Kyra Sedgwick won’t be seeing her family around the set

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: EMMY AFTERMATH: Kyra Sedgwick, savoring her Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for “The Closer,” had husband Kevin Bacon close by her side throughout the evening, even standing off-stage, sipping champagne as he watched her field questions in the press room. The couple isn’t getting togetherness time on her series set this year, however. Kevin isn’t directing any episodes of “The Closer’s” Season 6 because he’s busy with his own projects, according to Kyra. And their daughter Sosie, 18, isn’t coming back to the show in her role as Kyra’s niece – she’s too busy with her freshman year of college getting underway. Son Travis, 21, also flew the nest awhile ago. So this year, unlike the past five years of her “The Closer” duty, Sedgwick isn’t facing mixed emotions about leaving the family in New York to shoot her series in L.A.

Now that she finally has her Emmy, what honor could come next? The actress has heard there’s “talk of a wax museum figure. That’s a little strong, I think.”

Seriously, she’s happy focusing on the show and her now-iconic character, deputy police chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. “I’m always pushing for the personal stories. As an actor, that’s why I’m doing the job,” she observes. “I was offered procedurals in the past. The personal aspect is what got me on board our show. I think that’s the key to success.”

That and its truly Outstanding star.
