Lady Heather

Lady Heather


Heather Kessler, also known as Lady Heather, is a fictional character on the CBS crime drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, portrayed by Melinda Clarke.
This recurring character is a professional dominatrix and a potential romantic interest for then regular CSI supervisor Gil Grissom, as well as romantic rival to CSI forensic scientist Sara Sidle.
The character appeared in six episodes of CSI.

Lady Heather was created by writer Jerry Stahl. He has written some of CSI's most controversial episodes, which have also sometimes been the most watched.

Melinda Clarke has said that she became interested in playing Lady Heather because of the contrasts embodied within the character:

"a multidimensional person who hadn't been seen, a dominatrix who was much more evolved — enigmatic and empowered".
As noted in The Philosophy of TV Noir, Lady Heather is an "inspired variant" on the classic film noir femme fatale, with different aspects of her personality being explored over the course of multiple episodes.
Bill Keveney of USA Today nominates Lady Heather as a favorite of viewers, crediting "her ability to read the usually opaque Grissom".
Steven Cohan explores in his book on the series, Lady Heather as part of the show's "questioning of identity and the status of normality".
