The Truth About NCIS Star Sean Murray's Marriage

Sean Murray is best known for portraying Special Agent Timothy McGee in CBS' "NCIS." Prior to that, he appeared in the Halloween classic "Hocus Pocus," which was released in 1993. Per IMDb, he has been on "NCIS" since its inception in 2003 — first as a guest star and then joining as a permanent cast member in Season 2. The show does not only focus on his character's ability to solve cases with his geeky wisdom, but also chronicles his love journey with Delilah Fielding, played by Margo Harshman. "McLilah" has become one of the most popular television couples in television.

In reality, though, Murray also has an enviable relationship with his wife, Carrie James, whom he married in November 2005. While Murray has become a household name thanks to the popularity of "NCIS," his wife is also an impressive individual. Find out more about her and their relationship below.

Sean Murray's wife is a businesswoman

Sean Murray and Carrie James have been married since 2005 and share two children together — daughter Caitlyn and son River. Per People, James used to be a teacher, but transitioned out of teaching to be an entrepreneur after their son was born. She founded BRA — Business Relationship Alliance — in 2015 after seeing how many women struggle with networking and building their companies. According to BRA's official website, the company is "a network of powerful women devoted to advancing female-owned businesses by providing the community, collaboration, mentorship, empowerment and support needed to flourish as an entrepreneur."

While James has been busy growing BRA since 2015, she had previous experience founding organizations, as she founded Prestique Academy of Innovation and Technology, a school for students with exceptional needs, in 2011. In doing so, she also became the first person in her family to open up a business, as Voyage LA noted. The reason she decided to get into entrepreneurship was because she wanted to help other women succeed.

"I'm a natural connector. I can listen to someone tell me about what they are struggling with and I can connect them with the right people seamlessly and with pure joy," she told Voyage LA. "I love seeing other women succeed and support each other." Not only does James support other women, but she has also found support from Murray, who frequently boasts about her on Instagram.

Sean Murray thinks Carrie James is 'incredible'

Sean Murray may be too busy fighting crime on television, but he always makes time to express his appreciation to his wife of 16 years on social media. In May 2020, Murray posted a Mother's Day tribute to James, posting a photo of him and her sight-seeing in an undisclosed location on Instagram, with the caption, "Happy Mother's Day to my incredible wife and all the moms out there!"

Besides showing his love for her publicly, Murray is also grateful for James' input on their home renovations throughout the years. In March 2021, Murray exclusively showed off his home to People, which he spent 10 years renovating with James and views it as a forever home. "There is definitely something about putting roots down, because I didn't have that as a kid, in a lot of ways. We moved every two, three years," Murray said, referencing nomadic life as a child. "So there is a part of me that's like, 'You got your place, your space, your house with your family. Make it yours.'"

Judging by how well the couple's personal and professional lives are going, it seems like they have found the secret to a successful and long-lasting marriage.
