Jorja Fox Life Story
Name a popular TV show of the late 90's early 2000's and you'll probably also name a credit on Jorja (pronounced like the state Georgia) Fox's resume. Growing up, Fox was often teased about the gap between her front teeth, and said that she was able to fit a quarter in the space. But no amount of braces or dental worked seemed to help, so she decided to just live with it.
Fox began her career as a model, after graduation from Melbourne High School. She soon shifted towards acting and attended the Lee Strasberg Institute in New York. She was seen in various small roles on After School Specials in the early 90's, but had her first major role in an episode of Law and Order in 1993. This role would eventually lead Fox to ER, where she played the vegetarian lesbian intern Maggie Doyle for 33 episodes. During this time, she also appeared as a lesbian in the famous episode of Ellen, in which Ellen finally comes out of the closet.
After her character's story ended on ER, fox joined another talented ensemble cast as she played Agent Gina Toscano on The West Wing in 2000. Later that year, she starred in Sara Sidle on CSI: Crime Scene Investigators and quickly became a fan-favorite. Her work on the show also stirred up some mild controversy in 2004 when she refused to sign a contract that stated she would show up to work on time. She was subsequently fired from the show. After a week of negotiation, she returned to work. In 2007, Fox had yet to sign a contract for the shows 2007-2008 season and it was speculated that she would not return. Fans of the show organized a letter-writing campaign called "Dollars for Sense" in an attempt to make the show's producers realize that they need Fox. Audiences members were asked to send a dollar bill to the show's producers to show support for Fox.
In October 2007, Fox told Entertainment Weekly that this would be her last season on the show, and that the money donated by fans would be going to a foster child charity. [http://www.fanhistory.com/wiki/Jorja_Fox]
