US actress Pauley Perrette posted on Twitter that she is “terrified” of NCIS star Mark Harmon and will not return to the show.
She also tweeted photos of what she claimed are of an NCIS crew member with stitches and a black eye.
“You think I didn’t expect blow back? You got me wrong. THIS happened To my crew member and I fought like hell to keep it from happening again! To protect my crew! And then I was physically assaulted for saying NO!? And I lost my job,” she wrote.
In May 2018 she implied she suffered “multiple physical assaults” on set.
CBS responded to the issue in a statement saying, “Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her. Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”
Some reports claim tension arose between the pair when a dog belonging to Harmon allegedly attacked a crew member on set in 2016.
Harmon has not responded publicly to Perrette’s claims.
