    She has taken over the starring role in my "older woman" fantasy. I thought she looked great in the season opener.

    JR, she is just really beautiful.

    I saw her on one of the morning shows once and she seems like she has a really genuine personality as well.

    She came a LONG way from a really tiny town in Nebraska!
    From the AP
    'CSI' Actress Recalls Neb. Hometown

    .c The Associated Press

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Marg Helgenberger fantasized about becoming a star while plunging knives into beef carcasses during her summer job at a meatpacking plant in her Nebraska hometown.

    ``I would just daydream about doing Broadway, sing songs through my head. I guess I am sort of proof that dreams do come true,'' said the Emmy-winning actress, star of the CBS hit ``CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.''

    ``I just kind of put one foot in front of the other and got lucky,'' said Helgenberger, who worked as a meatpacker in North Bend, Neb. (population 1,213), more than 20 years ago.

    She went from college graduation to a four-year role on the daytime soap ``Ryan's Hope.'' Then came her Emmy-winning role of K.C. Koloski, a heroin-addicted prostitute, on ``China Beach.''

    Helgenberger, who plays crime scene investigator Catherine Willows, says she isn't surprised that ``CSI'' is one of television's top-rated shows.

    ``A good mystery is always going to be in vogue,'' the 43-year-old said by phone from Las Vegas, where she was shooting scenes for the drama.

    Doing the well-worn genre in a new format - exploring a crime through forensic science by using special effects and flashbacks - also keeps viewers on their toes.

    ``I guess it makes them think and also entertains them,'' she said.

    She is a perfect fit in her roll on CSI. All the characters in Vegas seem to play really well of of eachother. I'm sure it's one of the things that makes the show a success.
    It doesn't matter who she is working with, they just "click"

    I really like her character. Where she comes from, how she's motivated...She's been in bad situations, and has learned to come through it all. Although they haven't shown her daughter at all this season.
