Michael Weatherly, the popular actor who left NCIS back in 2016, took to Instagram to address Perrette's departure and to share his goodbye message
Weatherly, who played the fan-favorite role of Tony DiNozzo, posted a video of himself and told that he would be watching Perrette's final episode with 'a box of Kleenex.'
He further captioned his video by writing: "I will be watching #abby tonight on #ncis and telling my kids,'...it’s ok. It’s ok.' Big kiss!"
While Weatherly sent the emotional message to his former co-star via social media, his character, DiNozzo, called in during the episode and wished Abby, Perrette's character, well through McGee, which is played by Sean Murray.
Responding to Weatherly's message on Instagram, Perrette took to Twitter and expressed her affection for the actor. 'I love you @M_Weatherly But you know that, and so does everyone else. My Brother,' she wrote.
Another co-star, Wilmer Valderrama also posted a tweet with a goodbye message for Perrette saying that she was a 'light' and she made him feel like family.
