Alongside the clip, the caption read: "This song was written by our beloved #UncleMarkReynolds He was a singer/songwriter we lost way too early. His song 'Nothing Good Comes' has never been more relevant. Please listen. #ISRAEL #PEACE please."

Shortly after posting, a number of Pauley's fans noted their concern in the comments. "Seeing you so sad and not your joyful face was hard to see. Wish the world would be happier," wrote one. "Take care of yourself, we all love you," added another. Meanwhile, a third penned: "I'm in Australia, I wish I could give you a big hug right now, as it looks like you need one."

Pauley's former NCIS co-star Sasha Alexander – aka Caitlin Todd – lent her support too. "Always a fighter for peace. Keep spreading your love, Pauley. I love you sister," she said. 

It's been a difficult few months for Pauley who, along with the rest of her NCIS family, recently learned of the passing of David McCallum, in September. At 90 years old, David had been the last remaining original cast member of NCIS prior to his death, and his character – Chief Medical Examiner Donald "Ducky" Mallard – has been hailed as iconic.

Responding to the news on Instagram last month, Pauley penned a heartfelt tribute to her dear friend. Posting a series of photos, she captioned them: "Oh David. What a life. What a legend. What a journey. And your legacy will always be the love you have for your family. Love to Katherine and the kids and the grandkids, your absolutely very favorite things."

Pauley's NCIS co-star Mark Harmon also shared a tribute, stating: "David lived a great, full, long life. I was in awe when I first met him and all of us on the show were honored to have toed a mark opposite him. My condolences go out to Katherine and his family."=
