Reprising her role as Alicia Florrick in Season 2 of the hit show The Good Wife, Julianna Margulies is back to juggling her duties as an actress and as a mom to her 2-year-old son Kieran. Life is busy, but the hands-on mom has no complaints… well, maybe just one.
“Really, the hardest part of my job is the fact that probably just I’m averaging 4-5 hours a night of sleep,” Julianna tells USA Today. “And for me, there comes a point you hit a wall and you just fall down. That’s the only complaint I have, and it’s because I choose to wake up with my kid every day at 6 a.m. I don’t have to. I choose to because I want him to know I’m around. So I’m always on this constant search for a nap. It seems to be my goal in life.”
The E.R. alum says that one of the best parts of her new gig is her great cast-mates.
“We have a great rapport. I think the true blessing of the show is that (creators and executive producers) Robert and Michelle King put together a cast that – it’s like what happened on E.R., sometimes the stars just align…. We are 110% a part of each others lives. We love being with each other.”
