The Toronto Star posted an article that includes some quotes from Michael Weatherly and Pauley Perrette that may explain (or may not), why Cote left NCIS. As always, we support her in every way, no matter what reason she left she show!

Still, Wickersham has some big shoes to fill. De Pablo’s arrival led to a sharp upturn in popularity for the series. As Harmon noted, she had been with the cast eight seasons. “That’s high school and college.”

There was the usual speculation at first that de Pablo’s departure was a negotiating ploy; that she was holding out for more money. All involved insist that that’s not the case. The actress simply wanted a break from the series.

“It’s a very tough commitment,” says Weatherly, who adds, “Boo-hoo, go cry in a bag of money.”

The New York native can never stay serious for too long. He quotes Oscar Wilde’s line, “Life is too important to be taken seriously.”

Weatherly suggested that de Pablo was simply at a different stage in her personal life than some of her more settled cast members, “No weddings, no funerals, no birthdays,” he said of the long hours and total commitment a 22-episode network TV drama demands. “You’re just deployed.”

While Weatherly and others seem to have their lives lined up for now, “Cote’s still figuring out the life part,” he says. “She just wanted a break.”

He says he’ll miss her sense of humour on the set. “She is cosmically funny,” he says. “We never really saw that side of Ziva because she was always kicking people in the face.”

“At the end of the day, not only can you not make decisions for other people, but often you can’t understand theirs,” says Perrette, who says she would not leave her “dream job” under any circumstances. “Part of the problem with the rest of us being left or saddled with answering this question to other people is that it’s really not an answer.”
There’s no cover-up, there’s no drama, “I guess it was just a life decision,” says Perrette.

Asked what he thought de Pablo should do next, Weatherly, once again, went for the funny.
“I’d put her in a space suit: a very tight space suit,” he says. “Oh, oh, somebody just optioned that. We just sold, ‘Sci-Fi Ziva.’”

    An excellent actress, perfect exotic beauty, an incredible talent, with facial expression and body in harmony, qualities that no one can deny, the lady has them, because you have already proved what they are capable. Other stations or studios will recognize their potential, and probably others receive invitations to work in your best interest and the best that ever you did until today. For their co-workers that you respect and admire. For these and other reasons that you should have, I ask you to reconsider and go back to your fans who either want to see you in action again, with the character who consecrated him, globally, DAVID ZIVA. Kiss bye. Leila De Figueiredo

    I have to say that I was never really very fond of Kate on the show but Cote De Pablo you are really a diffrent story. Your charactor has been addictive from the very begining. I have seen you come and seen you go but always new you would be back. This new girl has no standing on the team. She is so out of place it makes no sence. On another note I just have to say if I was tony on your final show I would have turned around and came rite back. I would have never been able to leave the woman I love like that. It would have haunted my heart. If I were any part of the people in charge of that show I would have gave you whatever you wanted to keep you. I do have to thank you for the years you did give us with your wonderfully gifted talent on the show. I will have to say though I don’t think I will be watching the show anymore, not any of the shows with bishop. I will be lost in the re-runs I hopes that you will return. Much love me Bonita’.
