Regarding her Suits exit, Torres says she asked to be released from the Toronto-based USA Network drama so she could relocate back home to Los Angeles (which, not so coincidentally, is where The Catch shoots). “Leaving the show was indeed a difficult decision to make,” the actress said in a statement. “However at this time, it is necessary to get back to my life [in Los Angeles] and all the very important things that being on location in Toronto made very difficult to manage.”
