Pauley Perrette, who is best known for her role as Abby Sciuto on NCIS, left the show in 2018 after 15 years. Fans were shocked by her departure, especially since her character's exit was explained as a resignation after an assassination attempt. However, rumors started circulating that the real reason she left was due to a falling out with her co-star Mark Harmon. This speculation was further fueled when it was revealed that Abby's farewell to Gibbs, played by Harmon, was done through a letter instead of in person.

Since leaving NCIS, Perrette briefly appeared on the short-lived comedy series, Broke, before officially retiring from acting in 2020. She recently shared that she suffered from some serious health issues but is currently doing better.

Perrette's retirement has allowed her to reflect on her career and relationships. She revealed on Twitter that leaving Hollywood behind has helped her discover who her true friends are. She also changed her iconic gothic look by dyeing her naturally blonde hair in bright rainbow colors.

In addition to her personal journey, Perrette has become a vocal activist, particularly on civil rights issues.

Despite the ups and downs, Perrette remains grateful and full of faith. She has overcome challenges, including a "massive stroke" that she had one year ago. Her positive attitude and resilience shine through as she continues to navigate life after NCIS.
