Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle) finally silences the rumors.

It was reported last month that Fox was going to be leaving CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. At the time, Fox herself did not comment on the rumours. However, she has now confirmed that her time on the show has come to an end.

The 39-year-old actress told EW.com that it was her decision to leave the show. The choice was made for personal reasons and was not about money. "There are all these things I want to do," she said. "Some are personal. Some are professional. And I really need to do some of them before I get too old."

Fox was invited to stay on the show for another year, but she only signed on for part of the season. Her final episode will air in November. "If I thought the show were on its last legs, I would have tried harder to stay the course," Fox explained. "But I feel like its going to be around for a while, so if I donít want some of those dreams to pass me by, I have to get off the ride for a while."

The original news was posted on EW.com. The site promises more of their interview with the actress later this week. Thanks to Elsie for sharing the link.
