Julianna Margulies admits that she occasionally gets rejected from TV shows but claims she never gives up because she loves acting.
Actress Julianna Margulies still gets rejected from TV shows - she lost out on a part on Gabriel Byrne's cable hit "In Treatment" just last year, in 2009. The former "E.R." star was desperate to land a role on the critically acclaimed drama and offered to audition for it - to prove she was perfect for the part.
"There was a great role and they said, 'Well, we're not sure you're right'. And I said, 'I'll audition ... ' I went and did a great audition and still got rejected. And there I was ... going, 'What am I doing? This is horrible.' But you do it because you love it (acting)."
However, Margulies wasn't fazed by the knock-back for too long - her role in hit U.S. show "The Good Wife" won her a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Television Series Drama in early February.
