Eve Best to Exit Nurse Jackie

at .

Eve Best is checking out of Nurse Jackie.

The actress - whose character was relocated to London for Season 5 after the actress herself moved back to her native country - arrived at this decision herself, executive producer Richie Jackson says tells TV Line.

“She wanted to move back to London and devote time to theatre work there," Jackson said.

Friend or Enabler?

Best has portrayed Jackie's close friend and confidant, Dr. Eleanor O'Hara, since the show premiered on Showtime in 2009.

It wraps up Season 5 on Sunday and was picked up last week for Season 6.
