Why The Good Wife's Julianna Margulies Was 'Instrumental' in Her TV Son's Decision to Attend College

Originally posted 04/29/2016 02:20PM

Graham Phillips spent the better part of seven years playing Zach, the son of Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) on The Good Wife, and during that time he developed a close mother-son dynamic with Margulies.

"Having Julianna as my fake mother for the last seven years was great," Phillips told PEOPLE at Thursday's The Good Wife's series finale party at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. "She really was very maternal to me these last seven years."

Julianna Margulies Reflects on The Good Wife's First Season: 'I Was Overwhelmed with Being a New Mom'

Originally posted 04/29/2016 11:30AM

After seven stunning seasons, The Good Wife is finally coming to an end on May 8.

When the cast looks back on the show's early years, it's hard not to be surprised by how far they've come – especially for the show's lead, Julianna Margulies, who had a particularly hard time in the first season.

"I was so overwhelmed with being a new mom and being the lead of the show and trying to make everything work," Margulies told PEOPLE Thursday at the show's series finale party at New York City's Museum of Modern Art. "Anyone that has done a show can tell you that your first season is the hardest because nothing has been fleshed out yet."

The Good Wife Creators Talk Final Season: 'This Is Not a Show That Is Ending Because Anybody Hates Each Other'

Originally posted 02/08/2016 03:35PM

The Good Wife may be ending, but it's not because of any bad blood.

During a Monday press conference call, co-creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King opened up about the recent news that the show will conclude after nine episodes – which CBS announced with an ad during the Super Bowl on Sunday.

"This is not a show that is ending because anybody hates each other. We're ending the show because really it is a show that should be ending," Robert told reporters, explaining that even after seven years working together, the cast and crew are "still very happy with each other" – in fact, they "couldn't be happier."

The Good Wife: Archie Panjabi Fires Back After Julianna Margulies Says They Couldn't Shoot Final Scene Together Because of The Fall

Originally posted 10/05/2015 12:00PM

In May, Archie Panjabi's bittersweet exit from The Good Wife was mired by the news that she and costar Julianna Margulies did not actually film their characters' last scene together.

As Entertainment Weekly confirmed, CBS used a split-screen, editing the actresses into the same frame – reportedly because of discord between them.

Margulies, 49, tried to temper the rumors at the New Yorker Festival on Sunday, denying a feud.
