Julianne Luisa Margulies was born on June 8, 1966 in Spring Valley (near New York City) as the youngest of three daughters of a former dancer in American Ballet and an advertising writer. Until beginning high school in New Hampshire at age 14, she lived several years with her family in Paris and in England. She obtained a B.A. degree in liberal arts from Sarah Lawrence College, where she appeared in several plays on campus. She jobbed as a waitress until her first role as a prostitute looking to go straight in Out for Justice (1991). It took more than a year to find another role; during that time, she managed to support herself from several regional theater productions and national TV ads. Until she became regular in "ER" (1994), she guest starred in several television series and a pilot.
