because she was scared of her co-star Mark Harmon. Yikes! According to Perrette, it took her a long time to open up about her fears and to get the courage to leave “NCIS”.
Since her “NCIS” days, Perrette has taken up a major role in the comedy “Broke”. The actress in her earlier days starred in films such as “Almost Famous” and was a voice actor for the TV series “Fantasy Hospital”.
Anthony “Tony” DiNozzo Jr.
After working his way up, Anthony DiNozzo eventually managed to become second in command. He started out as a probationary officer but after much hard work and dedication, he became Special Agent Leroy Gibbs’, right-hand man. DiNozzo joined the team in 2001 and fifteen years later, he finally called it quits.
Once his daughter, Talia, was born, DiNozzo was a changed man – and he wanted nothing more than to settle down with his family. This character won many of the hearts of the audience, especially with his relationship with his coworker, Ziva David.
Dr. Jeanne Benoit
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo certainly knows how to pick them – or rather knew how to pick them. To be fair, DiNozzo had started dating Dr. Jeanne Benoit as a part of an undercover operation.
In Season 4, DiNozzo and Benoit met and slowly their onscreen romance began to blossom. The only problem was that her father was an international and powerful arms dealer who DiNozzo was trying to get intel on. Naturally, things didn’t go too well when the truth finally came to light but still DiNozzo’s and Benoit’s romance won over many viewers.
Scottie Thompson — Dr. Jeanne Benoit
