    It's upsetting to report that one of NCIS's recurring actors has passed away.

    Michael Gilden, who played Pauley Perrette's love interest on the show, died last Tuesday. As you can imagine, everyone is devestated by this news. He was a wonderful actor and a welcomed addition to the show. He will surely be missed.

    Please keep Michael and his wife, Meredith, in your thoughts and prayers.

    That is so sad!  I wonder how many episodes have already been filmed with him in it?  And hpw they're going to deal with this on the show.  I feel so bad for hois wife.  Do you know how he died?

    That's what I was thinking when I found out, she will be devastated. It's so sad and suicide...That's just awful. Now for his death to be so public too, a terrible thing for his family to go through. The cast and crew of NCIS must be having a hard time too, especially Pauley. I'm sure we're all thinking of his family and friends and the cast and crew of NCIS. Abbyforever, hang on to that banner in your sig

    My God. I can't believe it. That's awful. I loved the character of Marty so much; he brought such a cool, unique character to the show. And Michael was such a good actor; he'd done so much great work throughout his life.

    And no one should have to have lived a life where taking your own is the only conceivable option.

    My thoughts and condolences are with Michael's friends and family.

    I heard about this yesterday and it is soo sad - didn't know he commited suicide, nobody should have to feel like they have to do that!

    I feel so sad for his wife and family - I don't know how I'd deal with that if it was somebody I loved!

    What's going to happen? That's a horrible thing to have to do! Did they suspect anything while filming or was it just so sudden? You were just on NCIS! People like you! You have a loving family! How could you kill yourself?!
