After disagreements over his contract with CBS, Gary Dourdan left “CSI.” And though he made some appearances in other shows and films, his personal life began to unravel. Dourdan was arrested for possession of illicit substances and, a few years later, was also charged with possession of paraphernalia following a car crash.
Unfortunately, Dourdan’s personal life only continued to spiral as he was sentenced to five years of probation for a domestic assault case and then filed for bankruptcy in 2012. Despite this, Dourdan has continued to find work in the world of acting, showing up in shows such as “First Wives Club” and “The Last O.G.”

He joined the cast of "Manhattan" in season two for ten episodes, but unfortunately, the show was canceled at the end of the year. However, "CSI" fans were delighted when Peterson reprised the role of Gil Grissom in "CSI: Vegas." Though the experience took a toll on his health.

Fans and critics were shocked and saddened by Brown's death as he had become a well-liked character. Prior to "CSI," Dourdan appeared in shows such as "Lois & Clark: New Adventures of Superman" and "Swift Justice," to name a few.

Natalia Boa Vista stayed on the show till the series finale. Before her time on "CSI," LaRue appeared in shows such as "Freddy's Nightmares," "Married... with Children," and "Dallas." She even appeared in "RoboCop 3" back in the '90s.
Eva LaRue – Now
In the past, Eva LaRue was known as Dr. Maria Santos Grey in "All My Children." Sadly, when "CSI: Miami" was canceled in 2012, Eva only made brief appearances on tv shows in the succeeding years.
Recently, she returned to her place on daytime soaps in her role of Celeste Rosales on "The Young and the Restless" in 2019, and, as of 2020, she can be seen on "Finding Love in Quarantine." Outside of the world of acting, LaRue was stalked for the good part of a decade. Eventually, though, the culprit was caught and sentenced to 5 years in prison.
