Contrary to erroneous rumors about salary negotiations, Erin's departure from The L Word (2004) was purely a creative decision from the show's creators, in particular Ilene Chaiken and Rose Lam. The creators wanted to tell an impacting story about death from cancer, and believed that Erin's immensely popular character - tennis player Dana Fairbanks - was well-liked enough to send a very strong message about mortality. The decision to kill Dana was met with great opposition from cast members and Erin herself. To this day, this remains the show's most controversial storyline.
Speaks French fluently, and spends a lot of her time outside work in France.
Has confirmed that she is heterosexual in real life, but continues to be open-minded about love.
She was educated at Vassar College. Upon graduating from there (with a degree in Architecture and Art History), she relocated to New York to begin her entertainment career. She later moved to Los Angeles to further her career.
