Check out this brief interview with Helgenberger from the New York Post about Intelligence. Regarding her decision to leave CSI during season 12, the actress said, “Certainly I adored the cast, crew and writers. It wasn’t that I was needing to get out of that situation. But creatively, I felt like I needed to switch it up. I didn’t think about going back into [another TV] series until later because I was really hoping to find a play.”
