Maria Bello's Net Worth After Starring In NCIS Might Surprise You

After the recent departure of Mark Harmon's Leroy Jethro Gibbs on "NCIS," there are few members of the original cast of the popular crime drama series left. Sean Murray's Timothy McGee remains, along with David McCallum's Dr. Donald "Ducky" Mallard and Joe Spano's T.C. Fornell, although most of the Major Case Response Team is full of relatively fresh faces courtesy of the past couple of seasons. As it stands in Season 19, the "NCIS" main team consists of McGee, Ducky, Wilmer Valderamma's Nick Torres, Katrina Law's Jessica Knight, Brian Dietzen's Dr. Jimmy Palmer, Diona Reasonover's Kasie Hines, Rocky Carroll's Leon Vance, and Gary Cole's Alden Parker.

However, just one season earlier, neither Law nor Cole was there — their spots on the team were filled by Emily Wickersham's Ellie Bishop and Maria Bello's Dr. Jack Sloane. Wickersham confirmed back in 2021 before the Season 18 finale that she would be exiting the show (via People), and we saw her character leave for a top-secret mission. Bello had also announced her exit, with her character saying goodbye to Gibbs in Afghanistan, where she would continue the humanitarian work of a friend who was killed (via Newsweek).

Bello, like many of the "NCIS" cast members, is an experienced actor, known for roles in movies like "Coyote Ugly," "The Cooler," and "A History of Violence” before joining the show in 2017. However, after spending a few years with "NCIS," arguably one of the top five crime shows of all time, Bello's net worth may surprise you. Here's what we know.

Maria Bello's net worth is about $12 million

Along with gaining film experience in the 2000s and 2010s alongside some big-name actors like Michael Sheen and Hugh Jackman in "Beautiful Boy" and "Prisoners," Bello was part of television before "NCIS" as well, breaking through in "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" and even spending some time on the renowned medical drama "ER" as Anna Del Amico.

All of these projects combined would certainly earn any actor a decent amount of money and might raise their acting fee quite a bit, but after her time with "NCIS," Bello's net worth is reportedly around $12 million (via Celebrity Net Worth). Apparently, the 54-year-old was getting paid around $125,000 per episode during her stint on "NCIS" as well. Even in comparison to her former co-star Mark Harmon's salary on the show, which sat at a massive $525,000 per episode, this is a decent chunk of change (via Celebrity Net Worth).
