Just a reminder that the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews – CSI Farewell Salute takes place this week on Wednesday, September 16th. The farewell event will feature a screening of the series finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and will be accompanied by a “CSI: Farewell Salute” panel featuring William Petersen (Gil Grissom), Marg Helgenberger (Catherine Willows), Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), Ted Danson (DB Russell) and more.

For those like me who will be unable to attend in person, there will also a be a livestream of the panel on Yahoo!. The CSI Farewell begins at 7:00 PM Pacific Time/10:00 PM Eastern.


Fans of both CSI and the Carolina Panthers should enjoy this photo that Marg posted on twitter last night. An avid Carolina Panthers fan, Marg received a Panthers football signed by Luke Kuechly and former CSI costar William Petersen was on hand to pose for this photo of Marg sharing her gift with fans.

Here are a couple of behind-the-scenes photos from Under the Dome that Marg posted on twitter during the series finale. The finale was amazing, by the way, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t already.

Since Marg’s character was killed off in last week’s episode of ‘Under the Dome,’ I won’t be writing a proper recap or review of the series finale. I did, however, want to take a moment and say a few words.

I didn’t begin watching ‘Under the Dome’ until I heard that Marg would be joining the cast for Season 3. At first I was hesitant since I’ve not read much Stephen King and just didn’t think it would be my cup of tea. From the first episode, however, I immediately fell in love with the show – the characters, the non-stop action, the unpredictability of the storylines, just everything about the show really. I quickly binge-watched the first two seasons and anxiously awaited Marg’s appearance in Season 3. Marg’s appearance as Christine Price, of course, only added to my love of the show and even though her storyline ended last week, I had every intention of continuing to watch the show after her departure. The decision by CBS to cancel the series was therefore very disappointing. Goodbye ‘Under the Dome’ – I’m going to miss you.

I do want to say thank you to all who were involved with the show. I was already a fan of Dean Norris, Eddie Cahill, and Mike Vogel prior to watching ‘Under the Dome’, but I enjoyed all of the actors on the show very much and will continue to follow their careers in the future.

I also want to say thanks to the ‘Under the Dome’ fandom. Even though I came to the show so late in its run, you have all been so welcoming and kind, and most importantly, so respectful to Marg even if you didn’t particularly like Christine. I especially want to thank Sarah, Rose, and Zena for being so sweet and so much fun to chat with this season.

And last but never least, I want to say a huge thanks to Marg for taking on the role of Christine Price. I’ve said it every week, but it has just been so great watching you play this character. I’m disappointed this ride is over, but I know there will be many more adventures to come – on television, film, and stage. Can’t wait to see what comes next! Love you! xo

2015 is turning out to be quite a busy year for Marg. Here are some details from another new project that she has been working on. Thanks to Lee for the head’s up on this one.


“‘Yours, Willa Cather’ is a 30-minute documentary inspired by the recently published Selected Letters of Willa Cather, edited by Andy Jewell and Janis Stout. There is also a companion iBook which features eleven letters, read by Nebraska-born actress Marg Helgenberger of China Beach and CSI fame.”

“In ‘Yours, Willa Cather,’ we hear a voice different from that of Willa Cather the great novelist. Instead we meet a person who is vulnerable, funny and at times, ruthless. A fascinating woman who thoroughly mastered the art of letter writing.”

“As the voice of Willa Cather, Marg Helgenberger has all the right credentials. She’s an Emmy Award-winner and Golden Globe nominee, recently seen as a Special Guest Star in a recurring role on the CBS series Under the Dome. And her roots are in Nebraska.”

The “Yours, Willa Cather” documentary premieres September 21 on NET in Nebraska.

Hopefully the documentary will become more widely available in the future, as I’m sure some of my fellow literature buffs would love to hear Marg read Willa Cather’s letters, but for now, here are some excerpts and you can listen to even more excerpts from the documentary at
