How Mark Harmon And Pam Dawber Have Stayed Happily Married For 30 Years In Hollywood

In the 1980s, these two were the "it" couple—and their marriage has lasted all these years!

In the 1980s, actors Mark Harmon and Pam Dawber were the Hollywood “it” couple.

Harmon was named People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 1986 and had starred in two of the decade’s hit shows, “St. Elsewhere” and “Moonlighting.”

Dawber gained fame as Mindy in the classic sitcom “Mork and Mindy” and also scored her own sitcom called “My Sister Sam.”

The couple wed in a private ceremony in 1987, at the height of their success, and have been together ever since.

Being married for 30 years in Hollywood is like a century in the real world!

Despite the tabloid culture that has only grown more intrusive in the three decades since Harmon and Dawber tied the knot, the couple has managed to keep their personal lives largely private.

“It’s not even a choice,” Harmon told TV Insider. “It’s who we are. We stay home. A lot. I’m not a Twitter guy or a Facebook guy. Our sons aren’t into that either. Pam and I have both made a living in this business, and still, there’s a part of that that’s just not natural.”

Harmon’s star continued to rise in the entertainment industry, and he currently stars on the hit show “NCIS.”

Though Harmon stays off social media himself, he occasionally appears in his co-stars’ posts, like this one on Instagram from Maria Bello.

“The usual suspects… watch our new episode of NCIS tonight on CBS,” she wrote.
