Pauley Perrette as appealing as Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman? Kinda awesome.

by Mandi Bierly

Marketing Evaluations, Inc., The Q Scores Company, has just released its January/February 2010 Performer Q study, which asked a representative sample of 1,800 children, teens, and adults to rate the familiarity and appeal of personalities.

The surprising results: Perennial favorite Tom Hanks’ Q Score is now tied with Morgan Freeman’s and NCIS‘ Pauley Perrette’s — which means even though Perrette is roughly half as well-known as Hanks and Freeman, those who are familiar with her adore her. She’s the only female in the Top 10 (posted below).

Performer / Familiarity % / Q Score

1) Tom Hanks / 88 / 50
2) Morgan Freeman / 82 / 50
3) Pauley Perrette / 42 / 50
4) Robin Williams / 84 / 48
5) Clint Eastwood / 85 / 46
6) Mike Rowe / 57 / 45
7) Will Smith / 90 / 44
8) Johnny Depp / 91 / 43
9) Bill Cosby / 91 / 43
10) Harrison Ford / 83 / 43

It makes sense to me. If you know Perrette, you’re a fan of NCIS and probably only associate her with that show — so what’s not to like? Her Abby is a smart, funny, loyal, goth forensic specialist on TV’s top drama (which has way more character development than anyone who’s never seen the show would expect).
