TV Plus (South Africa) - - 13 AUGUST -

CSI: Crime Scene In­ves­ti­ga­tion (2000-cur­rent) will in­tro­duce fans to its new­est fran­chise on Wed­nes­day 13 Au­gust when Pa­tri­cia Ar­quette, bet­ter known to us as Al­li­son DuBois in Medium (2005-2011), guest stars as Spe­cial Agent Avery Ryan. Head­ing up the Cy­ber Crime Di­vi­sion, Avery will be the lead char­ac­ter in her own spin-off, called CSI: Cy­ber that’s set to pre­miere in the US in Jan­uary 2015. The ac­tress has been in the show­biz game since she was 17 and she’s had a wild per­sonal life and ca­reer so far.

The 46-year-old is the youngest daugh­ter of an act­ing fam­ily that in­cludes brother David Ar­quette (Deputy Dewey Ri­ley in the Scream movies, 19962001) and sis­ter Rosanna Ar­quette (Jody in 1994 flick Pulp Fic­tion). When Pa­tri­cia was 15, she ran away from home (an artist com­mune in Ar­ling­ton, Vir­ginia) af­ter learn­ing that her dad was having an af­fair. She moved in with big sis­ter Rosanna (last seen as Linda in Ray Dono­van in 2013) in LA in 1983. Four years later, 19-year-old Pa­tri­cia got her first film gig in 1987’s Pretty Smart. Then she was cast as Kris­ten Parker that same year in the film A Night­mare On Elm Street 3: Dream War­riors. She dated mu­si­cian Paul Rossi onand-off and when Pa­tri­cia was 20, she had their son Enzo Lu­ciano Rossi – Paul ditched her af­ter Enzo was born. Pa­tri­cia dated Ni­co­las Cage (from 2000 film Gone In Sixty Seconds) on-and-off for eight years but took the plunge in 1995 – she wore a black vinyl dress and they had a pur­ple wed­ding cake. They lasted just nine months to­gether but only of­fi­cially di­vorced in May 2001. Aged 34, Pa­tri­cia had her daugh­ter Har­low Olivia Cal­liope Jane on 23 Fe­bru­ary 2003. Har­low’s dad is ac­tor Thomas Jane (Frank Cas­tle in 2004 movie The Pu­n­isher). They tied the knot in June 2006 in Venice, Italy but Pa­tri­cia filed for di­vorce in Jan­uary 2009, cit­ing “ir­rec­on­cil­able dif­fer­ences”. They re­u­nited just weeks later but split for good in Au­gust 2010. Her blonde hair isn’t her real colour – yip, the nat­u­ral brunette’s had us all fooled for years.

Move over Gris­som – there’s a new lead CsI in town: Pa­tri­cia Ar­quette.
