LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lisa Edelstein is checking out of Fox TV’s “House.”

In a statement Tuesday, the actress said she is leaving the medical series after seven years as Dr. Lisa Cuddy.

The decision followed much consideration and brings mixed feelings, Edelstein said: She’s disappointed at leaving a character she loved playing but is excited about the opportunities in acting and producing that are ahead.

Edelstein didn’t offer details on her plans.

“House” stars Hugh Laurie in the title role of a cranky but brilliant doctor. He and Edelstein’s Cuddy, a hospital administrator, had explored a relationship this season.

“House” will return this fall at 9 p.m. EDT Monday, Fox announced this week.
