Julianna Margulies

Julianne Luisa Margulies was born on June 8, 1966 in Spring Valley (near New York City) as the youngest of three daughters of Francesca (Gardner), a teacher and dancer in American Ballet, and Paul Margulies, an advertising writer. She is of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage (from Austria, Hungary, and Romania). Until beginning high school in New Hampshire at age 14, she lived several years with her family in Paris and in England. She obtained a B.A. degree in liberal arts from Sarah Lawrence College, where she appeared in several plays on campus. She jobbed as a waitress until her first role as a prostitute looking to go straight in Out for Justice (1991). It took more than a year to find another role; during that time, she managed to support herself from several regional theater productions and national TV ads. Until she became a regular in ER (1994), she guest starred in several television series and a pilot. Since then, she has starred in several films, including Ghost Ship (2002), Evelyn (2002), and Des serpents dans l'avion (2006), and headlines the CBS drama The Good Wife (2009), for which she has won both an Emmy and a Golden Globe.
