|1||My real name is María José de Pablo. But when I was in 5th grade, people couldn't pronounce it, so I told them to call me Coty. Then I found out there was a beauty line called Coty, and I hated that! So I changed it to Cote [KOH-teh]. A lot of people don't get it, but in Chile, if your name is María José, they call you Cote.|
|2||I have friends who say to me, 'How come you believe in God?' I go, 'How can you not?' I've seen the majestic beauty of nature and the overwhelming perfection of it. To me there's nothing closer to God than that.|
|3||Most of the time I rest, try to do a movie or just watch them at home. I'm into watching old movies I haven't seen like Roman Polanski's Macbeth (1971). Occasionally I go out with friends, but there's no time to really go clubbing like I used to. I have to take care of myself because if you get sick you still have to work. I'm not much a party animal anyway. I lay low. I like to be grounded by nature, go hiking... go to an isolated island that's not glamorous and touristy at all. And if somebody special is sitting next to me, then so be it.|
|4||Coming from the theater I love the adrenalin rush from working on NCIS. You get home and you're exhausted, but you feel like you've really worked. It's such a masochistic thing. In one episode we were shooting boxed in a container from 7 in the morning to 12 at night. There's gunfire in the container...We had to pretend the truck was moving so we had to keep ourselves moving the whole time. I remember my knees were all bruised up because I had to fall so many times. That was taxing on the body. - on doing stunts in NCIS.|

I stopped watching NCIS when she left. She played the well and I liked her gutsy way of doing it..
NCIS and Mark Harmon…need to shut down..it’s boring
Although I really enjoyed Ziva, I wouold like to see Code in another series. I loved NCIS, but since Mark Harmon left, it is not as entertaining. If he does not return, I will probably not watch it. I also miss Abby.
Her brief return was embarrassing. Not for her – for the series. Really do miss her. Lost three key characters. Haven’t watched the series on network in so long I was not aware Harmon was gone.
I have not been a regular evening tv viewer for a very long time. Watch reruns on WE and ION. If “Ziva” and Weatherly are missing from an episode, I move on.
I miss Cote and Michael so much. I am always watching the reruns as long as they are on it. NCIS would do well to have them return if only for several episodes. I know I am not the only one who feels this way. NCIS get with it please!
