The renowned movie star passed away just a few days after celebrating his 90th birthday, leaving behind an incredible legacy that always brought joy to fans when he graced the screen. Let’s take a moment to reflect on McCallum’s greatest milestones and career moments, reminiscing about his younger years when he was a global sex symbol, and learn how he is remembered by his co-stars.

CBS announced that David McCallum died of natural causes at New York Presbyterian Hospital. His passing, which occurred on Monday, was peaceful as he was surrounded by loved ones. McCallum was widely loved for his role in the hit show NCIS, where he starred for an impressive 20 years. His character, Ducky, became one of the most beloved characters on the show.

McCallum’s dedication to his craft was truly inspiring to the cast, especially in portraying the character of Donald Mallard. He went above and beyond, even attending medical examiner conventions and delivering a lecture at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in 2005. In 2019, due to his age, McCallum couldn’t keep up with full-time filming, but his co-star Michael Weatherly emphasized how he made every moment count, both in life and on set.

Michael Weatherly expressed the sentiment that the work on NCIS wouldn’t be the same without the actors he’d worked with for years. Despite not being part of the original cast in 2022, McCallum remained an integral part of the NCIS family. Brian Dietzen, who worked closely with McCallum, described him as a mentor, a great scene partner, and a dear friend.

Plans for McCallum’s return to the screen in season 21 were in the works, with him potentially appearing in four or five episodes. Unfortunately, due to recent writers and actors strikes, NCIS has not yet begun production on season 21, and fans won’t see McCallum in the new episodes.

Mark Harmon, another co-star, shared that David McCallum lived a fulfilling and long life with numerous achievements. Reflecting on their time working together, Harmon expressed how honored they all were to have shared scenes with him.

David McCallum’s career spanned an incredible seven decades, with nearly 100 films and TV shows to his name. One of his most notable works was portraying the cool secret agent Ilya Kuryakin in the ’60s spy show “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” The show’s popularity even led to several films based on the character.

McCallum’s role as a family man was equally important to him. As a father of five children and a grandfather to six grandsons, he took great pride in his family. His son shared a heartbreaking message, describing him as the kindest, coolest, and most loving father who always prioritized family.

In 2019, when announcing his updated schedule on NCIS, McCallum expressed gratitude for the chance to combine work with family life, allowing him to spend time with his wife, children, and grandchildren.

As the world bids farewell to David McCallum, his legacy will live on in our memories forever. He brought joy to audiences worldwide, not only through his remarkable performances but also through his dedication to family and his impact on those who had the privilege of working with him.
