Miguel Ferrer said his cast mates made him want to go to work every day

During the 2014 Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo, an interviewer asked Ferrer what motivated him to keep going to work every day. He told her he was excited to come to work because of the people he worked with.

I’m sure everyone you’ve talked to today said, ‘Oh, we’re like a family. We’re all so close. It’s usually not true. I’ve been doing this a long time. It’s never true. But in my case, with NCIS: Los Angeles, it’s really true. We all get along so well and are so fond of one another. And so that is what I look forward to most. And obviously, the work is great. The writing is a lot of fun and the characters are great to play. That’s great, but I think just working with the people is what I get most excited about.

Miguel Ferrer wanted to stay on NCIS: Los Angeles for as long as he could

At one point, the interviewer at the 2014 Festival de Télévision de Monte-Carlo asked Ferrer what his plans were in the next couple of years. She asked if he planned to stay on NCIS: Los Angeles or if he desired to move on to another show. Ferrer said he wanted to remain on NCIS: Los Angeles for as long as he could. “I would love to ride this into the sunset. And I think we all want to do it for a good, long time,” said Ferrer. “I think we’re all really happy doing it… There are a lot of cast members of a lot of shows that aren’t happy, and that’s not the case here. I think everybody really wants to do this for a good many years longer. As long as people keep watching.”
