why did sasha alexander leave NCIS
Apparently, she was the one who asked to leave. Rumor is, she found a weekly show too demanding. Add in the complications that her partner at the time was/is director Eduardo Ponti, who is based in Europe. The decision to kill her was pure Bellisario (the show's producer). He decided it would be more dramatic. Since then she's done Mission Impossible III and the tv show "The Nine". She's also gotten married to the above mentioned Ponti and they have a little girl named, Lucia Sofia Ponti.
