Kyra Sedgwick Getting Used to Life as Empty Nester

Kyra Sedgwick

After decades of juggling motherhood and her career, “The Closer” star Kyra Sedgwick says she’s getting used to life as an empty nester with husband Kevin Bacon.

“You know, it’s been okay so far,” observes the actress, whose son, Travis, turns 22 this week, and whose daughter, Sosie, is 18 years old.  “For one thing they come home a lot, on spring break and such, which is great.  My son is actually done with college now so he’s around.  They’re home, but they’re not really home.  It’s a little confusing.  But you know, once they actually leave, go away to school, it’s never quite the same.  It’s a huge transition, to no longer be a day-to-day parent.  That’s done forever.”

Kyra acknowledges, “It’s a loss, but you also get to figure out, I guess, what fulfills you as a solitary person, and in being in a marriage without the children there.  It can be a time for growth, but that doesn’t mean it’s super easy.”

As for more romance?  “Oh, for sure!” she answers with a laugh.  “Absolutely.”

Right now, Kyra is six epsiodes into shooting the final 21 of her acclaimed show, which returns to the TNT lineup July 11 — with a promise, according to her, of this being the most dramatic season ever.  The reason she agreed to additional episodes in the final year?  Creator James Duff, she says, “really wanted to end with an epic journey.  I wanted to be supportive of that.”
