Grandparents Tell ‘NCIS’ Star: ‘You Goth Girl!’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actress Pauley Perrette is making the world safe for goths thanks to her work on NCIS.

Perrette plays tattooed forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on the CBS series and is proud of the mark her tattooed character is leaving on its audience.

Although most movies portray tattooed people with black lipstick as thieves, she’s proud that her character shows a different side and proves goths are “capable of genius.”

In her words, “Usually any alt-culture gets portrayed in a negative but, in reality, people like Abby are the artists in our society, the creative people.”

Perrette has a lot of fans who are goths and punks but says her favorite letters are from grandparents who say her character “makes them understand their grandkids.”
