Pauley Perrette (born March 27, 1969)[1] is an American actress, playing Abby Sciuto on NCIS. She is also a published writer and civil rights advocate.[2]


Early life

Perrette was born in New Orleans and raised all over the southern United States.[2] She told Craig Ferguson, on The Late Late Show, that she has lived in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, New York, New Jersey, and California.[6]


Perrette has worked for years in television and film, mostly doing commercials, voice-overs, music videos and short films, and worked as a bartender in New York City.[1][2] In 2001, as a recurring character introduced in Season 2 of Special Unit 2, she played Alice Cramer, the Unit's public relations person. She then landed her current role, playing Abby Sciuto, an eccentric forensic scientist, on NCIS, a TV series based on the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Perrette's initial appearances as the character were on two episodes of JAG aired in spring of 2003 that served as a backdoor pilot and introduced the characters. She has since appeared as Abby in two 2009 episodes of NCIS: Los Angeles.

She also appeared as a waitress at Cafe Nervosa in Frasier during season 4, and later guest starred in Season One of 24. She has made appearances in several films, including The Ring and Almost Famous.[3]

In addition to acting, Perrette is a published poet, writer, photographer, and spoken-word artist, a lover of music of all kinds, and a passionate advocate for civil rights. In 2007, she produced a documentary about U.S. civil rights attorney and author Mark Lane.[2][7]

In an interview with Craig Ferguson, who is the host of The Late, Late Show, she said she has a lifelong crime obsession. She was an undergrad student in sociology, psychology, and criminal science. She started her master's degree in criminal science before ending up in the entertainment industry. She now plays a forensic scientist, her former career goal.[8]


Perrette recorded her song, "Fear" (co-written with Tom Polce) under the name "Stop Making Friends". The song was recorded for NCIS: The Official TV Soundtrack which was released on February 10, 2009. "Fear" was featured in a Season 6 episode of NCIS, according to the soundtrack's website.[9]

Prior to this, Perrette was the lead singer in the Los Angeles-based all female band Lo-Ball using the stage name Pauley P.[10] A song by Lo-Ball, "Can't Get Me Down", can be heard during the movie Legally Blonde.[11] Perrette appeared in the "The Unnamed Feeling" video for heavy metal band Metallica from their album St. Anger.

Personal life

Perrette supports many charitable organizations, including animal rescue, the American Red Cross, civil rights, and gay rights. Pauley and her long term boyfriend, Michael Bosman, held their wedding in Hollywood on Valentine's Day, 2009.[4][12] The event benefitted charities, such as Project Angel Food.[5] She was married for three years to actor and musician Coyote Shivers. She has been granted restraining orders against him since leaving him.[13]

Perrette toured the real NCIS offices on September 30, 2005, accompanied by an Entertainment Tonight camera crew. During the tour, NCIS Regional Forensic Lab director Dawn Sorenson (Abby's real life counterpart) told Perrette, "You make us all look good, so we're grateful."[14]

Perrette worked with America's Most Wanted in February 2004 to present the city of Prattville, Alabama with a check for $10,000, which will be used to supplement the reward offer for information leading to the arrest of the person who killed Shannon Paulk.[15] Paulk was from Prattville, Alabama, near where Perrette had once lived as a child. Perrette also donated $10,000 to Detroit law enforcement officials to be used as a reward for information regarding the disappearance/murder of Raven Jeffries,[16] a 7-year-old Detroit girl. (Perrette's husband was from Detroit.)[17] The story originally aired on America's Most Wanted on September 8, 2007 on Fox.

During the fall of 2008, Perrette opposed the California referendum item Proposition 8, writing a public letter urging Californians to vote against the measure.[18] She is a member of the Hollywood United Methodist Church.[19]

Perrette does not use any social networking sites like MySpace or Twitter. Profiles on such sites are impersonators.[20]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
