Sara Sidle is a survivor. The actor that plays her, not so much.
Jorja Fox, who has starred on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation since its inception in 2000, will not complete the series' current season, bowing out after the seventh episode in November, E! Online TV columnist Kristin Dos Santos reports.
The news will no doubt be a blow to fans of the actress, albeit not a surprising one.
Her departure comes after rocky contract negotiations offscreen and an onscreen story line that has been foreshadowing for months a less than happy ending for her character.
It was the inability for Fox and producers to come to terms on a salary boost, which they had been negotiating since January, that put the final nail in her CSI coffin.
The story should sound more than a little familiar to fans of the show.
Fox, along with costar George Eads, both were fired from their acting gigs back in 2004, when they famously held out, unsuccessfully, for a bigger payday. They eventually were hired back after making public mea culpas. Eads wound up with a contract extension, but not Fox.
While the contracts for the entire CSI cast expires at the end of the current season, Fox's lapsed in May.
Originally posted by geemoneyI've never hoped for a character death as much as I did for hers last week. And until the last few minutes, I thought it would happen. Well, she'll be gone soon enough I guess.
I was disappointed that Nick didn't get killed off during the Tarantino episodes.
