Julianna Luisa Margulies (born June 8, 1966, Spring Valley, New York, United States) is an Emmy award-winning American actress known for her role as Nurse Carol Hathaway on the NBC medical drama ER.
Margulies, the youngest of three daughters, was born in Spring Valley, New York, the daughter of Francesca, a ballet dancer and eurythmy teacher, and Paul Margulies, a writer who wrote the Alka-Seltzer catch phrase "Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz, oh what a relief it is". Margulies attended Green Meadow Waldorf School. As a child, she lived in New York, France, and England. Margulies’s parents are Jewish, descended from immigrants from Austria, Hungary, and Romania; her mother converted to Christianity when Julianna was five years old.
Margulies obtained a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College, where she appeared on campus in several plays. She studied with James Price at The Acting Studio, Inc. in New York City shortly after college.
Her first movie role was as a prostitute looking to go straight in the Steven Seagal film Out for Justice. In 1994, Margulies was cast in a role in the pilot episode of ER as a character who, despondent over her relationship with George Clooney’s character, Doug Ross, attempted suicide. Her character was originally supposed to die due to the suicide attempt, however, the producers changed the plot and she went on to play the role of Nurse Carol Hathaway for six years, winning an Emmy nomination for every year that she was on the show, and the award itself for her first year’s performance. She was originally offered a $27 million contract to remain on the show for an additional three years, stretching into Season 9 of the show. However, Margulies turned it down which led to whirlwind of media speculation and buzz the year she exited the show.
Since her departure, Margulies has worked regularly on stage and screen. On stage she has appeared in a MCC Theater production of Kate Robin’s Intrigue With Faye, a Lincoln Center production of Jon Robin Baitz’s Ten Unknowns, and The Vagina Monologues. Her film work since ER includes Evelyn with Pierce Brosnan and Ghost Ship with Gabriel Byrne and Ron Eldard, with whom she was romantically involved. She starred as the protagonist and narrator (Morgaine) in the 2001 TNT miniseries The Mists of Avalon and participated in the 2002 documentary film Searching for Debra Winger . In 2004, she guest-starred in a two-episode arc in season 4 of the hit TV show Scrubs. She starred in another miniseries on TNT, The Grid in 2004. In April 2006 she appeared in three episodes of the sixth season of The Sopranos, portraying realtor Julianna Skiff. In August 2006, she appeared in Snakes on a Plane, as flight attendant Claire Miller. In December 2006 she played Jennifer Bloom in the Sci Fi Channel miniseries The Lost Room.
In an August 2006 interview with tvguide.com, Margulies admitted that she was close to accepting an offer to return to ER for a four-episode arc with Noah Wyle that filmed in Hawaii during the 2005-2006 season. However, she decided against it at the last minute. The interview went on to say that she appreciates the fact that the ER producers ask her back each and every year, she "love(s) that they do".
She had a minor role in 2007’s The Darwin Awards.
Her latest series, Canterbury’s Law, premiered on Fox on March 10, 2008. She plays the title character, Elizabeth Canterbury, a lawyer described as "a tough-minded defense attorney who isn’t afraid to push boundaries in order to protect innocent clients."
Margulies and her husband Keith Lieberthal were married on November 10, 2007 in Lenox, Massachusetts. Their son Kieran Lindsay Lieberthal was born on January 17, 2008.
