‘NCIS’ Cast Member Spends Vacation With Real-Life Forensic Experts

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most people spend their summer vacation trying to get away from the job – but not NCIS cast member Pauley Perrette.

The actress – who plays goth-rocking forensics specialist Abby Sciuto on the CBS drama – spent the summer driving across America from Los Angeles to New York City and back.

At one point, she stopped in Washington, D.C., to meet her real-life counterparts and shoot the breeze.

Perrette was a little bit unsure about how the real forensics freaks would review the show but she needn’t have worried. As she puts it, “They were really excited and accommodating but I think that’s because we’re super careful about accuracy.”

The actress even met a few folks with tattoos just like her character but admits, “they were interns.”

Perrette has since returned to the NCIS set and the show makes its season premiere on Tuesday (Sep. 20).
