Emily Proctor’s journey in the entertainment industry commenced with humble beginnings, gracing the screens of lesser-known TV shows and small-scale TV movies. However, it was her breakthrough moment that arrived with the impactful film “Leaving Las Vegas,” where she shared the spotlight with the acclaimed Nicolas Cage.
Soon after, Proctor’s remarkable talent found its true home on the hit series “CSI: Miami” as the captivating character of Calleigh Duquesne. With her intelligence and bilingual proficiency, Calleigh’s expertise in ballistics earned her the moniker “bullet girl.” Throughout the show’s captivating run, Calleigh’s beauty and brilliance resonated with viewers, leaving an indelible mark that endured from the show’s inception to its unforgettable series finale.
Laurence Fishburne – Then
Dr. Ray Langston, played by Lawrence Fishburne, brought a calm and contemplative character to the "CSI" storyline. Before joining CSI, Fishburne had one of the most impressive resumes of any cast member, having starred in multiple films and TV shows, including "Apocalypse Now," "Predators," "Mission Impossible 3," and "Boyz N' Da Hood."
But the role that really took his career to a whole new level was as the mentor to Neo, Morpheus, in "The Matrix." He became one of the show's stars in seasons nine through eleven but shockingly did not renew his contract, and he was written out of the show.
Emily Procter – Now
After "CSI: Miami," Procter's career also diminished as she only made a couple of appearances on the TV series "White Collar," but she also starred in the 2016 film "Love Everlasting." Outside of acting, Emily is also a singer, poker player, and philanthropist who enjoys her life outside the spotlight with her husband and daughter.
She is very much interested in antiques and interior decoration. As far as the latter goes, she ended up decorating her 1921 Spanish-style home in Los Angeles. Procter also ended up being a guest judge on "Summer Showdown," a show on the Home & Garden Television network.
David Caruso – Now
Throughout his career, David Caruso was typecast in authoritarian roles such as policemen and therefore, will most likely be best known for his role as Horatio Caine. Surprisingly, despite being one of the most iconic characters in the CSI franchise, David Caruso's career flickered out after "CSI: Miami" wrapped in 2012.
It is reportedly both expensive and challenging to bring Caruso onto a project, so it appears that he remains more or less a retired actor, not appearing in any well-known projects since 2012. Since then, he has been involved in art and is a co-owner of the South Miami clothing store Steam on Sunset.
David Caruso – Then
Probably the most recognizable face of "CSI: Miami" is Horatio Caine, played by David Caruso. Let's face it, when most people think of CSI, in general, they think of this iconically-named protagonist. The character of Horatio (also called "H") became central to each episode and the series as a whole and was the head of the forensic lab.
Most notable was his trademark of slipping on his sunglasses while dropping a one-liner about the case featured in that episode. This move not only made Horatio Caine stand out to the audience on the screen but also became a popular parody in pop culture.
