    Did Kathleen Robertson leave the show on her own will or was she written out? Just wondering because I really liked her character with Steve.

    According to this website: http://hometown.aol.com/rexfelis/faq/faqcast.htm

    Why did Kathleen Robertson leave the show?
    In an online chat, hosted by AOL just before the end of season seven, Kathleen stated that they had just
    finished shooting the season finale and that she would not be returning. Kathleen then stated later on in
    the chat, "Before I started working on
    90210, I did a series in Canada for 3 years called Maniac
    Mansion and I have now been on
    90210 for three years so I definitely don't think I want to do a
    series in the near future. I want to do work more along the lines of
    Nowhere, more independent films
    and sort of interesting off-beat roles." A few questions later she said, "...I will not be on the show next
    year. My contract was up and I really want to do film work." Basically Kathleen left to pursue a movie
    career.

    Yeah... so sad. I think they were good, although Janet may have been a better 'forever' match with Steve... Not as much drama.

    I also agree that it was very sad when Claire left. Claire (Kathleen) was one of my most favorite characters (actors) in show and after her leaving the show was never the same for me anymore

    Yea, most of the actors left to do film careers yet I dont really know anything that any of them have been in.
    Kathleen/Claire was in one of the scary movies, I think it was 2...and Jennie had a little fame with Dancing with the Stars and Tori with her reality show and publicity stuff but nothin really else with any of them.

    Well, I've seen most of Kathleen's films after 90210 period and I think Kathleen does at least moderately good work in those films. The problem is that almost none of those movies are popular. There are couple made-for-TV movies and couple movies that hasn't been on DVD and those items that are released aren't very good movies. What I'm saying is Kathleen needs to do more quality titles to enter into film industy and show what she's got. But I don't think it's her choice to participate in low-grade movies rather than quality movies...
