ACTOR David McCallum was best known for his role on the CBS drama series NCIS as Chief Medical Examiner Donald ‘Ducky’ Mallard.

It was disclosed on September 25, 2023, that the 90-year-old died surrounded by his wife, Katherine, and family.

Who is NCIS star David McCallum’s wife, Katherine?

Katherine Carpenter is a model and actress who was born on November 30, 1944.

On September 16, 1967, at the Lutheran Church in New York, she married David McCallum, the British actor’s second marriage.

Before his death, Katherine and David had been married for 56 years.

David told Closer Weekly in 2017 that he and Katherine are “two halves of a whole.”

He continued: “We work well together, and when problems come along, we solve them. The best thing about a marriage is you find out what the other person wants and make damned sure they get it.”

In 2022, David explained to Radio Times that his wife’s success is what helped “keep the family running.”

“This is the life of an actor, particularly in the early years before you get a little better known: your main concern is to make enough money to keep the family running,” he told the outlet.

“Fortunately I married a young lady who was more talented than I was [Katherine] and so we shared the burden together and we’ve had a very successful relationship.”

Who was David McCallum?

David McCallum was a Scottish actor and musician best known for his appearances in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Colditz, and Sapphire & Steel on television.

David, who turned 90 on September 19, was allegedly accompanied by family.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of David McCallum and privileged that CBS was his home for so many years,” the CBS network said in a statement.

“David was a gifted actor and author, and beloved by many around the world. He led an incredible life, and his legacy will forever live on through his family and the countless hours on film and television that will never go away.

“We will miss his warmth and endearing sense of humor that lit up any room or soundstage he stepped onto, as well as the brilliant stories he often shared from a life well-lived. Our hearts go out to his wife Katherine and his entire family, and all those who knew and loved David.”
