So get to know the lovable and talented star better with these 10 things you never knew about Pauley Perrette:
10. America’s Most Wanted
Perrette has often stated that along with her lifelong fascination of crime, sociology and pyschology, she has always loved America’s Most Wanted and in 2007 she became directly involved in the show. Perrette joined the show to try to help find the killers of two young girls, one from Detroit and one from Alabama and also put up $ 20,000 of her own money for reward funds.” I’m a huge America’s Most Wanted fan and I saw this show about these two different little girls who were murdered, one in Detroit and one in Prattville. My boyfriend’s family is from Detroit, and I’ve got a whole bunch of family in Prattville. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So I contacted America’s Most Wanted and asked if I could post a reward in the cases. They asked if we could do a show about it, which was kind of weird because I’m usually more private about altruism,” she said of the experience. Later, she asked the show for help in finding whomever killed her own personal friend Lisa Williamson after she was murdered in 2007 and her home was set on fire.
9. The Band
Perrette is not only a talented actor but she is also a successful poet, writer, and singer, and before hitting it big as an actor her focus was on music. She was the lead singer of the L.A. grunge all-female band Lo-Ball and went by the stage name Pauley P. One of the band’s songs “Can’t Get Me Down” was featured in the hit movie Legally Blonde and her song “Fear” also called “Stop Making Friends” was recorded for the NCIS official soundtrack which was released in 2009.
