Actress Pauley Perrette is known for playing the gothic loving, eccentric forensic scientist Abby Sciuto on the hit television show "NCIS". She is adored on the show by her NCIS colleagues and also by her numerous fans who tune in to see her almost every week. Entertainment insiders know her as a very talented actress whose dramatic range and physical beauty is at times underrated and unappreciated because of how well she plays her role as a hyper, eccentric crime lab worker. Unfortunately for the New Orleans born actress the drama in her life is not only limited to her work on television as it is ongoing in her personal life thanks to her ex-husband.
The actress recently had to take time to respond to allegations from her ex-husband that she had been harrassing him and intentionally tried to "ruin him financially, physically and emotionally." She has responded through her lawyer that he is solely responsible for his situation.
The situation has become public news as she has been granted restraining orders against him as the legal issues with her ex-husband, Francis "Coyote" Shivers have been ongoing for the past ten years.
The actress has seemingly moved on with her life as she is engaged to Thomas Arklie and is happy while she continues to act in a feature role on NCIS. Many in the entertainment world would love for her to announce the date of a wedding with her fiancee but the LGBT advocate has pledged not to get married until gay people in America can legally be married.
Pauley Perrette may be waiting for a court decision about the civil rights of gay people to get married but her actions and superior acting on NCIS shows that she is not waiting on a court decision concerning her ex-husband to live her life or affect her performances on screen that have made her a fan favourite on the small screen.
