Considering that NCIS is on its 15th season – we’re celebrating! Not many shows have such a shelf life, but we have the genius writers to thank and characters to worship. Particularly the leading ladies of NCIS, and why is that? We want to honor a show that puts females front and center, in strong roles that others can look up to and admire. In a time of wild unrest, we thank the feminist heart of NCIS – therefore we’ve pulled together the most memorable ladies of NCIS and what they’re doing off-script. Just take a look for yourself!
Pauley Perrette as Abby Sciuto
And we begin with the one and only, the eccentric forensic scientist, Abby Sciuto. Come on, guys. There is no better way to kick off this list. Apart from acting, the 48 year old is also a published writer, singer, and a huge civil rights advocate. Unfortunately we’ll have to say goodbye to our Caf-Pow chugging Abby as she’s set to leave the show at the end of season 15. However when it comes to Abby, well here’s what Perrette had to say, “[I] wouldn’t call herself anything but Abby…What she represents is a smart, capable chick that cannot be reduced to a stereotype.” Preach, girl, preach.
