Sasha Alexander played the role of ''Caitlin Todd'' for the first two seasons of NCIS. She left the series in 2005 and returned as a guest star for a couple of episodes. But what has she been up to since then and what is she doing now?

When it comes to TV shows, heavy workload can be challenging and even exciting for some actors, however, some others might seriously struggle with it. That was the case for Serbian-American actress Sasha Alexander, who played the role of "Caitlin Todd" during the first two seasons of NCIS. 

NCIS: "Caitlin Todd" was concerned about her health

The fact that she was working 10 months per year and 17 hours a day made Alexander feel like her future could be affected in terms of her health. That was when - with tears in her eyes- she decided to say goodbye to the NCIS cast. It was not easy for her to departbut she was sure it was the right decision to make.
