Mark Harmon: Pam Dawber ‘NCIS’ Guesting Up to Her

Mark Harmon

“NCIS” marks its 200th episode Tuesday (2/7) with a storyline that will bring back past events (and stars) as Mark Harmon’s character sees his life flash before his eyes when he encounters a gunman in a diner.  The nice-guy actor-producer is always quick to credit his team when asked about the success of TV’s No. 1 series.  In fact, he lets it be known, he doesn’t think about himself and the rest of the cast and crew in terms of star and supporting players:  “I don’t see myself in life that way.  I know how to do the team thing,” explains the one-time UCLA quarterback.

“Everyone has a say, everyone gets to speak their minds.  Everything is out in the open.  If there is a problem, we talk about it and deal with it, so it’s a pretty rare way to work.”  Indeed.

On the other hand, it seems one person alone has a say when it comes to Mark’s wife, Pam Dawber, ever guesting on “NCIS.”  Here’s what he says about that:  “You know, she’s got her own career.  She’ll figure it out.  It’s not my decision.  It’s not my choice.  It’s her choice.  If she wants to come in on something, she’ll come in on something.”

ALSO:  Harmon is looking forward to reprising his role as Lucas Davenport, author John Sandford’s sleuthing Minneapolis Deputy Chief of Police — the part he played in the USA Network’s hit November movie, “Certain Prey.”  Chatting after the “NCIS” panel at the recent TV critics press tour, Harmon said, “There are plans to do another one, but whether that will be this hiatus, I don’t know at this point.  Part of my job here and commitment to the show is to come back somewhat rested.”  Fitting a TV movie during his seven-week seasonal hiatus doesn’t leave much time for R&R.

  3. reg: Mark and Jamie Lee

    I LOVE NCIS and watch it all the time. The people that have been replaced, so far, I feel has been a very good choice especially adding Director Vance. As for Jamie Lee Curtis I feel she should go back to selling yogurt. She tries to portray a female with a very high position and makes Mark take back seat. He WILL NEVER take back seat to any of them, especially her.

    Frankly.. who cares if Pam Dawber is on NCIS. Her only claim to anything was an old television show I dont even remember. It is Mark and the NCIS gang we all want to see!!!

    I would enjoy seeing Pam Dawber in a guest appearance on NCIS. I was a fan of the couple in the 80’s and its nice to see their marriage has lasted. It would be a nice “celebration” of their commitment to each other. I love all the NCiS cast, keep up the great work!
