NCIS is one of the longest running shows on CBS, and Mark Harmon has maintained his lead on the Navy crime solving series for the majority of the 18-season run. Fans of the show and its silver fox of a leading man were pleased when his real-life, long-time wife, Pam Dawber, made her debut on the series this past week. Dawber, who has her own Hollywood history and played opposite Robin Williams for years on Mork & Mindy, has spoken out about how she feels about finally joining her husband on screen.
Fans will be pleased to hear that, according to Pam Dawber, her husband Mark Harmon is a delight to work with. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dawber praised Harmon for being so supportive off camera, even though their on-screen relationship is a little odd. Here it is in her own words:
It’s a good thing Mark Harmon is so encouraging of his wife, because apparently it took quite a lot for Pam Dawber to take on a role on NCIS, and she actually felt some anxiety over it. In the same interview, Dawber spoke about her relationship with Hollywood at this point in her career and why she decided to take on the role in the CBS drama. In Dawber’s own words:
She’s doing it, alright! Pam Dawber’s character Marcie first appeared in the most recent episode of NCIS, but she still has 3 more episodes in her story arc. That means we’ve got three more weeks of some husband/wife on-screen chemistry and, now that we know Mark Harmon is so supportive behind the scenes, it’s even more endearing of a team-up.
