SPOILER ALERT if you haven't seen NCIS from three weeks ago. It opens with Gibbs and Ducky watching American Pickers, and they notice that one of the artifacts being looked at by Mike Wolfe, appears to be a murder weapon from a cold case. I was surprised to see that Mike was starring in the show and wondered if we would see two of television's hottest actresses together - Abby from NCIS, and Danielle from AmericanPickers. Alas, it was not to be - except in bobble head land.
Abigail Sciuto - Abby - is by far my favourite character from the CBS Television NCIS/JAG franchise. Abby, played by the incredible Pauley Perrette, first caught my eye in the JAG episode 'Ice Queen', which introduced us to the NCIS gang.
Abby Sciuto is a forensic scientist at the Naval Criminal Investigative Service at the DC office where her expertise helps solve the most complicated cases. One of television's most popular actors, Perrette has solidified her place as an actress, and more importantly, as an advocate for women, children, and animals rights. Sadly, she will soon be leaving the series.
Danielle Colby from American Pickers was born in Davenport, Iowa, headquarters of Antique Archeology. While living with her family in Chicago, she attended a burlesque performance starring comedian Margaret Cho and dancer Satan's Angel. This prompted in her a desire to become a burlesque dancer; and, after she moved back with her family to the Quad Cities area of Iowa, she created the professional burlesque troupe Burlesque Le Moustache, with nine performers, including Colby herself under the stage name Dannie Diesel. Colby owned a burlesque academy called Dannie Diesel's Bump 'n' Grind Academy in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago and she had been a close friend of Mike Wolfe for a decade before the concept of the show had even been developed. Once the show was sold to the History Channel, Wolfe asked Colby to work at the office of the antique shop Antique Archaeology, home of American Pickers, which premiered on History, formerly known as the History Channel, on January 18, 2010. #HalifaxAuthor #ncis #abbysciuto #americanpickers #daniellecolby #cbs #history #jethrogibbs #pauleyperrette
