Kyra Sedgwick - Kyra Sedgwick Closes Final Series Of 'The Closer'


Kyra Sedgwick has brought a 'close' to the American crime drama 'The Closer' in which she stars as Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson.

With the last six episodes of the TV show coming to an end in its seventh series this summer, Kyra is looking to explore new roles away from the show which won her a Golden Globe Award in 2006. Speculation that the decision was made following husband Kevin Bacon landing the lead role in the upcoming Fox drama 'The Following' has been denied by Kyra in a press conference call published by Csmonitor.com. 'It was before Kevin got his gig. I think we were in the middle of shooting Season 6 actually, when I started to contemplate the idea of what Season 8 would look like', she said. 'The idea of doing a Season 8 I think felt daunting to me and overwhelming, and sort of just didn't feel right.'

Despite her wishes for the show to end, Kyra maintains a love for the character she grew to understand and play so well. '[I] hope as an actor that [viewers of the show] really grew to understand and love this character as I love her.' She also said that was willing to make an appearance in future episodes of the show's spin-off 'Major Crimes'.
