Pauley Perrette (images | YouTube channel | Twitter)
Hometown: New Orleans, La., according to her Wikipedia profile.
Best Known For: Pauley is best known for her work on shows whose titles are acronyms: She's been with NCIS since the beginning, indeed even earlier than that, appearing in the JAG episodes that served as a backdoor pilot for the series. She's guest-starred on NCIS: Los Angeles as well, playing the same character. And before that, she appeared on an episode of CSI (but not as the same character).
That's kept her busy for the last almost 10 years, though her résumé extends back to an ABC Afternoon Special in 1994 and includes a number of indie films (including Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous and My First Mister with Leelee Sobieski and Albert Brooks), the big-studio horror film The Ring, and an appearance in a Metallica video.
Humble Beginnings: As I said: An ABC Afternoon Special starts her list of screen credits. She's appeared on Dawson's Creek and 24, Tea Leoni's sitcom The Naked Truth and Kim Delaney's legal drama Philly, Stephen Bochco's legal drama Murder One and The Drew Carey Show, and even the Jennifer Love Hewitt-fronted Party of Five spinoff The Time of Your Life.
Not the Courteney Cox Factor: Pauley's a singer as well as an actress, though her work so far has turned up on TV (NCIS) or film (Legally Blonde) soundtracks.

her NCIS co-star, of course.
