Interesting interview with Lauren Lee Smith about her joining CSI
and her character.
Lauren Lee Smith joined CSI playing Riley Adams, who was meant to replace the departing character of Sara Sidle in Season 9. Adams was a non-conformist who joined law enforcement to rebel against her father, who is a psychiatrist. Adams transferred to Las Vegas from St. Lois, Missouri.
Someone close to Riley was a victim of a crime, and she hasn't quite worked through her feelings — except by pouring them into her work.
