Way before he was ever Harm, this actor actually worked in a belt factory. David James Elliott was raised in a farming community in Ontario. However, by 17, he moved to Toronto to try to make it as an actor. He told TV Guide, “I was working at a belt factory and living in this boarding house.” Well, things really changed for this Canadian once he landed the role of a lifetime on JAG.
Filmed On Real Ships
Now, for many fans, they never knew the main ship JAG used for filming was in fact the USS Forrestal (CV-59). At the time of the show, that was a working training carrier. Of course, many other Navy Nimitz-class carriers appeared on JAG during the course of the show. Others include the USS John F. Kennedy, USS Enterprise and USS Saratoga. Often, they gave the ships fake names like, the Seahawk or the Reprisal.
