"Suits" star Gina Torres says she left the hit legal drama so that she can focus on her personal life. The 47-year-old actress was known for playing Jessica Pearson in the show.
After years of travelling between Los Angeles to Toronto for the show's shoot, Torres, who lives in LA with husband Laurence Fishburne and their daughter, was ready for a change, reported New York Times.
"My contract was up, so this wasn't a power play that went terribly wrong. My personal life needed to be tended to," she said.
The show, which brings the fast-paced world of a Manhattan corporate law firm to television, will be back from its mid-season break in India on January 28 on Comedy Central. It also stars Gabriel Macht and Patrick J Adams.
