The Real Life Partners Of The Cast Of CSI

For 16 seasons, the popular show "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" aired on CBS, giving crime and drama junkies ample reason to reside on the couch one night a week. Viewers found even more to look forward to in the numerous spin-offs. Diehard fans saw their favorite detectives, coroners, and agents through it all, and became invested in their lives.

The parasocial relationships created by fans naturally leaked into the actors' personal lives, leading the audience to become curious about intimate aspects of each performer's existence. Where do they live? What do they do for fun? And, of course, who are they dating?

Well, wonder no more. While many members of the "CSI" cast are single, plenty are in stable, loving relationships at the moment. We've rounded up your favorite "CSI" stars to give a closer look at their partners — facts about their relationships, where they got married, what they do for a living. Basically, we've given you details that might make the characters they played on "CSI" question whether you should be investigated for stalking (kidding...sort of). Here's what you need to know about the real life partners of the cast of "CSI."

William Petersen is married to Gina Cirone

"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" star William Petersen has been married twice. His marriage in the 1970s was short-lived, but his second marriage, to Gina Cirone, stuck. The two exchanged vows in Italy in 2003, and after their wedding ceremony, the couple honeymooned in Europe. Petersen has one child from his first marriage, a daughter named Matie (via Country Living), and twins with Cirone. Per People, Petersen and Cirone's twins were born via surrogate in 2011, and had to spend some extra time in the hospital as they were premature.

Petersen is a dedicated father. As he told the Chicago Tribune, "I had a relationship with CBS that was the gold standard. And when 'CSI' ended, I just decided I was going to spend as much time with my two (kids) as I can." His time with his kids is probably a bit less these days, as he's reprised his role as Gil Grissom for "CSI's" newest spin-off, "CSI: Vegas." The actor was hospitalized while working on the show in August 2021 "as a precautionary measure" due to exhaustion, a representative told Variety. Despite the health scare, Petersen was excited to take part in the series, telling ET that he was becoming more like his character with age.

Cirone and Petersen are quiet about their relationship, neither engaging in interviews often. Cirone has an Instagram account and has shown that she's proud of her husband's "CSI" work, but she rarely posts on the platform. 

Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen have been married forever

Hollywood power couple Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen have been married for decades. Both accomplished actors, the couple met in the early '80s while he was auditioning for a role in her film "Cross Creek," per People. Danson noted his gratitude for not getting the part, saying, "I was a hot mess back then." About ten years later, the couple reunited on another project, and in 2021, they celebrated their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.

Mary Steenburgen, an Oscar winner, has had a prolific career in Hollywood, starring in movie after movie in the '80s and '90s, but millennials might most readily recognize her from "Elf" and "Step Brothers." Ted Danson is best known for his starring role in the famed sitcom "Cheers." In the "CSI" universe, Danson was known as nighttime crime lab supervisor D.B. Russell.

After years of marriage and stardom, Steenburgen and Danson are just as in love as they were at the beginning of their relationship. Steenburgen took to "Today" to gush about her husband, noting, "I'm in love. ... I kind of, honestly, feel like, when I was a little girl, all the stuff I put out in the universe about who I wanted, I somehow manifested that. ... I know I'm lucky." Marrying Sam Malone? Yeah, we'd say she's lucky.

Robert David Hall and Judy Stearns Hall live with purpose

Robert David Hall played Al Robbins, coroner on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," for 15 years, appearing in almost every episode. He has a wide range of talents and interests, including voice acting and music, and his wife, Judy Stearns Hall, is a musician. The two live in Los Angeles and are very private, but in 2018, they listed their lovely home for nearly $2.4 million. 

They shared memories of their home with The Wall Street Journal. "Mr. Hall" reminisced about Christmas parties and musical gatherings, adding, "I like the light and the space and the counter. I paid the bills and learned lines sitting in the kitchen." "Mrs. Hall" shared, "We lived there for 13 years and I never got tired of the view, I never took it for granted. ... I like the sound when the rain hits the eaves of the house. They're quite deep eaves. The sound of it is mesmerizing."

Robert David Hall suffered an accident in 1978 and survived serious burns, resulting in the amputation of both his legs. Hall now uses prosthetic legs, per Ability Magazine. He told Lifestyle Magazine TV, "I should've been dead, but I survived." The actor gave his "tremendous family" and friends credit for their support. Hall works to effect change in the United States for those with disabilities. He's served on boards dedicated to people with disabilities, and he speaks to groups of people with disabilities, as well.

Paul Guilfoyle's wife, Lisa Giobbi, is an artist

Another longtime "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" star, Paul Guilfoyle, has been married to his wife, Lisa Giobbi, for years. The two share a daughter named Snowden, per his CBS bio. A prolific stage and screen actor, Guilfoyle is known as Captain Jim Brass in the "CSI" world and has reprised his role for the "Vegas" spin-off. 

Giobbi is an accomplished artist and choreographer. She founded her own dance company, the Lisa Giobbi Movement Theatre, in 1991 (per her website) and has worked in such destinations as Berlin, Germany; São Paulo, Brazil; and Jiangxi Province, China. She's a true creative. Not only does her resume include directing, performing, and choreography; film, music videos, commercials, and fashion shows; sculpture exhibits and on- and off-Broadway productions — she also creates jewelry.

Giobbi's art has been reviewed several times by major publications, including The New York Times. As noted in a 1994 review of her work, "It is clear that a great deal of thought, imagination and work went into 'Falling Angels,' a new full-evening piece by Lisa Giobbi and Timothy Harling ... expert trapeze artists as well as dancers." 

Wallace Langham and Melissa Voyagis married after a train ride together

"CSI" actor Wallace Langham (who plays David Hodges), like many of his co-stars, has been married more than once. In 2013, he filed for divorce from his second wife, Karey Ann Richard, citing irreconcilable differences (via TMZ).

Langham married his third wife, Melissa Voyagis, in 2015, per unconfirmed reports. Voyagis works as an AV Producer, according to her LinkedIn profile. Langham and Voyagis had the meet cute of rom-com dreams. Seriously, Nora Ephron could've written it. 

Langham described the encounter to Apex in an interview focused primarily on air travel. "I was on a six-hour train ride from Haridwar, India, to catch a flight in Delhi," he said. The actor was startled by the noise of a crash and realized the woman behind him had shards of glass all over her. She was okay, but Langham decided to escape to another train car: "I found a seat next to a gorgeous woman with the most beautiful big brown eyes I'd ever seen. We spent the rest of the train ride having a lovely, in-depth conversation. Once we reached Delhi we exchanged information and kept in touch." If someone ever remakes "When Harry Met Sally" (no need to mess with perfection, though), Langham and Voyagis' story should be included.

Liz Vassey and David Emmerichs are in it for the long haul

Liz Vassey is married to cinematographer David Emmerichs, who has worked on the sets of blockbuster films "Avatar," "Transformers," and "The Green Mile." Vassey analyzed DNA as lab technician Wendy Simms on "CSI" from 2005 to 2010. Emmerichs and Vassey tend to keep their marriage private, but they have worked together professionally. In fact, the couple met on a movie set in 2003. Vassey told Icon Vs. Icon, "I asked him out on a date. Three months later, we were engaged! Three months after that, we were married... So out of all the jobs, that's my hands down favorite because it had the biggest effect on the largest part of my life!" Vassey was pretty sure Emmerichs would agree with her.

Vassey flexed her producing muscles for her documentary, "The Human Race," which showed runners preparing for a 5K, and she employed the help of her husband for much of it. As she told Icon Vs. Icon, "It was fantastic to be married to a camera operator and director of photography. That was a giant help, as you can imagine. David was traveling around with me for probably around 92 to 95 percent of it, which was fantastic." We'd say they're in it for the long run.

Elisabeth Shue settled down with Davis Guggenheim years ago

Like Liz Vassey, Elisabeth Shue wed someone in show business. The actor (who played Julie Finlay on "CSI") has been married to director-producer Davis Guggenheim since 1994, and the couple share three children. Guggenheim is best known for his work on Al Gore's 2006 documentary, "An Inconvenient Truth," for which Guggenheim won an Oscar. 

Like her husband, Shue has worked in Hollywood as a producer, both in movies and television. In the mid 2000s, Shue and Guggenheim collaborated professionally, marrying their talents to produce the film "Gracie" in remembrance of Shue's late brother (per MPR News).

Another notable piece of Guggenheim's work is the documentary "He Named Me Malala," which follows activist Malala Yousafzai. When speaking about the piece, Guggenheim shared what he hoped audiences would get from his work, telling Pacific Standard, "I want people to feel that you experience a story. At the same time, I also want them to feel like it's faithful and true."

Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres divorced after 16 years

Laurence Fishburne was Dr. Raymond Langston on "CSI," and he also appeared as the investigator on spin-offs and video games for the franchise. Fishburne and his second wife, Gina Torres, best known for her role in "Suits," split in 2017. Torres told Us Magazine, "With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage... There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected." The two share a daughter, and Torres indicated that she and Fishburne would co-parent.

Fishburne moved on from his divorce quickly and began dating Bronwyn Anne Moylan, an old friend he met years ago and reconnected with, per Radar. The outlet notes that Moylan was married to an 81-year-old minister when she began dating Fishburne, but she was planning to divorce her husband in order to pursue her new relationship. As of October 2020, Moylan and Fishburne still appeared to be an item, as they were seen outside of Nobu in Malibu, California, per Getty Images.

Marg Helgenberger has been divorced from Alan Rosenberg for over a decade

Marg Helgenberger was married to fellow actor and former SAG-AFTRA President Alan Rosenberg for 19 years after meeting him on the set of bygone soap opera "Ryan's Hope." The couple separated in 2008, per Access. Helgenberger stayed busy in her long-running role as Catherine Willows, who became a night shift supervisor on "CSI."

Since splitting from Rosenberg, Helgenberger has been linked to multiple men, including Alan Finkelstein, whom she vacationed with in St. Barts, per the Daily Mail

Now, though, Helgenberger is dating a man named Charlie, whom she's posted about on Instagram, and boasted about in an interview. When telling First For Women about her quest to stay healthy, she detailed her diet and noted, "My boyfriend, Charlie, is a great cook."

Another part of her healthy lifestyle is exercise, which she shares with Charlie, too. "I love learning new things! I've always liked to sail but hadn't done it often until Charlie, who has a sailboat, taught me. It's been fun and relaxing," she added. It seems her relationship with Charlie is healthy in multiple ways.
