Sara Sidle is a fictional character on the CBS crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, portrayed by actress Jorja Fox. Sidle is a forensic scientist and one of the core characters of the show, which revolves around a crime scene investigation team from Clark County, Nevada that investigates cases in and around the city of Las Vegas. In the first seven years of the show, Sidle appears in every episode except in the pilot, "Random Acts of Violence" from season three, "Jackpot" from season four, "Formalities", "Hollywood Brass" from season five and "Spellbound" from season six.
Sidle then recurred during seasons 9 and 10, returning to the main cast in Season 11. Following her return she has been absent from: "Sqweegel", "Cold Blooded", "Fracked", "Man Up", "A Kiss Before Frying", "The List", and "Father of the Bride" from season eleven, "Maid Man", "Genetic Disorder", "Trends with Benefits", "Altered Stakes" from season twelve, "Play Dead", "CSI on Fire", "Dead of the Class" from season thirteen.
Sara Sidle has gained an extensive fan base throughout the years. A romantic relationship between Sidle and her supervisor, Gil Grissom, was hinted at during the first years of the show, but it was only in CSI's season six that the relationship was confirmed and then made definitive with Grissom's marriage proposal in season eight.
In September 2007, there were rumors of Fox leaving the series. Fans from all over the world sent money and gifts to CSI's writers and producers to "Keep Jorja Fox in CSI." Although the campaign received some minor publicity and comments to the media from Fox and Carol Mendelsohn, it proved fruitless when, in October 2007, Fox confirmed her departure from CSI.
The character returned in the season nine premiere when she hears the news concerning the shooting of Warrick Brown. She leaves at the conclusion of the second episode of the season, after having a thinly veiled argument with Grissom while dealing with the distraught husband of a victim whose case she had worked eight years prior. Grissom joins her in Costa Rica in the tenth episode of season nine. The final scene shows the couple kissing.
Fox returned to CSI for season 10 on a recurring basis; although she is not part of the main cast, she has appeared on various episodes throughout the season. This recurring role continued until the ninth episode of the eleventh season where she was credited as main cast in CBS press releases - despite appearing in the opening credits since the beginning of the season.
As confirmed in March 2013, Fox will be returning for season 14.

Famous quotes containing the word sidle:
“He gives the impression of a strong mind which is composed and wise. His brown eye is exceedingly kindly and gentle. A child would like to sit in his lap and a dog would sidle up to him. It is difficult to associate his personality and this impression of kindness and gentle simplicity with what has occurred here in connection with these purges and shootings of the Red Army generals, and so forth.”
