Risked his life to save two teenage boys who were involved in a car accident outside of his home. Harmon used a sledgehammer from his garage to break the window out of their car, then pulled them free so they wouldn't be burned to death, while his wife, Pam Dawber, called 911. He made every effort to downplay his role in saving their lives. [1996].

Mark Harmon in Alptraum des Grauens (1986)

Was also a lifeguard before hitting it big. His work as a lifeguard was a summer job at Laguna Beach, California, where his parents and the Nelsons both had beach houses. His father used to wake him up early so he could run for an hour on the beach before he had to report for work. He has credited this practice as conditioning him for fall football practice. Another job he had early in his acting career was working with Mike Walden as the color man on tape-delayed UCLA telecasts on KTLA. On one of those telecasts. Harmon discussed his then-upcoming series, Sam (1978).

When he was 16 years old, at his after-school job delivering flowers, he found a dozen roses addressed to a girl who was dating a friend of his. But the roses weren't from his friend. Mark threw away the card and substituted one with his friend's name on it.

Mark received a call from the producers during the summer between seasons 3 and 4 of NCIS (2003) telling him to stop shaving, because his character Jethro Gibbs was to have a more gruff look, along with a mustache.

Mark Harmon and George Wyner in Navy CIS (2003)

After his very successful college football career at UCLA, he was offered the opportunity to turn professional with a contract to play for the NFL New England Patriots. It wasn't an easy decision but he turned it down. He didn't think he was good enough, but mainly thought that college was about getting an education and making something out of it, as opposed to using college to build a career as a jock.
