CSI: Crime Scene Investigation‘s Marg Helgenberger is happy that her character, Catherine Willows, is in charge of the Las Vegas Crime Lab. “I’ve enjoyed the confidence and the strength that Catherine has had throughout all these years,” Helgenberger said. “But, now that she’s a leader, it’s really given me the opportunity to explore those qualities in myself as well as in the character.” The actress added that she likes playing characters that are “down to earth” rather than glamorous.
