Did Jorja Fox Refuse to Have Her CSI Character Killed?

Posted by Fara Kearnes on May 3, 2007 7:30 PM |

Jorja FoxJorja Fox was supposed to die at the end of "CSI" this year - but she has refused to show up for work on the set to film her "death scene."

According to reports, the show's execs have been unhappy with the star's salary demands, and decided to kill off her CSI character, Sara Sidle, who's in a secret romance with boss Gil Grissom (William Petersen).

Fox was scheduled to film Sara's death scene late last month, when her character was supposed to be crushed by a car for the May 17 season finale. But Fox wouldn't show up for work, forcing the producers to film an alternate ending - including last-minute script rewrites and flying co-star Marg Helgenberger from L.A. to Vegas for expensive re-shoots.

Fox's rep told The New York Post yesterday that the actress' future on the show was up in the air. "Her contract is up and they are in conversations," said the spokeswoman.

This was not Fox's first salary dispute with the show. In 2004, she and co-star George Eads, who plays Nick Stokes, were fired by CBS after refusing to come to work during a contract dispute. They were re-hired a few days later.

Fox reportedly rakes in $100,000-per-episode and was demanding a "major raise." CBS reportedly offered her a "moderate raise," which she balked at.

The story could be bogus but something is going on. The Chicago Tribune reports that Sara will "go missing" in the season finale cliffhanger.

Stay tuned.


Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle) cant leave csi as sara and gil are my faveourite caracters! i love the program to bits but it wnt be the sme without her thanks xx

I think Jorja is being written out of the show and I think CSI will do just fine without her.
I like Jorja and I like Sara Sidle, but I think the pairing of her with Gil is the reason CSI is in second place this season instead of first, because many people are absolutely disgusted that they've turned a high quality crime drama into a simpering chick flick show.
If CSI can be the best show on TV for 6 seasons, then leave it the way it is. Relationships are fine, there's tons of friendships on the show, but leave the soap crap off the show.


Kayleigh, the only people I've seen that are 'disgusted' with the G/S romance, are the ones who want Grissom with Catherine. Also, if you've ever watched a show like Grey's Anatomy, you find the soap opera crap. The extremely minor romantic scenes (yes, Grissom calling Sara 'dear' is a real freaking soap opera.) you do see on screen are tastefully and subtly done. Speak for yourself because you sure as heck don't speak for everyone.

OMG Sara and Gil are meant to be!!!! Ever since the second episode of he first season when Gil calls in sara after that first Csi chick is killed!

do not kill sara because i will tell nevery one never to watch csi AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DO NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

y would they kill sara off great job for refusing to get killed becasue she deserved better
