Biografie von Julianna Margulies

ist auf der New Yorker Upper West Side in Verhältnissen aufgewachsen, sie man guten Gewissens wohlbehütet nennen kann. Ihre Mutter war Balletttänzerin, ihr Vater ein angesehener Akademiker, Philosoph, Autor und bekannter Madison Avenue-Werber. Aufgrund beruflicher Verpflichtungen ihrer Eltern verbrachte Julianna, gemeinsam mit ihren beiden Schwestern, Teile ihrer Kindheit auch in Frankreich und England.

Erst College-Abschluss, dann Schauspiel

Wer schon als Kind und Jugendliche so viel reist und Einblicke in andere Kulturen gewinnen darf, den zieht es wohl immer wieder auf Reisen. So auch Julianna, die nach ihrem Highschool-Abschluss ein Jahr im italienischen Florenz verbrachte. Zurück in den USA besuchte sie das renommierte "Sarah Lawrence College" in New York und studierte dort Kunstgeschichte. Doch ihre eigentliche Leidenschaft war die Schauspielerei, die sie während ihrer Collegezeit in diversen Stücken auf dem Campus auslebte. Mit ihrem College-Abschluss in der Tasche und dem Gefühl von Sicherheit, etwas Handfestes gelernt zu haben, entschied sich Julianna die Schauspielerei von der Pike auf zu lernen. Unterricht nahm sie am New Yorker "The Acting Studio Inc.". Mit ersten Erfahrungen und dem Schauspiel-Handwerk gewappnet ging sie dann ins sonnige Florida, wo sie hauptsächlich Theater spielte und sich mit Kellnerjobs und Werbespots über Wasser hielt.

Juliannas Durchbruch mit "Emergency Room – Die Notaufnahme"

Ihr Schauspieldebüt fernab der Theaterbühne gab Julianna 1991 an der Seite von als Prostituierte im Actionfilm "Out for Justice". Nach drei Jahren und mehreren kleineren TV-Rollen ergatterte Julianna die Rolle, die sie berühmt machte: die Krankenschwester Carol Hathaway in der erfolgreichen US-Fernsehserie "Emergency Room – Die Notaufnahme". Ursprünglich war geplant, dass ihre Figur nach einigen Folgen sterben sollte, doch am Ende verbliebt Julianna ganze sechs Jahre, sechs Staffeln, bis 2000 in der Serie. Und sie war unglaublich erfolgreich. Nicht nur, dass sie jedes Jahr ihrer "ER"-Zeit für einen Emmy nominiert wurde und ihn 1994 sogar mit nach Hause nehmen durfte. Darüber hinaus war sie das einzige reguläre Cast-Mitglied, das überhaupt einen Emmy gewonnen hatte.

Julianna weiß, was sie will

Bei dem Erfolg wunderten sich natürlich alle, wieso Julianna nach sechs Jahren und einem 27 Millionen Dollar Angebot dennoch ihre Rolle hinschmiss, doch sie hatte andere Pläne. "Ich bin eine clevere Frau. Mit meinem guten Einkommen hatte ich mit 32 meine Hypothek vollständig abbezahlt. Mein Vater fragte mich: 'Wenn du morgen von einem Bus überfahren wirst, hast du dann dein Leben wahrhaftig gelebt oder hast du nur darauf gewartet, reich zu werden?' Wenn ich sterben würde, würde ich dann zurückblicken und denken: 'Du Idiot! Du hättest nach Prag gehen oder am Broadway spielen können'? Das waren die Dinge, die ich machen wollte."

Auf zu neuen Ufern: "Good Wife"

Zeit für einen Tapetenwechsel also. In den kommenden Jahren sah man Julianna auf diversen Theaterbühnen im ganzen Land, in einigen Spielfilmen und TV-Serien. 2009 nahm sie für eine neue TV-Serie die Rolle an, die ihr nach sechs vergeblichen Nominierungen endlich den begehrten Golden Globe und zwei weitere Emmys einbrachte: die Hauptrolle der Alicia Florrick in der Serie "Good Wife". Nach etlichen Auszeichnungen für die Serie und Julianna findet die Geschichte um die Anwältin, die nach einem Skandal und mehrjähriger Haftstrafe ihres Mannes für den Familienunterhalt sorgt, nach sieben Staffeln ein Ende. Für Julianna ist es also wieder an der Zeit für neue Projekte – aber wie wir wissen, macht ihr das ja nichts aus.

Let's talk about guns. Because the fact is, gun violence is a women’s issue. Whether we're sitting in, speaking out, or donning our finest red sweaters, we're helping amplify important messages today. This global protest today, on International Women's Day, is our way of demanding and fighting for a more just and equal world for women. Nearly twenty people, almost all of them women, are physically abused every minute in America. That number should light a fire under all of us and shine a light on the work this nation still has ahead of it to ensure we're doing all we can to protect victims of domestic violence But it's not enough to stop there. When domestic abusers have access to guns, the violence turns deadly. In fact, victims of domestic violence are five times more likely to be killed by their abuser when there is a gun in the home - regardless of who it belongs to. Man or woman, a gun bought for protection is more likely to injure or kill someone in that very home. We can't afford to talk about domestic violence without talking about guns. We owe it to the women protesting and striking and wearing red beside us to talk about guns and demand solutions to gun violence. That means, first and foremost, keeping guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, and we know Brady background checks are the best way to do that. In fact, states with expanded background checks for all handgun sales have seen a 46% drop in women shot and killed by a partner. If you’re wearing red today, or you’re staying home or speaking out, I’m going to assume a few things about you: that you believe in a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions, her right to equal pay, and her right to be treated with respect. And her right to safety -- her right not to get shot. Fifty women are shot and killed by their intimate partners on a monthly basis, so we can't stop speaking out tomorrow. It's got to be a 24/7 gig, and the march must continue. We have to hold lawmakers accountable to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers and all dangerous people. A truly great America is one where every woman and little girl not only knows no achievement is off limits, but has the opportunity to live to realize those dreams.

Can you imagine if Trump had responded to what John Lewis said like this: "Well it pains me that he feels that way, John Lewis is a hero to all Americans, what he stood up against, and how bravely he forged the way for Civil Rights. I hope somehow I can change his mind, and others, by showing the country that we can all work together and have the same goals. I sincerely hope that we can all come together as a nation and heal this divide. I am asking you as a man about to become America's 45th President, whether you voted for me or not, let's try to mend this horrific gap that has pulled us apart." Can you imagine?

A few years ago I was sent a book called “Pope Joan” by a producer who asked me to read it because he thought I would be a great choice for the role and that this story should be made into a mini series. The book, by Donna Woolfolk, tells the story of a girl in the mid 800’s who loved to study Greek and Latin, history and letters. She was smart and bright and curious. She was often punished when they found her reading and writing, and learning. Eventually she disguised herself as a man and went on to study medicine and was respected as a wise healer. Her brother was killed in battle, and so she took his name, John Anglicus. Eventually she became known to be the smartest, kindest, saintly like individual and she was elected Pontiff in 855. Until she gave birth to a son, something she had been trying to hide. They executed her. The Roman Catholic Church denies her existence, and yet, to this day there is strong evidence pointing to the truth that she truly did reign as Pope for a short while. We couldn’t get one studio in Hollywood to green light the film. The response was, “we can’t make a film like this, it would enrage the Catholic Church, and no one would believe it.” It was an 800 page book, and I was working on The Good Wife at the time, 14 hour days, learning lines, never having time for myself, and yet I read the book in less then a week, couldn’t put it down. I can’t stop thinking about Pope Joan. The threat of strong women, smart women, capable women, make men feel less than. We have emotional intelligence that can guide rather than dictate. And yes, it is 2016 and we are still fighting to be heard. It is heart breaking. Those of us who have boys must raise them to know we are not a threat but an advantage, and those of us who have girls must raise them to embrace their advantage. In our lifetime we will see a woman President. Our mother’s may not, but we will, and we will one day thank them for paving the way. Love, Julianna

Desiderata GO placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with other, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy. -Max Ehrmann 1927
