The Ne­braska na­tive, 56, who fol­lowed up her Emmy-win­ning role as K.C. Koloski on China Beach with a 15-year run as Cather­ine Wil­lows on

CSI: Crime Scene In­ves­ti­ga­tion, now goes Un­der the Dome on CBS Thurs­day, June 25. You’re join­ing Un­der the Dome in its third sea­son.

Whow­ill you be play­ing? “I play an an­thro­pol­o­gist who be­comes a leader. Ev­ery­one started turn­ing on each other at the end of last sea­son be­cause there’s a lot of des­per­a­tion since they’re run­ning out of wa­ter, food and elec­tric­ity. I de­vise a plan to share the goods.” You left CSI to have other ad­ven­tures. Have you done

any­thing re­ally cool? “I went to Peru to Machu Picchu and the Sa­cred Val­ley. I’d never been to South Amer­ica be­fore, and the An­des were just spec­tac­u­lar. Then I went to Cuba be­fore the sanc­tions were lifted. That was fas­ci­nat­ing and the peo­ple were just amaz­ing.” You will be go­ing back to CSI for the se­ries fi­nale on Sept. 27. Are you look­ing for­ward

to it? “I’m ex­cited to get back in the ring with Billy Petersen [Gil Gris­som]. We had such a great work­ing re­la­tion­ship. I don’t know any de­tails be­cause it hasn’t been writ­ten yet, but I am hop­ing this will be a nice, proper send­off—not only for the show it­self, but for the fans.”
