While many fans spent several years rooting for the two to make their relationship work on screen, they couldn’t help but wonder if Cote had any real-life chemistry with her co-stars when the cameras were not rolling. She and Michael Weatherly had such a natural chemistry between them that most people were certain that they had to be dating in real life.

So, has Cote de Pablo ever dated any of her NCIS co-stars? Here is what we know.

Did Cote de Pablo date any of her ‘NCIS’ co-stars?

On the show, Cote de Pablo’s character, Ziva, had a long-standing relationship with Michael Weatherly’s character, Tony. In the beginning, they had a bit of a cat-and-mouse type of relationship. Fans ate up the amount of romantic tension there was between these characters. As their characters’ storyline progressed, the amount of chemistry that these two had together made it hard for anyone to believe that these two people didn’t actually have a relationship in real life.

However, these two actors were never in a real-life relationship. In fact, Michael Weatherly has been married to his second wife, Bojana Jankovic, since 2009. Bojana is a physician from Siberia. She is also listed in IMDb as a screenwriter and assistant director on two films, but this is not her primary profession.

She started dating Michael in 2008 and a year later, the couple officially tied the knot. They have two kids together, a son and daughter, named Liam and Olivia. Last year, Michael was accused of sexually harassing his Bull co-star, Eliza Dushku. Michael’s wife stood beside him through the entire ordeal and the case was eventually settled out of court.

As far, as any other NCIS co-star goes, Cote de Pablo seems to have a strictly platonic relationship with all of her fellow cast members.

Who has Cote de Pablo dated in the past?

Cote’s most significant relationship to date was the long-term relationship that she was in with Ecuadorian actor Diego Serrano. The two started to date in 2000 and ultimately decided to split up in 2015. Although the break-up was probably pretty hard on her, she has attributed her risk-taking personality to the fact that she was fortunate enough to spend a lot of time with Diego.

While she was still dating Diego, she gave an interview about their relationship. “I’m in a long-term relationship with Diego Serrano and I am very happy. He’s the worst influence that I have ever had in my life, and I love him for it. Every once in a while, he turns to me a goes, ‘Live a little.’ I’ll have chicken with broccoli and he’s like, ‘What about the chocolate cake?’ If it weren’t for him, I’d be the most boring person in Los Angeles.” 

Eating chocolate cake instead of chicken and broccoli may not be viewed as living the “dangerous life” to most people, but it does look like her ex-boyfriend was able to get her step out of her comfort zone a little bit.

Is Cote de Pablo currently dating anyone?

While Cote de Pablo rarely lets the public know what is going on with her personal life, it looks as if she is single right now. It looks like her top priority in her life right now is her career. While she left NCIS back in 2013, she did make a few guest appearances on the show this year, and many are speculating that she may actually return to the show next season.

Although she never dated any of her NCIS co-stars, she did seem to make lasting friendships with many of the crew members of the show. Whether or not Cote decides to ever come back to the show again, it is clear that with the amount of talent that she possesses, she will continue to have a very prosperous career.
