Actress Pauley Perrette, who plays the quirky punk rock oriented character, Abby Sciuto, on the smash hit CBS crime drama NCIS, is now the popular most TV actor/actress according to Q Scores. She even tops other lead cast members such as Mark Harmon (#4) on the show, making her true money in the bank for the show. Brazilian actress Cote de Pablo, also from NCIS, came in as second most popular in the latest survey. British actor David McCallum(former 1960’s MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. heartthrob) is #5 and Michael Weatherly # 7 , are both also from NCIS as well.
One notable non-NCIS actor to make the list was Jim Parson #3 from THE BIG BANG THEORY, which will likely take over the top spot as the most popular CBS comedy this upcoming season. Parson’s “Sheldon” character is a true audience favorite and absolutely hilarious. It’s certainly the greatest character that Parsons has ever played during his aspiring acting career.
ABC did manage to get at least one good spot in the top 10 list, as CASTLE actor Nathan Fillion came in at #6 on the Q Score list.
Pauley Perrette has an interesting life story. She was born in New Orleans, yet lived all throughout the South, acquiring a criminal justice degree along the way. Yet, her background in law enforcement has proven valuable to role as Abby in NCIS. She’s the crime lab scientist and computer programming expert, who’s a quirky genius. She even put up $10,000 of her own money to help solve a case featured on AMERICA’S MOST WANTED that she found very troubling.
Pauley Perrette is also known for being far and away one of the nicest actors on TV by far. In true Pauley Perrette niceness fashion, she immediately thanked her fans so much for naming her the top actor on Primetime TV on Twitter. “Just found out I was voted #1 most popular star of primetime TV? Um. Thanks guys So honored and humbled. I love my job & you”.,she Tweeted. – Well, we can’t think of anyone much nicer to be so honored, Pauley. You’re the best!
