Julianna Luisa Margulies (pronounced /dʒuːliˈɑːnə mɑːrɡəˈliːs/; born June 8, 1966) is an American actress.

After several small television roles, Margulies achieved success in her continuing role as Nurse Carol Hathaway on the NBC medical drama ER, for which she won an Emmy Award. After her departure from ER in 2000, Margulies appeared in the 2001 miniseries The Mists of Avalon and voiced the female iguanadon, Neera, in Disney's CGI film Dinosaur (2000). In 2009, she took the lead role in the American legal drama The Good Wife on CBS, for which she won a Golden Globe and two Screen Actors Guild Awards. She also won the Critic Choice Award , for best leading actress in a drama, beating Anna Torv, and more.

Margulies, the youngest of three sisters, was born in Spring Valley, New York. Her mother, Francesca (née Gardner), was a ballet dancer and eurythmy teacher, and her father, Paul Margulies, was a writer who wrote the Alka-Seltzer jingle "Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is". Her parents are Jewish, descended from immigrants from Austria, Hungary, and Romania. The family lived in Israel for a time before Margulies was born, before moving back to the Upper West Side of New York City.
