In 1983, when he was in his early 30s, Mark Harmon was seen in the series "St. Elsewhere" as "Dr. Caldwell". After two seasons the actor left the series: he had asked the authors to write more appealing storylines for his character. That led to the authors cutting the characer from the series.
In 1986 the actor was awarded the title "Sexiest Man Alive" by the "People" magazine, so it's no wonder that the ladies have kept an eye on him. But Mark Harmon has been happy with Pam Dawber since 1987, they have been married for more than 30 years. They have two sons who were born in 1988 and 1992.
