Emmy Award-winner Julianna Margulies might love her profession, but she’s hoping her son Kieran Lindsay, 2, won’t want to follow in her footsteps.
“Listen, whatever he wants to do I will support wholeheartedly,” she tells Moviefone. “But I hope he doesn’t want to become an actor.”
Adds the 44-year-old actress, “I love what I do, but it’s not easy.”
I think for most people it’s not an easy profession, and certainly a very difficult profession to break in to, so if he does want to be an actor, then at 18 he can make that choice. Until then, he’s going to school.
Julianna, who also stars in The Good Wife, goes on to express her excitement about her latest film, City Island, and how the timing of the shoot was perfect:
“I had just had my baby, and it was so good to be out of my own skin for a minutes, and get back into acting and to sort of find my identity again as an actor,” she explains. “And to be able to play someone so out there, it was just fun to disappear.”
Kieran is the only child for the former ER star and her husband of nearly three years, Keith Lieberthal.
