Margulies hits the target with Noth in ‘Good Wife’
PASADENA, Calif. — Julianna Margulies says her character in CBS’ new fall drama “The Good Wife” is no “silly little wallflower.”
Margulies stars as Alicia Florrick, the wife of a politician who faces a sex and corruption scandal. Chris Noth of “Sex and the City” plays her spouse.
In the pilot episode, Alicia is seen standing tensely but quietly by her husband’s side at a news conference about his transgressions. When they’re alone afterward, she gives him a ferocious slap — which left Noth with a red welt across his face.
Margulies told the Television Critics Association on Monday that it took several times to deliver the blow properly, but Noth was a good sport.
