The Morning Show's Julianna Margulies defends her role as a lesbian.
Although Julianna Margulies does not identify as a lesbian in real life, she portrays one on TV.
And she's not bothered by it at all.
When it comes to probable backlash from other LGBT performers, the Emmy Award-winning actress who portrays an out TV news reporter on season two of Apple TV+'s "The Morning Show" seems unconcerned.
It's possible that you have had your own LGBT experiences. In her interview with the Just for Variety podcast, Margulies discussed this topic. "We're assuming the worst."
Unexpected twists in the critically praised Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon-produced drama series "Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV" are revealed in the unexpected narrative points (which will remain a mystery for the time being).
More than two decades have passed since she last played a lesbian character on screen. She starred as one half of a duo with Kyra Sedgwick in the 2000 independent film "What's Cooking?".
The "E.R." graduate was drawn to the "Morning Show" role because of the storyline's focus on women.
To balance out the dynamic between Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon's two powerful female characters, the show's writers instead included a female character in season two, according to Margulies. Women are more terrified of other women than men. "Congratulations on overcoming that fear. They're dressed as if they're female. We don't dress as though we're going out with the guys. We make an effort to dress appropriately around one another. We'd like to make a bigger impression on each other... This show gets ladies.' It made sense. I love it! "
Her casting has been criticized by members of the LGBTQ+ community, according to the star of "The Good Wife."
Only actors from specific backgrounds should be allowed to play only characters of certain backgrounds has been discussed for a long time now. Sarah Paulson, who won an Emmy for playing Linda Tripp in "Impeachment: American Crime Story," received criticism for dressing in a fat costume for the part despite being a slim actor.
