“We know each other really quite well now. We’ve been working together for over seven years, which in our line of work is like dog years – it’s like 49 years,“ she previously told ScreenRant.com. “I really feel like our friendship as people – as we got to know each other better – this kind of intimacy between the characters was an easier thing to do than if it started with day one and just kind of jumped in and pretended to know each other. It’s been great.”
Edelstein left the show in 2011 after starring in over 153 episodes side by side Hugh Laurie's character on screen. She posted a reply saying that it was time to move on to other projects, but wouldn't forget her fame and role on the show.
