David McCallum, an actor best known for his work in ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and “NCIS”, has passed away. He was 90.
His co-stars and family members rushed to send final well-wishes to McCallum, who leaves behind his wife, Katherine, as well as three children and eight grandchildren.
“David lived a great, full, long life,” NCIS co-star, Mark Harmon said. “I was in awe when I first met him and all of us on the show were honored to have toed a mark opposite him. My condolences go out to Katherine and his family.”
His scene partner, Brian Dietzen, also mourned the loss of a close friend, writing:
“I met David on my first day of work at NCIS. I was booked to work one day on the show, but David and I hit it off. Our scene turned out well and they invited me back for more scenes with this screen legend. Several more. Over the course of the next 20 years, David and I (along with our alter-ego’s Ducky and Jimmy) developed a deep friendship and love of our shared work. He was a joy to work with. Always had a smile. Always had something new to add to the page, and ALWAYS had the ability to steal every scene he was in.”
