Everyone knows Pauley Perrette, who would play the role of Abby Sciuto on the hit show NCIS from 2003 to 2018. During a 2015 interview with\u00a0Studio 10 Australia, she was asked how much fans expect Pauley to be like Abby. \u201cPeople who know me really well don\u2019t think that I\u2019m like Abby at all. And people that don\u2019t know me, they're like, \u2018Oh, you\u2019re just like her.\u2019 And I\u2019m like, \u2018not really,\u2019\u201d she says.\r\n\r\nHowever, she did gain a bit of inspiration to play the role! This inspiration would also affect Abby's mannerisms in the show and it comes from Pauley's real-life rescue dog.\r\nHer rescue dog CiCi claims all credit here\r\n\r\n\r\n"I patterned everything [Abby] does physically after this rescue dog that I had named CiCi. So, the way Abby stands\u2013she stands very upright\u2014and the way she cocks her head, and the way she turns, and the way she walks\u2013everything is done exactly like this dog," Pauley explains. "I\u2019m not like that. I have terrible posture and I\u2019m nowhere near as alert as Abby is."\r\nPauley has truly gone above and beyond for this role. Not just with the inspiration of her rescue dog! She also sacrifices her health at one point for the NCIS role.\r\nPauley's hair-dying disaster\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nEven though many suspect that Pauley would want nothing to do with NCIS ever again, back in 2015 she did tell Queen Latifah how much she loved playing Abby. She went as far for the role as dying her naturally blonde hair black, which is a pretty huge change!\r\n\r\n"So, on that day, I dyed my hair. It was the first day back shooting on NCIS. I dyed my hair on Wednesday, and I went to work at five in the morning on a Thursday. I worked all day long, went home, and woke up the next morning and my head was getting bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger," Pauley explains. She would end up having an allergic reaction from the dye!\r\nShe has clear dedication toward her TV roles\r\n\r\n\r\nPauley says that she kept her hair black because she didn't want to let fans down. \u201cA lot of people were like \u2018Oh no, go blonde.\u2019 And I\u2019m like, I don\u2019t think the world is ready for a blonde Abby. I\u2019m not ready for a blonde Abby,\u201d she says.\r\n\r\nSounds like Pauley had a lot of dedication to this role! We commend her for that! And what an adorable story about her rescue dog.
