NCIS embraces family connections among its cast members, with some actors getting to work with their own relatives. This approach is particularly prominent in recent seasons, with many family members of the cast making guest appearances on the show.

Sean Murray, who plays Special Agent Timothy McGee, has numerous family members involved in the show. His stepfather, Donald P. Bellisario, is a prominent TV producer and writer, known for shows like “Magnum P.I.” and “NCIS.” Sean’s brother is also a producer on the show.

Mark Harmon’s family has made appearances on the show as well. In the 18th season, his wife, Pam Dawber, played a character, and their son, Sean Thomas Harmon, has had a recurring role on the show, often playing a younger version of Gibbs in flashback episodes.

Daniela Ruah, who portrays Kensi Blye, is married to Eric Christian Olsen’s brother, who also serves as Olsen’s stunt double on the show.

In a special episode, several main actors’ real mothers played poker together in a casino scene, a heartwarming experience that brought joy to the cast and their moms. The show went the extra mile to make the mothers feel welcome on set, and the actors would love to do it again.

NCIS takes family connections to a new level, making it a unique and enjoyable aspect of the show.
