Julianna Margulies: I turned down The Good Fight's invitation for an Alicia Florrick cameo
Margulies confirms to TVLine she was invited to bring her Good Wife character to the first season of the CBS All Access spinoff of her hit CBS drama. "I really didn't want to do it when they asked me in the first season because I didn't think that was fair" to the cast, Margulies says, adding: "I felt like, ‘Get on your own two feet. Do your thing.’ Because if Alicia had come in, in the first season, it would have been (all) about Alicia and The Good Wife. And now it’s their show.” Margulies adds that she won't rule out a future Good Fight cameo, but she hasn't been watching the show because "it’s hard for me to watch a law show right now, which is how I felt after ER.”
