Full Jorja Fox Biography
Jorja Fox (born Jorja-An Fox July 7, 1968, in New York, New York), is an American actress. She is best known for starring in three successful television dramas: ER, The West Wing and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

In 2003, she was ranked #80 in Stuff magazine's list of the 103 sexiest women. She is annually nominated for PETA's "World's Sexiest Vegetarian".

Fox is the youngest child of Montreal-born parents, and was raised on a narrow barrier island in Melbourne Beach, Florida. She describes herself as being overweight while growing up, with a prominent gap between her teeth. Over the years, she has had a variety of strange items stuck between her two front teeth, including a quarter and some rocks. By her twenties, neither her wisdom teeth nor braces had appreciably helped, and Fox said "forget it."

After attending Melbourne High School for two years, she began a modeling career after winning a local contest. Subsequently she enrolled as a drama student at the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York, under the tutelage of actor William Hickey.

After appearing in several minor films and TV series, including a 1993 episode of Law & Order, Fox entered the limelight in 1996 when she joined the hit NBC television series ER, as the no-nonsense vegetarian and lesbian medical intern Dr. Maggie Doyle (credited as "Jorjan Fox").

Playing up that fame, Fox appeared on the coming out episode of Ellen ("The Puppy Episode Part 2", 30 April 1997).Jorja Fox and William Petersen on a 2003 episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

In 1999, she was cast as Secret Service Agent Gina Toscano on NBC's series The West Wing, where she starred for one season.

Fox has appeared in the films Velocity Trap, Food for the Heart and she also appeared briefly in Memento, playing Guy Pearce's wife.

In 2000, she became one of the characters of the CBS series CSI, in which she portrays a Las Vegas forensic scientist called Sara Sidle. She has announced that the show's current 2007-2008 season will be her last.

Fox is also a musician: she plays guitar (badly, she says) and recently purchased a drum kit. She also sings and writes songs, most notably the song "Lullabye" for the movie Traveling Companion, as well as the song "Satellite" which she published on her official web site. Jorja and CSI co-star Marg Helgenberger sang "Stand by Me" as a duet for What a Pair 4!!, an annual charity event to raise money for breast cancer research.

Fox is a supporter of the Human Rights Campaign and—being a dedicated vegetarian since the age of 20—has worked with PETA to help promote vegetarianism.Jorja Fox's advert for PETA.

She and CSI co-star George Eads received some bad publicity in 2004 when they were fired. Fox had allegedly failed to submit a letter to CBS confirming that she would be on time for shooting. The disputes were resolved in just over a week, and the two were rehired by CBS; however, neither actor's salary was raised, although other cast members did receive raises. It was also reported that of the two, Fox was approached first to resume her contract with CSI - but she refused until Eads was rehired as well.

On April 18, 2007, TV Guide began reporting that Fox may not be returning for the eighth season of CSI, having not yet signed a new contract. The season finale turned out to be a cliffhanger involving her character, Sara Sidle. The New York Post reported that Fox did not show up to film the finale because of ongoing issues over her employment. Neither CBS nor Jorja's agent have confirmed the allegations.

On October 15, 2007, Fox told Entertainment Weekly that she left CSI, saying that she wanted a break "from the commitment of a weekly television series."
