It came as a rude shock when the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) show paid tribute to Harriet Marguiles earlier in the first week of November. In its nineteenth season, the NCIS paid a glowing tribute to Marguiles after her passing on. Marguiles was the audience liaison officer and had worked with the team for almost two decades. So, it became emotional when fans saw the tribute coupled with the news that Agent Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) was caught up in the investigations.
Harriet Marguiles was the former production assistant and audience liaison, and she is popular with fans because of her off-the-camera involvement. The show inscribed a title card which read: “In memory of our friend and colleague Harriet Marguiles. We will miss you.”
