Who is NCIS star Mark Harmon married to?

Mark Harmon has been on NCIS the longest out of all his co-stars, first joining back in 2003.

His character Gibbs has been a constant on the series and has so far starred in 398 episodes.

However, beyond the show, Harmon himself was well-known long before joining the procedural.

Aside from the show, he is best known for playing Dr Robert Caldwell in St. Elsewhere in the 1980s.

This role also led to the star being named the Sexiest Man Alive by People in 1986.

Harmon also got married to his wife Pam Dawber around this time as well, tying the knot in March, 1987.

Dawber is also an actor and is best-known for her role as Mindy McConnell in Mork & Mindy, which she starred in from 1978 until 1982 opposite Robin Williams.

She has also played Samantha Russell in My Sister Sam, starred in the 1992 film Stay Tuned and appeared in the 1999 film I’ll Remember April alongside Harmon.

Together, Harmon and Dawber have two sons together called Sean Thomas Harmon and Ty Christian Harmon.

Sean Thomas even starred as a young Gibbs in five episodes of NCIS.

However, the couple is notoriously private and tend to stay out of the public eye.

Although, Harmon did open up about their marriage to People in 2019, speaking about their 31 years together.

He said: “We were both in our thirties when we got married, so hopefully the stupid stuff we did earlier.

“That’s probably the closest I have to what the key is.”

He also revealed to the publication why he wears a distinctive eagle-shaped wedding band on his ring finger.
Harmon explained: “We think it was my grandfather’s, because it was in a box of things that my dad left.

“I wear it or a few others I have because when I’m not shooting.

“I like to make sure I have something on my ring finger, because I’m proud to be married, and I’m proud of who I’m married to. I’m just so proud of her.”

Dawber has also opened up about their marriage in the past to Entertainment Tonight.

She told the publication in 2016 about having to make career decisions and sacrifices to put their family first.
She said: “I don’t think two people can work all the time in show business and stay married.

“I was in a number one show. I had my own deal. I got to do Broadway. I got to do musical theater. I got to do cartoon voices.

“I did everything you can do in this business, and then I had children and it’s like, ‘I’m not going to chase this fame thing.’

“I wanted to drive my kids to school. I wanted to be there for their birthdays and bring cupcakes and donuts and do the school festivals and all that, and I did.

“I got to teach in their art class and so it was a different life then and I was very happy to do it.”

NCIS season 18 is expected to return later this year.
