NCIS star Mark Harmon recently celebrated 36 years of marriage to his wife Pam Dawber, whom he met through mutual friends in the early eighties before marrying in 1987. Their union was marked by an intimate wedding attended by a select few.

Before finding love with Pam, Mark was linked to several high-profile actors, leading to an intriguing dating history.

In 1979, Mark had a brief romance with his Flamingo Road co-star Morgan Fairchild, although little is known about their relationship. Fairchild is renowned for her television work, including appearances in shows like Days of Our Lives, Two and a Half Men, Roseanne, and Cybill. She is most recognized for her role as Chandler Bing’s mother, Nora, on Friends.

Christina Raines was another significant figure in Mark’s romantic history. Their relationship blossomed on the set of Flamingo Road in the early ’80s, where they portrayed on-screen lovers. Their romance lasted from 1980 to 1984, filled with admiration and fond memories.

In a 1986 People Magazine cover story, Mark reflected on the influence Christina had on him, acknowledging her role in teaching him to appreciate life’s simple joys. Christina also praised Mark’s professionalism and generosity as an actor in a 2014 interview, demonstrating their enduring mutual regard despite their split, reminiscent of a timeless Hollywood love story.

Regarding Heather Locklear, Mark addressed rumors of an affair during a 1986 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. He clarified misunderstandings surrounding comments that were misinterpreted as comparing dating Locklear to “having a cup of coffee.” Mark explained that while one relationship was significant and taught him to cherish life’s moments, the other was merely a brief encounter.
