Maura TierneyMaura Tierney is returning to television. The forty-seven-year-old actress from Hyde Park, Massachusetts will reunite with former ER alumna Julainna Margulies.


That can only mean one thing. Maura Tierney is coming to CBS’s ‘The Good Wife.’ She signed on for a recurring role in season four of the critically acclaimed series. Tierney will play a self-made millionaire who has become the doyenne of Chicago Democratic politics.


Interesting enough Tierney joined NBC’s long-running medical drama ER one-third of the way into Season 6 to replace Julainna Margulies who left at the end of the season.



Maura Tierney Career Notes:

After appearing in several plays, she moved to Los Angeles, California, and in 1987 got her first break in a role in Disney’s made-for-TV film Student Exchange. Tierney’s first starring role in a film was in a low-budget, independently-produced film called Dead Women in Lingerie, shot in 24 days. The film never received a theatrical release, although it was released on DVD in 2005.

Tierney continued winning small roles in film and television, though it was not until her leading role in the sitcom NewsRadio from 1995 to 1999 that she received regular national exposure. While she was a NewsRadio cast member, she also appeared in several successful films, including Primal FearPrimary ColorsForces of Nature, and Liar Liar, which starred Jim Carrey.
