NCIS actor Gary Cole is married to second wife Michelle Knapp

Gary Cole, 65, is a long-time film and TV star. He was married to actress Teddi Siddall for 25 years, but their relationship ended a bit mysteriously.

Teddi Siddall filed for divorce in 2017, but she ended up passing away just a few months later. Her cause of death, at age 64, was never confirmed publicly. Cole has since remarried.

In 2021, Gary Cole tied the knot with his wife Michelle Knapp. It looks like they were dating for several years before, too. Cole pops up in many photos on Knapp's Instagram page dating back to 2018.
