“Bull” star and “NCIS” alum, Michael Weatherly, has gained an adoring audience on CBS and worldwide overall. Further, the actor possesses a lot of the comical and down-to-earth traits that his characters do in their requisite shows. Weatherly demonstrated those comic capabilities in his most recent Twitter post as he wished fans a very Happy Thanksgiving. In it, he encouraged others to simply be grateful for this life overall. Check out the actor’s message below.

As he states in the clip, Michael Weatherly shared his personal statement from the set of “Bull,” putting an emphasis on gratitude. He addresses international fans with, “If you’re not in the United States and you’re wondering what I’m talking about…we’re grateful. Have gratitude for this gift we call life.”

Michael Weatherly fans took to the comments section of the post to share their own Thanksgiving well-wishes with the actor.

“Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family,” one fan wrote back to the “Bull” actor. “So much to be grateful for,” shared other fans.

Likewise, from our Outsider family to yours, we wish you the happiest of Thanksgiving holidays.

Michael Weather Reflects on Former Co-Star’s Signficance

While Michael Weatherly encourages “Bull” and “NCIS” fans alike to be grateful for life this holiday season, he has also expressed gratitude previously in time spent with another “NCIS” alum, Pauley Perrette.

Like Weatherly, Perrette, who previously played the role of forensic scientist Abby Sciuto, debuted as one of “NCIS’s” original cast members following the hit show’s pilot in 2003.

Years later, Weatherly expressed his thoughts concerning the Abby Sciuto actress and her efforts as both an actress and an “NCIS” character. Ultimately, he stated that Pauley Perrette was probably the most important person on the show.

“How awesome is the energy of Pauley Perrette and her steadfast, almost impossible [drive to help people and animals],” the actor commented during an earlier interview. For dedicated fans of “NCIS,” you’re then well aware that Perrette’s compassion as an actress actively overflowed into the character of Abby within the hit CBS show.

Michael Weatherly further added, “I’m amazed at her energy…I think Pauley is an extraordinary lady.”

The “Bull” actor and “NCIS” alum then went on to describe Perrette’s passion for philanthropic and well-meaning causes. Alongside her starring, and no doubt challenging, role on “NCIS,” Weatherly shared how the actress actively participates in animal rights efforts, women’s rights efforts, and more. “She really puts her heart on the line,” the actor stated.

And as a star that has won over the hearts of millions, the actor’s recognition surely did not go unnoticed by Perrette herself.
