Sasha Alexander (Caitlin Todd)
Since leaving NCIS after the show's third season, the actress went on to notably star in the TNT crime drama Rizzoli & Isles as Dr. Maura Isles; that series ended in 2016. For her role as Isles, Alexander won a People's Choice Award.
David McCallum (Dr. Donald Mallard)
McCallum has continued to play the role of NCIS chief medical examiner Ducky since the series premiere.
