Rizzoli & Isles Cast: Where are they now? Angie Harmon, Sasha Alexander & more
Rizzoli & Isles took the crime show genre to the next level when it debuted in 2010, focusing on two friends who needed no one else to solve the case.
Based on the novels by Tess Gerritsen, this TNT drama follows Detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and expert Dr. Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), who worked together to rid the greater Boston area of bad guys.
The series ran for seven seasons from 2010 to 2016, and the chemistry between the two main characters is what makes fans crave the reboot.
“It’s pretty effortless, I must say, It’s kind of one of those things that clicked from the moment we read together.”Alexander told the Advocate magazine in 2012 of her onscreen connection with Harmon.
Though the two actresses were very different people off-screen, they've been credible friends and colleagues for years. Jane was a tough tomboy, she had a big family and Maura was good and decent and together they made sense.
“Angie and I are very different people. We’re raised different. In real life we’re very different, but the chemistry just works,” - “I feel like we represent different types of women and we can celebrate all of that without it trying to be one or the other.”the NCIS alum explained.
The relationship between the stars of the series, as seen on television, extended to the rest of the cast, which included some of Jane's family members - brothers police officer Frankie Rizzoli Jr. (Jordan Bridges) and Tommy Rizzoli (Colin Egglesfield) and their "ma", Angela (Lorraine Bracco).
The duo's colleagues include Detective Vince Korsak (Bruce McGill), Detective Barry Frost (Lee Thompson Young) and lab technician Nina Holiday (Idara Victor).
Tragedy hit the Rizzoli & Isles family in August 2013, when Lee Thompson Young took his own life at the age of 29. All the cast and crew felt a sense of loss, and decided to honor him in the season 5 premiere.
“We had one simple principle, which was to make sure that we were honoring Lee and the character of Barry Frost,” - “If the people who loved Lee chose to see it, they would feel that we were honoring his memory.”showrunner Jan Nash told Slate in June 2014.
