STUFF retirement! That is David McCallum’s attitude to life. The 82-year-old is still going strong as Dr Donald “Ducky” Mallard in NCIS. The Scottish-born actor was best known as Ilya Kuryakin in 1960s spy seriesThe Man from U.N.C.L.E. before he joined the cast of the US navy crime drama.
McCallum goes into a reflective mood when asked about the recent movie remake ofThe Man from U.N.C.L.E. “It was such a big change in my life leaving Britain and going to America, getting the series, and it being successful,” McCallum says.
“It also marked a big personal change because my wife Jill (Ireland) went off with Charles Bronson and I met Katherine. I met her 50 years ago and we’ve been married for 48 of them and have our children and grandchildren.”
