Life before NCIS
Before becoming famous for his role as Marty Deeks in NCIS: Los Angeles, Olsen starred in several feature films, including Get Real, Not Another Teen Movie, Fired Up, Local Boys, The Hot Chick and Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
His television credits include starring roles in Tru Calling and The Loop, as well as appearances in Brothers and Sisters, ER, 24 and Community.
The 41-year-old actor and his wife got married back in June 2012 near Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with Sarah Wright announcing her second pregnancy in February.
They met in 2006 on the set of the Fox sitcom, The Loop. The couple welcomed their son, Wyatt Oliver Olsen, in 2013 and daughter, Esmé Olivia Olsen, in 2016.
Olsen is a softie
Olsen admits that the emotional intensity of fatherhood was the biggest surprise to him, which made him a softie after the birth of his son. He said:
I’m such a sucker for that kid when he smiles. He squints his eyes and he gets this big gummy smile, and it’s just emotions I didn’t know I had. I’ve become such a softie. I get tears in my eyes, and I get all excited. It’s just that’s not who I am.
The actor says his NCIS: Los Angeles co-stars Chris O’Donnell and LL Cool J have been his role models in the daddy area, adding that he gets great advice from them.
We wish Olsen and his family all the best!
