Julianna Margulies Credits 'ER' Co-Star George Clooney for Saving Her Career - Watch Here!

Julianna Margulies hit Seth Meyers‘ couch on Late Night on Tuesday night (June 12) and explained how her ER co-star George Clooney saved her career back in 1994.

“No, no — let me explain,” the 52-year-old actress told Seth. “I seriously owe my career to George Clooney, because my character died in the pilot of ER. And I was about to sign on to a not-very-good sitcom, because I came back to New York and I needed a job.”

“He called me out of the blue, kinda put his neck out on the line for me, and said, ‘I overheard that your character tested well (in the pilot),’” Julianna recalled, noting that he added, “If I were you, I wouldn’t take another job because I think they’re going to bring you back to life.”

The evening before, Julianna hit the red carpet at the American Film Institute’s 2018 Life Achievement Award Gala Tribute to help honor George.
