To younger audience, he is best known for his superlative portrayal of Dr. Donald "Duckie" Mallard on the hit CBS series, NCIS (2003). McCallum was first married to actress Jill Ireland, whom he met on March 28 1957 while filming Hell Drivers (1957). In 1963 he introduced Ireland to Charles Bronson when both were filming The Great Escape (1963). She subsequently left McCallum and married Bronson in 1968. McCallum and Ireland had three sons: Paul, Jason (an adopted son who died from an accidental drug overdose in 1989), and Val (short for Valentine). He has been...

Mark Harmon and David McCallum in Navy CIS (2003)

David met Katherine Carpenter (his second wife) quite by accident. On a Sunday in New York in 1965, he and Robert Vaughn were posing for a fashion magazine and were accompanied by several high fashion models to various landmarks in the city. One of the models was Katherine, who he would marry two years later.

Mark Harmon, David McCallum, and Emily Wickersham in Navy CIS (2003)

In Hear My Song (1991) he played Chief Constable Jim Abbott, a senior policeman attempting to track down and arrest the famous Irish singer (and tax fugitive) Josef Locke when a nightclub entrepreneur smuggles Locke back into the UK on a fishing boat for one last payday performance in Liverpool. Whilst the film was part fact and part fiction, in real life McCallum's father was a famous violinist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and actually played for the real Josef Locke in his career. McCallum recalled this story during publicity interviews for the film.
