‘House’ Co-Star Leaving the Show

One of the co-stars of Fox’s "House" is leaving the drama and won’t return for the show’s eighth season, reports Deadline.com.

The departure of Lisa Edelstein means the end to the off-and-on relationship between her character, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, and Hugh Laurie’s Dr. House, the story says. The move comes after co-stars Robert Sean Leonard and Omar Epps recently renewed their contracts.

Leonard, Epps and Edelstein had been asked to take a pay cut, with Edelstein’s recent per-episode fee pegged at $175,000, the article notes. In a statement Edelstein said she was "moving onward with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead."

  1. This is a good thing for House. They had stretched the storyline way beyond its usefulness. Now there can be some new excitement for the final season.
