Brit Saffron Burrows Is Now American

Saffron Burrows

The newest star of 'Law and Order: Criminal Intent' officially took an oath to become the legal citizen of United States.

British actress Saffron Burrows has swapped her British passport for an American one after becoming a U.S. citizen last year. The former "Boston Legal" star, 37, reveals she recently completed the required paperwork and passed the test to earn the right to live permanently on U.S. soil.

She says, "I became an American last summer. I had the ceremony with 4,000 people downtown (in Los Angeles)." Burrows isn't the first Brit to become an American - her ex-boyfriend, Scottish-born actor Alan Cumming, and actress Gabrielle Anwar have also switched their nationality.

Saffron Burrows joined the cast of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" as Detective Serena Stevens, replacing Julianne Nicholson aka Detective Megan Wheeler who was pregnant and having a child during taping.

    I didn't realise that Wheeler was leaving. Now that all the good actors are leaving Criminal Intent I think that I shall have to give up watching if they are replacing them with rubbish like her
