Actress Jorja Fox, who almost got herself fired off of CBS crime hit CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2004 after a botched salary disagreement, has confirmed to EW.com that not only will the current season of the Las Vegas-set show be her last, but she’s already filmed her swan song and will not remain through the end of the year.
“There are all these things I want to do,” the 39-year-old reveals. “And I really need to do some of them before I get too old.”
And while one might expect Jorja to have some not-so-nice things to say about the show, which has spawned a pair of successful spin-offs, it’s really quite the opposite, which is exactly why she’s getting out at this point in her life. “I feel like [CSI] is going to be around for awhile, so if I don’t want some of those dreams to pass me by, I have to get off the ride.”
