“CSI: Las Vegas” star Jorja Fox broke her exit news via Twitter, sharing the heartfelt reason behind her decision.
“For me CSI has always been a love story. The story that people can find love in the darkest of places and times… And the story that love, even in the darkest of places and times, can expand and grow roots and endure,” she said. “I personally just can’t split Sara and Grissom up again. So goes Grissom…..So goes Sara. Wherever they go, they belong together.” We’re not crying, you’re crying!
Although fans of the series were upset to see Fox leave, they ultimately respected her commitment to preserving the “CSI” story. “As much as I wished to see her return again I respect your decision wholly because it comes out of so much love for your character,” one fan replied, while someone else said, “As heartbroken as I am to not have you onscreen, my heart absolutely melts knowing that you love this love story with the same passion and dedication that I as a fan do.” And one commenter kept it simple, writing, “I completely understand your view on not splitting them up again. Respect for that.”
