Nomination reaction: Julianna Marguiles

Alicia Florrick on 'The Good Wife'

Julianna Marguiles, Alicia Florrick on “The Good Wife”

“She (her character) is strong but only by default. I mean she is a very smart woman and married a bright man and was really fine with taking a back seat to him so it wasn’t necessarily the strongest of choices. She ended up having to be strong because of the situation she is thrown into. So I was very interested in playing this character because she is very complex.”
